5 Spots for a Night Out on Edgewood Avenue

Feb 8th, 2017

Edgewood Avenue, a street connecting midtown to the Edgewood neighborhood, was once best known for having a streetcar line running to Inman Park. Today, it is home to several of Atlanta’s most happening bars and restaurants. Here are a handful of Edgewood Avenue establishments worth checking out if you live in nearby Inman Park or Old Fourth Ward apartments.

Joystick Gamebar

Aptly named, Joystick is home to pinball machines and dozens of other classic arcade games. The kitchen serves hot dogs, pierogis, and other comfort food. If you’ve always wanted to have a birthday party at an adult arcade, talk to Joystick about throwing a non-private party or renting the venue out for a private event.


Noni’s is known for serving up mean Italian sandwiches and delightful pasta during the day, and hosting some of the city’s best DJs at night. The kitchen is is always open until 11pm, and last call at the bar is at 2:30am every night except Sunday. Noni’s craft cocktails have a reputation for being some of the best in town.

Sister Louisa’s Church of the Living Room & Ping Pong Emporium

Sister Louisa’s delivers timeless fun and affordable adult beverages in a uniquely eclectic setting. Named for a former nun turned artist who left a convent in the 1970s, Sister Louisa’s is unlike any bar you’ve ever seen. Sister Louisa’s art adorns the walls, and most of it is available for purchase. Events are held nightly, with Monday’s ping pong tournament an especially popular one. You can play ping pong or darts while throwing back cheap drafts any night of the week.

Harold’s Chicken and Ice Bar

The first Harold’s opened in Chicago in 1950. The Atlanta outpost does a great job of maintaining the Chicago institution’s friendly feel. The same fried chicken and fish dinners are served here, alongside Harold’s signature cocktails. It’s a great place to hang out. Prices are reasonable. And regulars claim Harold’s has some of the best chicken in town.

The Sound Table

If you love to dance and you haven’t been to Sound Table, plan a visit ASAP. Great music and an amenable dance floor are the focal points of The Sound Table. But this downtown Atlanta nightlife hot spot also has a diverse dinner menu, featuring several seafood options and exceptional cocktails. Check out the bar’s website for a list of scheduled upcoming shows.

These aren’t the only great places for a night out in the area, but all five are less than a 10-minute drive or Uber ride from our apartment communities at AMLI Old 4th WardAMLI Parkside, and AMLI Ponce Park. Alternatively, they’re about a 15-minute journey on the 109 bus.
