Places to go when it’s just you

I go to Taco Mac in Va-Hi a pretty decent amount – two of the bartenders know me, I’m up to 70+ beers on my Passport and, perhaps most importantly, I feel extremely comfortable walking in there by myself and pulling up a seat at the bar. As I did this before meeting some friends last night, I was thinking about what other sorts of places I feel comfortable going just by myself. Most of them are places where I know the bartenders – like Taco Mac and Highland Tap. Both of these are places close to me and I can get something decent to eat, but I was trying to think of other places like them that would be good to go solo. I spent a lot of nights at the Ted this past year (and a good number of them it was just me in the stands), but no matter what happens that’s likely to end soon and the Thrashers/Hawks just don’t cut it for me like that.

So here’s my question for you Atlantans – where do you go when it’s just you, but you want to be out?

    I’m pretty comfy going to the Highlander or Manuel’s. The bartenders there are always cool.

    The Righteous Room. The bartenders rock (esp. Martha). And if you’re free during the middle of the day – they show that soap-opera Passions. Which is pretty funny when watched with a snarky group of folks.

    Gravity Pub, The Earl (especially for music), any place with free WiFi.

    I attend quite a few Thrasher games, 30 or so a year and I’m there by myself 90% of the time. I couldn’t imagine going to a baseball game alone. Baseball is such a relaxed, have a beer, shoot the sh*t kind of game that it’s nice to have company.

    The EARL on a weeknight.

    The Independent, upstairs from the Highlander. Of course, whenever I go in there, it’s riddled with folks I know (from bartenders to coworkers to my wife’s coworkers), so maybe that doesn’t count.

    Hand in Hand, maybe? But that’s just been the one time, so far.
