Piedmont Heights Bars & Nightlife
Smith’s Olde Bar
1578 Piedmont Ave., Piedmont Heights
This is one of Atlanta’s oldest bars, complete with the neon signs and pool tables in the back. They have a pretty consistent lineup of live music, and it’s reliably rowdy (in a cozy, divey kind of way) on weekend nights. It’s also the place to be if you happen to be in town during an Alabama football game.
