Atlanta is the capital of the queer South, and the city’s got the gay bars to prove it. Whether looking for a night of dancing, enough televisions to watch every game imaginable with a beer, or simply to satisfy the kinky side, there’s a bar for that here. While all the bars and restaurants listed are friendly to their straight patrons, these places are, first and foremost, safe havens for Atlanta’s queer community — where LGBTQ people can relax and truly be themselves. Here are just a few of the great gay bars and restaurants to check out around Atlanta.
