One of the oldest taverns in Atlanta, this historic dump is everything Buckhead isn't- then some. The exact opposite of all the frills and flash of the Buckhead neighborhood, this magical dive has me puzzled whose hands it has successfully greased to keep the city health inspectors off it's back.
Recently purchased by the same knuckleheads who brought you 'Furbus', its right in line with their tounge-n-cheek partying ways. Right outside the former 'Buckhead Triangle' that dominated the 90's clubbing days, this bar is more a neighborhood hangout that lets loose on the weekends. Overrun with Young Republicans, frat boys, sorostitutes, and husband hunters- you can't deny that the youthful ladies are very helpful with keeping your eyes on them, and away from the tetanus shot thats waiting to happen with the place. And if you're going to shoot actual pool, then you'll soon get the joke of a place name "Pool Hall".

Pros: Anything goes kinda place

Cons: Overgrown frat boys, highly policed area

You really do not even notice this place from the street, but it's an oldie but a goodie. We normally come here late night, but consistently have a great time. It's a great crowd, friendly people, awesome bartenders and an overall good time. The beer is cheap and it is overall a fun fun place.

Typical Buckhead trashy bar where everybody looks the same, in their Abercrombie jeans and plaid shirts, screaming the words to "Don't Call Me Darling" and "Family Tradition". The "it" spot, if you want to hang out with a bunch of people that fit the "all-white-yuppie-redneck" stereotype. I would rather eat my hand than walk back into that shite hole. Other than that, the place was rad.

Stumbling into The Pool Hall was like walking back in time to a place that time, well, just forgot. I found it only because I was early to meet someone up the street and the only place I could park was across the street. So to kill some time, I walked into this place that was only identified by an old Budweiser sign - no other sign at this place. It's kind of like those old speakeasy's that you only knew about if someone told you. So I felt like an in-the-know local going belly-up. The baretnder filled me in that it's the oldest bar in Buckhead and everything in the place is original from 1946. I believe it as the tiles on the floor are worn off revealing the concrete, graffiti plastered all over the walls and 5 large pool tables - no cheap coin operated tables here. As if all this weren't enough to keep a guy coming back, the women there certainly would. Seeing the women pour into this place like a close-out sale at Macy's gave me faith that there are still places to meet hotties other than the club scene. The Pool Hall is the type of joint that beers get spilled, people get bumped into and best of all everybody there is having a great time!

PROS: $3 dollar beers
