I love this bar. It is so much fun. ALL the people there are so friendly so it is very easy to mingle. They say its a gay bar, but all sorts of people go here. It is really crowded but everyone just gets along with everyone.

Blakes is basically a gay bar, however I am not gay and I went with a group of my gay friends and was totally comfortable. They have a cool drag show as well and several different bars. This place was surprisingly packed! Lots of good lookin' people. We had a blast too!

I used to live in ATL and make it a one time a year thing to visit ATL and all the bars. I just love to hang out at Blake's and watch the shows. Parking is usually a little tight, but if you know your way around you can find some close street parking. The bartenders are great, especially Andrea (my girl). There is usually a good crowd, and a line for the restrooms, but the place is always great fun!!

I used to be a regular customer until recently. The drinks are over priced. You can go to Burkharts, Bellissima, Oscars or Heritic and drink $2 / $3 dollars cheaper!

The place is filthy and the bathrooms are so nasty that some guys go outside the building to relieve themselves!!!

The food was good until recently everything tasted like it was left over. The hamburgers are never cooked fully and sometimes come frozen inside. I mean I like my burgers well to medium not raw.

I went with some of my Lesbian friends and they where treated very badly. I could not find any sign of a manager and it seemed like the bartenders where drinking ( partying ) more that the patrons.

Atlanta offers much better than this so check out the alternatives before giving over your money to this place.

Great location!! This place is just around the corner from my house, and I take my guest there for night caps when I am feeling lazy. The bartenders are good looking and the atmosphere is cool. The shows can be hard to see sometimes but Kitty is great! The largest down side to the place is the fat drag queen Ruby Red.
She is mad at her own mama...(why is she still working there?), anyway check it out if you can when Kitty is working, its worth it.

My friend convinced me to go here and I must say it is a great place to hang out! Drinks are strong and the entertainment is great the music is great it is all good! Parking can be a hassle but it is worth it is you want to do something different. The bartender "Leslie" is fantastic, she makes the best drinks and has good convo for you if you are not watching a show! I love Ruby Red, not P.C. and that is what I love! !

I just moved to Atlanta a little over a year ago and have ventured into all of the gay/lesbian bars. Blake's is the only bar where not only are all of the bartenders hot but they are always smiling and treat everyone the same no matter how rude some customers can be. If you're ever intown this is definitely the bar to go to no matter what your taste is.

Pros: Inexpensive, Hot Bartenders, Hot Crowd

.

Maybe it's because there's a lot of straight folks or maybe it's because the guys don't seem to be interested in other guys. Overall, it's a nice place once you get past the mobile-home-looking side of it. It looks and feels like a classy straight bar. There's some people there alone but not really recommended for solo barhopping. Younger crowd fo' shizzle. There's lines for the bathroom but I think you'd be pretty drunk to use a bar bathroom anyway. That's just me though. No dance floor so no dancing here.

I have been going to Blake's since the mid-90's, every Wednesday I went for the Lust and Bust show with Lena Lust. They continue to have top quality drag performers with shows that showcase glamour and camp queens with equal aplomb. It is indeed crowded and perhaps difficult to see, however it is that factor that gives the shows at Blake's a special intimate quality. The shows on the weekend shouldn't be missed. Bubba hosts bingo on Friday nights, Jealouse makes you a deal you can't resist on Saturdays, and the cast on Sunday(also starring Jealouse) shows what the big deal is with Big Time. I continue to enjoy my time there and it always looks like everyone else is as well, and that is the most important thing anyways when rating a club.

Blake's is the best. This place always brings a smile to my face. Great looking approachable men, great music at just the right level to keep the energy high but not prevent normal conversation, and gorgeous, friendly bartenders that always make me feel welcome. This is really a "Cheers" type bar where everybody knows your name, or they will before I leave.

...great. Like back in the mid-90s. The cool, upscale, urban prep crowd we congregate there in cliques. Great crowd, excellent bartenders. Then it changes with the millenium and has lost that crowd to Red Chair and others. The dark wood really-needs-an-upscale look doesn't help. And the smoke factor. Like the other reviewer said, it COULD be great.

You can find anyone you want at Blake's, just be careful of the campy drag show on Friday nights, if you don't know sit near the windows facing the street, you will soon find out. A nice place to hang out and chat with that special someone, while Janet Jackson's in the back ground singing " All for you". A great place to kick up your heels and pull off your wig after a long days work, with an ice cold martini.

This bar has the potential to be really fun. I enjoy the drag nights if they aren't too terribly overcrowded (they are). Drinks are nice and strong but the crowd leaves a bit to be desired. Snobs abound at Flake's!
