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

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.

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

Went here for a Steelers game in Jan 2016. Great bar, great people, and a GREAT place to watch my hometown team. Didn't get any food, but it looked pretty solid. Even without the game that was on, it looks like it would be a...More

I went there for the music. That's it. Not the food(although i hear it's good) nor the atmosphere( totally funky stairwell), it was the awesome bands they have playing there that night.

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
