Atlanta is and has always been a night life city. Little Five Points, Virginia Highlands and Buckhead are the main areas of this. Little Five Points has many good restaurants such as the Vortex Bar and Grill. It is said to have the best hamburgers in Atlanta. The area is also an area for alternative rock pop music where young artists get their start. This is a little similar at nightclubs in Harlem and Chicago like the Cotton Club in Harlem and Chicago and also the Apollo in Harlem. There is the suburban Tucker Saloon that has the country aire to it like the suburb it’s in. The area has really grown since the 1970’s and has become more cosmopolitan. Cars of course play an important role in this as it does in the metropolitan area. Famous Pub is at Toco Hills shopping complex. It is a popular destination and sports bar with a friendly atmosphere and is popular with the neighborhood. Of course, in the old days it would be part of a walking city but cars figure in. Buchead has three bars in the same building that is very urban. They are Loco’s, Moondog’s and The Hole in the Wall. They are popular with college or former Georgia college students. They capture a wide variety of people that epitomize Buckhead and Atlanta’s diversity. Atlanta is a popular destination as is Buckhead. Atlanta is an international city with a popular nightlife. It is one of the most popular facets of Atlanta that has the urban and suburban sprawl that give it a big city atmosphere.
