I had a great time. They alternate between some soul and rock music karaoke nights that people do with a band. It's really fun both to watch and participate. Reasonably priced and great place for low key drinks and chillaxing.

We were in ATL recently and looking for some live music for entertainment. We heard about this place and it turned out they had a band playing behind live karaoke singers. This could have been horrible but the bouncer assured us they were usually very good. Turns out they were mostly awesome and the band was better. The singer is... More

Crowded music venue is a great place for a pick-pocket. My wallet was lifted on a Saturday evening at 10 High.

This place is so-so unless your a college student, then it is probably a great place to go as it is always packed wall-to-wall with students on Friday and Saturday. Very little if any parking is available close to this bar so be prepared to walk.

We are here on a Saturday night and it's great service, busy atmosphere but good crowd, karaoke is down stairs plus the food was awesome. We don't drink but there seemed to be no shortage of good drinks - everyone had a glass or bottle. Thumbs up!

Stumbled upon place out of arecomendation of my downtown hotel bartender. Only wanted to listen to music... Heard tunes but could not locate. Had to go downstairs to see band. I didn' mind because it reminded me of my college basement. Incredible young band was playing. NO COVER!!!

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel desk clerk while we were in Atlanta recently. Great atmosphere! Dark, a little smoky (but not so much that we couldn't stand it), lots of televisions on various sporting events, friendly staff and a great beer selection. The tapas were half-price during happy hour so we tried a number of them.... More

My husband and I were on a pub crawl, with just him and myself and we decided to go to an area called the Virginia Highlands. This was the first placed we stopped at. The crowd was very light (Maybe because it was on a Monday night) and it appeared to be the regulars. We ordered a couple of beers... More

I always pop in here when I visit Virginia-Highlands. I love the big, square bar. The last few times I have been there, I have noticed that the crowd was younger than I am (mostly in their 20s) but I guess I have been frequenting this bar since I was in my mid-20s also! The bartenders are usually on top... More
