This is a solid 4-star joint. Based on the food and beer selection alone. The burgers are really, really good. It's a well seasoned and dressed with caramelized onions and arugula on a ciabatta or brioche type roll....And the gazpacho - this is one of the valley's best gazpacho's. Considering there are 130+ reviews on this place - it strikes me odd to not see any comments about their seating and ambiance. Delux is little. At one point, they seemed to have realized how great they were doing, and smooshed every possible table,booth and chair together to try and squeeze every last possible patron. D's ToGo (next door) is a great concept, but it seems that space could be programmed better. Utilize curbside or call ahead pickup instead of cramming us in the main area like sardines. And although trendy and stylish, if this were anything but "Delux", we would all be rateclubsing about their shameless exaggeration of their logo and branding. Just take a look at how many Ds you see floating around the restaurant...We get it - we're at Delux, eating Delux burgers, going to Delux bathrooms, ordering Delux beer, wiping our asses with Delux toilet paper. It's a FUN place with GREAT beer, though.... Remember that! Oh yea, their fries are good. Not great. And a bit overpriced... And so many people have sweet potato fries now, I wouldn't be surprised if I saw something new starting to accompany the burgers....

Best dancing ever, and you don't even have to know the music. Well, as Kate V. mentioned in the previous review, this place does attract all sorts of people who may not really know what they're doing but enjoying themselves just the same. I am one of those people. :) I first got dragged into Rickshaw Stop for the Nonstop Bhangra night (every 3rd Sat.) by an Indian friend about six months ago. My weekends usually don't consist of much clubbing or drinking, and I had no idea what bhangra was either, so I wasn't all that excited about going then. But now I am convinced that this is the best way to dance the night away, drunk or not. I do have to warn people that it does get very hot and crowded in there, and you WILL sweat!

The club is named eleven50 because it's located on 1150 Peachtree. Now I haven't been here in ages, so I might not be qualified to write this review, but I'll give it a shot. Eleven50 is probably the premier club in the "New Buckhead" area, that part of Midtown on Crescent Street that attracts the kind of folks who would normally party in Buckhead proper. Truthfully it's a really great space-- hip decor, very large, decent drinks. However, I always thought it was too trendy for its own good, with young folks trying to pass off their Banana Republic outfits as haute couture. Some time around 3 or 4 years ago, Liquid Groove began booking their parties here, and all of a sudden eleven50 started attracting world-reknowned DJs like Paul van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold, Seb Fontaine, Josh Wink, etc. Prince has played there twice after having his formal concerts in an arena. That alone is reason to go (although admittedly, not good enough for me). It's worth a trip if you're visiting and want to see the hip spots in the ATL. They'll make you feel like you're visiting a club in NYC which is just really a joke since ATL has a long, long way to go before it can compete with NYC. The Buckhead girls will annoy the fuck out of you with their "look-at-me-I'm-drunk" dancing. But it might be fun. A mixed crowd if I recall correctly, but leans more toward the breeders.
