I drove from Memphis, TN to enjoy a concert at the Tabernacle and I'm glad I did. This place is off the chain!

The staff was really nice and the concert was the best. I had so much fun and a little too much to drink! I can't wait until the next time they have something else so I can come back to visit.

Formerly the Baptist Tabernacle of Atlanta, this old-school, urban gothic church held revivals of a different ilk. The massive pipes of the organ still remain, as do the two balconies, though the pulpit is now a stage hosting a diverse lineup of national touring acts. Kitchy paintings, old fixtures and tile, and the massive chandelier provide the perfect scene for bands to come out and wail. When a band really gets rockin, you can feel the room shake and the balcony dip as people jump around. The balconies are seated and the floor level is standing only with bars flanking. The only downside is the staff (ushers, security, bartenders) who are consistently rude. Your best bet is to cruise around for parking, though most lots will cost the same.

Cons: Dreadful Staff

This is THE best place to see a show in Atlanta. The concerts here are just miraculous. They sound better than those held at the Georgia Dome, in my opinion.

I saw the Pet Shop Boys here for the 1st time they were here in Atlanta. They chose the Tabernacle and it's an experience YOU NEVER FORGET. Of course, I was not in general addimisson "seats" more like "setting"--no way. I was in the balcony closest to where you could the the boys the best. I have seen them since but the Tabernacle was the greatest--AND THEY ARE BACK OCT.19--RUN AND GET TICKETS, THEY PUT ON AN UNBELIEVABLE SHOW, VISUALLY AND MUSICALLY. Thanks Tabernacle, you're the best venue IN TOWN--PERIOD!! There is no sub.

PROS: Beautiful, FANTASTC lighting & superb pounding music.
CONS: Seats & more Seats, but it makes since. The Tabernacle is the BEST!!!

i drove down from nashville to see the band HIM. we don't have a venue to compare to tabernacle - and they call nashville "music city". that's a laugh! i loved tabernacle - the sound was awesome and there isn't a bad seat (or standing room) in the house. they have it all. an added plus was that the staff was actually very courteous and i'm all about manners and good service. all in all, a well run place. definitely worth the drive... oh yeah, and the band was AWESOME!

It is entirely true that the venue does not have many seats - there are seats on the balcony levels, but not on the floor. However, this is perfect for some shows - the kind where audience expects to go wild, dance, mosh and the like. The view from balcony is pretty decent, and that's where comfort is. There are bars strategically located along the main floor and on the balcony level. Bathrooms on the second level are not very large and usually have huge lines, but there are also often-overlooked bathrooms on the bottom floor, with more stalls and usually a lot fewer people (I'm speaking from female perspective, here).

The Tabernacle is a place were a lot of concerts are help. It is kind of an interesting place but they need to make some additions. There are no seats and it is very crowded. Also there is no smoking. It gets hot very quick because it can get so packed. It does not look all that clean. They do have some great concerts there tho.

The venue is a pretty neat place, and overall I have had good experiences here, though there is never enough seats and if you are at the stage level, good luck getting out.

This is a neat venue to watch a show. I'm much happier on the higher levels where I can sit down, be close to a bar, and get a good (albeit from above) view of the stage. Also, there's no smoking.

The air-conditioning system needs to be fixed, though. It can get pretty hot in there.

PROS: Non smoking, seating at higher levels
CONS: A/C doesn't work well

I just wish this place had seats. I went to a concert here and had to stand in heals the whole time! I wish they would have at least stated they don't provide seats in the venue, that way I would have been more prepared.

I've been to some great concert here,( Incubus, Jeff Beck, Foo Fighters, ect.). The building itself is what adds to an overall good time.

my first time was a private party at the tabernacle near halloween '02. the place is great!! gotta buzz and got lost...rooms and bars everywhere, a soul-funk band kickin' ass, the bartenders were into the scene. great atmosphere, but could be dangerous with all the stairs. want to go back somtime and see moe, panic, or mule...the place just feels fun! fun "is" the key word isn't it? stay near a marta station and ride in...no parking...short walk.

Tabernacle is a great place to see bands because the sound is good downstairs & you can get up close to the stage. Bars are inside the staging area so you don't have to leave. There are also spots to hang out & chill. There are bathrooms downstairs & upstairs.

The Tabernacle is hot!!! It is a great venue, maybe a little small when it comes to a big croud, but the scenery definetly makes up for it! And the drinks....well, let's just say they are well worth their money!! This is definetly an awesome place to go, and I look forward to seeing many more greats concerts here! :)

I am very disappointed with the Tabernacle. I bought tickets for PINK last month. The concert was cancelled, no warning and no information on when she would be rescheduled for. The only thing people were told was that they had to check listen to the radio to find out when she would return. The concert was rescheduled for the 11th of July... now the excuse is that they have had flooding and will be closed for two weeks; You had to find this out in the newspaper, to top it off, they dont know if they can find another venue for her to play. When you call, they wont answer the phone and if they do by mistake, they dont have any information. They won't even refund you money!!! What's up with that? As Clark Howard would put it the Tabernacle thrives in customer NO service. Give us a clue!!!

Like most Atlantans, I adore this place. I do have a parking tip, though. Went to see Belle & Sebastian the other night and thought I was being smart by parking in a $4 deck. Problem is, everyone else had that idea, and it took almost an hour to get out of there. My suggestion: if you dont know any secret downtown spots, go ahead and pay the money to park in a lot.
