ONE is ONE of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta. Whenever my wife and I dont' feel like trying something new or we have friends/family in from out of town, we usually end up at ONE. Inside, the restaurant does a wonderful job of creating a trendy looking atmosphere, but one that you quickly feel comfortable and at home in. There's a great bar towards the back of the restaurant and I highly recommend showing up early to enjoy a drink or two before sitting down. You can safely expect great service, even when it's really busy. Of all the times I've been, I've only had questionable service once. The menu changes, but there is always a great variety of options to chose from. I'm usually a sucker for whichever fish is being featured and I haven't been disappointed yet. For traditionally American cuisine, the kitchen does a great job of putting a unique spin on the dishes. ONE is a great mid-range restaurant that is consistently delicious and should be a safe option for anyone to fall back on. And if you haven't tried it yet, then I don't know what you're waiting for!

6/9 Update: Tuesday is electronic body movement night. So all of you ecstasy hipster freaks have found your calling. Wednesday is industrial/goth night. I'm not sure about Thursdays but they have 2 for 1 drinks, at least on beer. They should get something started for Sunday nights and they'd clean up in this area. 2/12 Update: I came in here on a Thursday and it was dead! I was hoping it would have some people besides the Wednesday and weekend crowds. Also, the drink prices seem to vary night to night. At least on the beer. I'm not a goth, devil-worshiper, vampire (or a werewolf), but this place is fantastic. I've only been here on Wednesdays for "Resurrection" which I think is 90's Goth/Industrial Night (used to play at Homme until their unfortunate demise). The music will range from NIN to the Cure, White Zombie, Lords of Acid, Nitzer Ebb, to name a few, courtesy of DJ noiz.fkr. The place itself is kind of a mix between medieval dungeon and modern nightclub. The details are incredible, down to the freezer which resembles a morgue and the communal bathrooms. But you really have to see it to believe it. Wednesday nights are free admission. They have a full bar, and as a plus, also draft beers at $6 which is not too ridiculous. I highly recommend Sanctum over other Uptown clubs and hipster bars.

If I have nothing to do on a Friday or Saturday night, the improv is one of my favorite last minute outings. My advice is to get on their mailing list and they'll email you free tickets a few days in advance for shows that aren't selling too well (however, you do still have to pay the $3 service charge, but it's way better than paying upwards of $20 just to get in). Instead of doing the two drink minimum, we usually have dinner there before hand which counts for your two items. The food is suprisingly good although the service is sometimes a little slow. All in all, my boyfriend and I usually spend about $40 for appetizers, dinner and a 2 hour show - not a bad deal! Oh and one of the greatest things about this place is that surprise guests do sets from time to time. I've been lucky enough to see Chelsea Handler and Dane Cook without having to pay a ridiculous amount for tickets.
