I used to frequent Barley's a couple of times a year, mainly for business lunches. I'd been in the evening a few times, and always had a pleasant experience. Not tonight, and "If the Creek Don't Rise", I'll NEVER BE BACK AGAIN!

I visited Barley's on a Saturday night. The band was hot! The songs were old school R&B. It's a great date spot and a nice place to hang with friends. It's best to call ahead for reservations in order to get a table near the band. The charge is $15 pp, which goes towards your meal & drinks. The food was ok. The drinks tasted watered down. I did like the bailey's drink. I could not taste the vodka in the mudslide. The pool area is fun. It's $10/hr. I definitely will go back!

I`ve been going for years,every guy that comes to shoot pool with me and my brother as now start asking me "When can we get togher and shoot some more pool?" My name is "Las Vegas Lamar",and I`m hear to tell you that there are several pros but little cons.The Pros;more women than men come in,the servers are pleasant & professional,the food is cooked in and opened widow(and you can be sure that you do not get more in the ingredents than what you asked for),live R & B music,a dance for on the top level,pool tables downstairs as well as upstairs and I can go on, and on.. Now the con- The parking is not owned by barley`s,but you do have three paid parking choices The parking mechine next to the Building,the Paid parking that is behind it or the parking deck on the next block (it`s in waking distance) I hope that you would come out and view it and ask the managers, "When will Las Vegas Lamar and his friends coming ?"

Food is surprisingly good. Nice selection of beers. I think there are about 9 pool tables. Very nice. Location was easy to find bit parking wasn't. Great place for lunch or a drink.

I've been here several times. Only on Saturdays and Sundays. The bartenders are not consistent so I can't say whether they are good or not. I will say that the half Asian bartender is probably the best one they have. On Saturdays the music is GREAT! The crowd is so-so, they vary and can be quite ghetto/urban at times upstairs. The downstairs has a live band and they are awesome every time I've been. It does get pretty crowded so keep that in mind. Sundays are my thing. They have game night with everything from spades and bid whist to Taboo and other board games. I am not always in the mood for the wild crowd so I tend prefer Sundays.

DON'T BOTHER WASTING YOUR TIME OF MONEY ON THIS HOLE IN THE WALL!! Barleys adds 15% gratuity to EVERYTHING in the building. This was what the Manager told me when I questioned the gratuity on my tab for use of the pool table. If you're in a large group that is to be expected, but if an individual goes to the bar to order a drink or 2 people rent a pool table they still charge you gratuity. You end up paying an additional 15% for a guy to hand you a drink or a woman to take your ID and put it in a box and hand you pool que. The reciept tells you to see a manager if you disagree with the gratuity. Well I did and she was nothing short of a b!t@h! She told me the amount was only $XXXX and it was more trouble than it was worth to pay the transaction fee. Eventually she refunded the gratuity in cash which was just fine with me. It is obvious they are use to a particular clientele and are trying to squeeze every dime out of patrons to make up for either lost business or lack of adequate tips from the clientele they attract. Maybe if the food was better and the staff was worth it, people would gladly tip.
In addition, no one in the group, self include, was thrilled with the food. It was edible, thats all. It wasn't raw, bleeding, or still frozen. Thats the best I can say about it. The drinks tasted like juice and syrup, no alchohol.

The only positive things I can say is the music was great! The DJ upstairs played great old school music and the band downstairs sounded great as well.

I've been to Barley's a few times in the past and it' s always been a cool sports bar that's not very hectic to hang out, have a couple of drinks or play pool. My most recent visit was last week at a Citysearch networking event and again, cool vibes! It's spacious, not cramped, you can groove to whatever sounds are playing, and just as easily socialize and chat with friends over a few cocktails. I've never eaten at Barley's but would definitely pop in every once in a blue.

Barley's is a great place to come and hang out with your friends, whether you are watching a game, want to shoot pool, listen to live music, or just chill. The drinks are good, though I have yet to try the food. It is nicely located in downtown, right on Peachtree. The Jazz and Jeans night is also a nice themed event where you can just sit back, sip on your drink, and listen to music.

Last Thursday night at Barley?s was Great. Jeans and Jazz, when?s the next party? I?m there.
Barley?s is great place to unwind after one of those days at work or just that place to go to meet friends for a good time. Barley?s offers live music, pool tables, plenty of flat screen TVs and great food and drinks with great service, best bar/ lounge in Atlanta.

See you there

I met a group of friends for an after work social and we had a WONDERFUL time. We truly enjoyed the music, the social environment and friendly people. Last week??s Jazz & Jeans was Live!! The band ??Teddy White & Friends? was off the chain, high energy and very entertaining. They really out did themselves. The menu offered a variety of items even for the most picky (me) ?? fish, turkey burger or veggie burger and I could substitute a side salad instead of fries. I was very happy! Just great clean mature fun!! I plan to go back often and will checkout Friday ?? Indigo Sunset R&B band. I've heard they are great. Meet me at Barley??s!

Barley is great! You get a bunch of your friends together and listen to live jazz, watch sports or play pool. My friend and met after work last Thursday night.
The drinks were strong. The band was the bomb and the pool tables where open. This place is great for large groups upstairs and even a first date. I will be watching the final four from here. I will be back.

"I just love Barley's Sports Bar & Lounge" because of the variety of people that come to the place. I was lucky enough to have a game of pool, then go downstairs and listen to KEN Ford. (Wow, wasn't expecting this) and have a bite to eat under one roof. The staff is great. My hat goes off to Anthony (my waiter) for being professional and attentive with my needs. (Thank you). Also I would like to thank the owners, especially Brad for making our time at Barley's extra special.. Thank you... I will come back. it was a lot of fun

Barley's by far is the best sports bar and entertainment venue in Atlanta. They have so much to offer. From Pool, to sports to great live entertainment, you get it all here. The service is great. The food and drinks are great as well. Perfect for corporate events and team building activities. I will be back again and again.

I frequent this spot a lot i must admit and whether I'm going to look at the ladies there enjoying the band or shooting a couple games of pool, I ALWAYS HAVE A GOOD TIME....lol. The live band is downstairs, DJ upstairs with a dance floor, always games or boxing on the t.v.'s, and the food is good and well priced. All around good spot for the fellas and ladies yo go and chill out to start the weekend. The live band is GOOOOD!. PERIOD! The only knock is that if you dont get there early, parking is Hard to find. But everywhere needs a spot like this.

I love this place. It is a lot of fun and offers so much. I love how there is live music downstairs and a dj upstairs. You have options and you can't hear what goes on downstairs on the upper level. it feels as if you get two different atmospheres. i think it is a grat establishment for everyone. the people and service are great! I've been several times and my experience has been consistent. Keep it up!

First and foremost we appreciate your business and will do what it takes to make Barley's one of your favorite places!

Thank you for taking the time to comment on our venue. While we thank those for highlighting the good things about our place, we truly appreciate the constructive criticism. It will only help to make us better.

The large crowds on Fridays and Saturdays have been a challenge. We have changed the number of people allowed in certain areas to eliminate overcrowding, which should allow better access for the waitstaff. Additional staff has been added to ensure that ALL OF OUR PATRONS are serviced appropriately.

We also made changes to many of the drink prices that seemed out of whack.

Please continue to share your comments!

Okay, so i have been here several times both before and after the re-grand opening!!! The service is the WORST, the waitstaff and manager are really rude! The nicest people were the busboys that cleaned my table. The ONLY reason I would and still continue to go back is because the band rocks the house...they are GREAT, they make the experience worth it. So, if you decide to go to Barleys just be on notice that the service is wack, the food is extra wack sans the onion rings and the best thing they have going is the band......yyyyyyaaaaaaahhhhhhhh Indigo Sunset

This is an upscale establisment for the grown and mature to hang out and have some cocktails, and shoot pool. If you like to shoot like me, the tables are all in good condition and very fast. Come with your A game because their are some good shooters that come through.The staff is friendly and usually the service is great. The bands are always jamming and talented. The music walks you thru different genres and times. The food is better than I expected and they have a decent menu from wings, salads, steak, shrimp and salmon. Something for everyone. I was suprised at how good the salmon salad was. Upstairs you have more tables and a DJ spinning the cuts, while the band jams downstairs. A cool place to hang and be seen!!

After reading about Barley's in the Essence magazine me and my friend decided to check it out. The atompshere is very cool and laidback. The crowd appears to be 30 and up. The Friday band Indigo Sunset is the truth. They take you through several era's of music and they are great. The down side is the service and set-up. When you require that everyone sitting at a table must pay $15 (a $15 voucher is given to you and applied to your purchase) with a 15% gratuity added to your bill then you should get excellent customer service. I understand the concept and really don't have a problem with it except: they shouldn't institute it until they have their staff trained to more efficient and courteous (more customer service oriented). The layout they should relocate the stage and rearrange the tables to provided comfortable sitting. The tables were jammed together with no room for traffic. The server's were have customer's pass food and drinks to other customers. All I can say is work out the kinks and you have got a great place.

I've been going to this spot for a while, way before it became as popular as it is now. Unfortunately, I've seen some unfavorable changes. They have added an automatic gratuity to checks Fri.-Sun. They've also now started to charge for tables, $15 per person. I understand making business moves, but these additions were executed without warning. There's no appreciation for repeat customers. On a lighter note, the band on Fri. night is the best-Indigo Sunset.

I have always wondered about this place but was intimidated to go in - just not sure what it was all about but when everything else was closed downtown we ventured in - our wait staff was so incredibly helpful and friendly, the place was clean and smokefree and they didnt charge for use of the tables - it was awesome - I will definitily go here again.

I have always wondered about this place but was intimidated to go in - just not sure what it was all about but when everything else was closed downtown we ventured in - our wait staff was so incredibly helpful and friendly, the place was clean and smokefree and they didnt charge for use of the tables - it was awesome - I will definitily go here again.

Pros: great staff, great room, decent food and reasonable prices

Cons: none yet but hear fri and sat very crowded

I have visited this fine establishment several times over the year or so that it opened and I must say " WOW". I enjoyed a couple of major sporting events ( last night NBA championship game, world cup, etc.) and there is no place better to see and be seen. The food is par excellence definitely not your average sport bar fare, cute and friendly waitresses and great drinks.
I would recommend you get there early on Friday and Saturday nights because the live entertainment is really hot and seating is at a premium.

My compliments to management because they have truly provided something that this town has been missing.
Do yourself and favor and check it out !!!!

My experience at Barleys has been nothing but pleasurable. I have visited this establishment many times, both in corporate settings and for a personal night out and each time I have found both wait staff and management to go above and beyond the norm. This is the place to go if youre looking for a great time; in fact if you enjoy live R&B Barleys is the best place in the city.
It may get a little crowded, but to me thats just a testament to their great environment and service. Ill go again and again.

Barley's has really cool live music on Thursday and Friday nights. On Thursdays Tracy Hamlin is usually the featured performer. This girl is bad and is the former lead vocalist for Pieces of a Dream. The food at Barley's is pretty good as well. I enjoy the fried shrimp. The Texas Margarita is pretty good as well.

Our experience at Barleys Billiards was horrible!!! The waiter had a bad attitude and the management was unattentive to our needs. This is not a place to host an event of any sort. The owner actually started cursing at us when we were having a dispute about the bill. The whole experience was the worst. I would never suggest anyone spending time or money at Barley's Billiards.

This is a very cool, laid-back place to hang out on the weekends and after work. It's really big, as there are two floors and each has about ten pool tables and a bar. The tables are $15 p/hour. The drinks are reasonable and they serve food too, but it's not very good. On the weekends, they have a live jazz band which is really good. You can come here to play pool or to just chill out and listen to the band.

PROS: Live jazz band, laid-back atmosphere
CONS: The food isn't very good
