Best Place to Meet Women
Every night is Ladies’ Night at My Sister’s Room (www.mysistersroom.com), which reclaimed its top spot as the Best Place to Meet Women. The long-time lesbian bar has been reinvigorated with new energy, and continuously proves its commitment to showing lesbians can party with the best. Second place went to Mary’s (www.marysatlanta.com) and LeBuzz (www.thenewlebuzz.com) finished in third.
Michael Adkins of The Model T (www.modeltatlanta.com) is the man with the golden touch, serving up strong drinks and a warm smile at the neighborhood bar. The silver medal in cocktail slinging went to Eddy Herrera of Burkhart’s (www.burkharts.com), with the Atlanta Eagle’s Tony Jackson (www.atlantaeagle.com) taking the bronze.
Best Drag Show
The campy kindness of The Armorettes (www.armorettes.com) has kept the long-time drag troupe a favorite among gay Atlantans. With their regular drag shows and Easter Drag Races, the Armorettes raise thousands of dollars for AIDS charities each year. The girls of Dragnique clawed their way to second place, with Bingo with Ruby Redd taking third place.
Best Hotel Bar
For a sexy night out in the city, our readers get their prettiest for The W Midtown (www.watlantamidtown.com). Whether it’s meeting for cocktails at the always vibrant Whisky Park bar in the lobby, or attending a gay function in the ballroom upstairs, nowhere does chic like The W. Seocnd place went to The Livingston (www.livinstonatlanta.com) and the Lowes Hotel (www.loweshotels,com/Atlanta-hotel) came in third.
The reigning champion defends its title once again, as Mary’s Mary-oke (www.marysatlanta.com) returns to the victor’s circle in the Best Karaoke category. The tipsy crooning at Mary’s has endured as a Gay-T-L institution, making the East Atlanta bar a must-visit venue, which is why readers also selected Mary’s at the Best Neighborhood Bar.
Best Niche Bar
No bar caters to its crowd the way the Atlanta Eagle (www.atlantaeagle.com) welcomes leather enthusiasts, bears, BDSM explorers, and more. From pageants to monthly bar nights for numerous leather organizations, the Eagle leads all in bringing kink to the club. Although known as a leather bar, The Eagle has always been hospitable to all comers, and was also recognized by readers as the Best Place to Meet Men.
Best Dance Floor
The king of the dance clubs this year is Jungle, which attracts some of the biggest DJs to Atlanta each month. The Atlanta Eagle (www.atlantaeagle.com) finished a strong second, followed closely by The Heretic (www.hereticatlanta.com).
Best OTP Bar
When readers are looking for a vacation from the intown scene, LeBuzz (www.thenewlebuzz.com) is worth the drive. Second place went to Savannah’s Club One (www.clubone-online.com) and third place went to Club Argos (www.facebook.com/clubargos) in Augusta.
Best Theme Night
With DJ Vicki Powell on the turntables, the faithful flock to Sunday Service at Church (Sister Louisa’s Church of the Living Room and Ping-Pong Emporium) in the Sweet Auburn district. It sometimes feels sacrilegious to have such a good time on the Lord’s Day, but as we all know, the seventh day was made for partying. The Manshaft party (www.themanshaft.blogspot.com) nabbed second place, while Roll Back at the Atlanta Eagle (www.atlantaeagle.com) earned third place.
Best Overall Bar
This year’s top prize among bars and pubs goes to the venerable Burkhart’s (www.burkharts.com), where strong drinks, drag shows and questionable karaoke rule the night. The Ansley Square staple has helped north Midtown remain one of the gayest areas in the city, and is adored by readers. The Atlanta Eagle (www.atlantaeagle.com) and Mary’s (www.marysatlanta.com) finished second and third, respectively.
