I guess you have to be a local or have a vip badge to get waited on here. Room full of server's, no one acknowledged us until another couple sat near by. Went across the street, returned later for the show. Decided to sit in...More

We went to see some tribute bands at Smith's olde bar. We paid for the VIP tables in the room upstairs where the venue was. The tables were great and close to the stage, the only complaint would be they were a little tight. The...More

Great bar. Authentic, laid back. Divey feel but really nice crowd and great staff. Very much a neighborhood bar vibe with an emphasis on live music. Good for playing pool as well. Not an expensive bar by Atlanta standards. The food looked pretty good too...More

Standard pub where indie musicians come and perform at from time to time. Bartenders were attentive & great. Had pool tables for people to shoot at while waiting. 2 different floors. Also has a nice outdoor patio. Needs more parking though. Anyway, to the food,...More

Went to see one of my favorite blues artists specifically. The venue is great and cozy - wonderful place for upclose viewing in an intimate setting for fantastic music! Food was so-so, but totally worth the visit.

Went here for the Atlanta Science Festival comedy show and concert and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a quaint old building with a full bar, pool tables, and a small stage upstairs. The kitchen was closed for renovations during my visit, but I'm under the impression...More

I would never go there for breakfast lunch or dinner. Atmosphere and decor very lacking. But I go every year for the party when the ReBirth Bass Band from New Orleans makes its yearly visit. Standing room only, very few seats but who can sit...More

Spent the evening at Smith's Olde Bar for a nice dinner with friends and some live music outside. When we arrived we quickly figured out that Smith's was the HQ for the Bama fans here in Atlanta for the SEC Championship game. It was standing...More

Easy free parking right across the street. You'll see a huge shopping center w/ a CVS, Publix, etc.... we usually park closer to the street near the gas station/ATM. Very well lit, and never had any problems parking there... More
