Special food and expensive drinks are quite pleasant, of course, but sometimes this is the only cure for what makes you dark, damp, and slightly dirty … We’re talking about diving, and ATL has some of the best in the country. With cheap drinks, eats and friendly, unpretentious staff, these dives will necessarily create some of the best nights that you can not remember … but hey, is not that what Instagram is for? Add them to your list of baroque-jumping carpets and do not forget a few dollars for a jukebox.

In addition to the eclectic combination of people (professionals, Agnes Scott students, bikers and 20-somethings), the best things about a dive is the excellent choice of drinking taps along with a solid variety of bottles, and their staff is friendly, knowledgeable and happy to mix and pour almost everything to you. They also have shuffleboard and darts for any competition with the drink that you want to make you good.

Dive bas have the kept the simple but satisfying appeal of letting you have a night out, buts still feel at home with excellent comfort food, festivities, & drinks to go around.
