It's a 'must-do'

Aaron Paul made a name for himself as Jesse Pinkman, Walter White's meth-cooking sidekick on the AMC hit Breaking Bad. Now that fame has catapulted Paul into the world of major motion pictures, including Atlanta-based Triple 9, which was released nationwide over the weekend. Part of the film takes place at the world-famous Clermont Lounge, and in a Twitter Q-and-A, one fan asked Paul for his thoughts on the iconic institution.

Paul is a fan, and so is director John Hillcoat. Asked if the spent any time at the Clermont, outside of their work schedule, they answered with a resounding "yes." The duo particularly appreciates the Clermont's "seedy" and "shady" qualities, and describes the strip club as a "must-do" for anyone in Atlanta.

Watch Paul and Hillcoat heap praise on the Clermont in the video below.
