The Clermont: One of Esquire’s Best Bars in America.

It’s true. Check the link.

For my part, I’ve never had the pleasure (avoided?) The Clermont in all my time in Atlanta.

I’m no teetotaler, but my drinking is usually done on a lounge chair or couch at home, so I don’t feel ultra-qualified to dissect their choice.

Anyone think a better bar was missed?

Maybe Will, whose excellent Drink of the Week posts are definitely worth a read, will chime in.

    It is as advertised. If you’re looking for a dive bar that serves drinks at a reasonable price, then it’s hard to beat.

    Although I refuse (when random friends feel the need to go back) to go on a weekend night — the place is too small to stand in line to get in.

    I’ve you’ve never gone, you should go it’s worth the experience.

    Saturday night with Romeo Cologne keepin’ it funky at the Clermont is one of the coolest things to do in Atlanta. More than worth the wait if you ask me!

    An Atlanta treasure. It is awesome. By awesome, I mean cheap, trashy, and fun. You never know what you will see there. And if you haven’t seen Blondie do her thing, well . . . words cannot describe it. Also agree that the sat. night dancing is always a good way to cap off a Sat. night.

    Other faves: Gravity Pub and Yacht Club.
