If Cheesecake Factory, TGI Fridays, and an Irish pub had a drunken orgy, the resulting love-child would be the new Fado. OK. OK. Maybe I'm being a bit too harsh. The night I was there, there was a typical Buckhead crowd:. Lots of metro dudes, and lots of 30+, good-looking, but made up chicks. The great news is, I saw no popped collars, boating shoes, plaid short-shorts, or croakies. I chalk this up to the older crowd, but it was refreshing. While it's nice too look at, I prefer a bar that has a little character (dirt and grime). But seriously what's up with the decor. It really does remind me of Cheesecake Factory. After taking in the striking resemblance, one can look around and see knick-knacks hanging on the wall like old beer steins, fishing nets, and a canoe (WTF!?!?!). Hence the TGI Friday's member of the orgy. This place gets crowded quickly, so don't expect to get a seat after 10 or so. If you like Buckhead and you like loud bars with metro-dudes and future Buckhead-Betty's, this is your spot.

This is a good place to go on Thursday nights, especially if you go before 9:30 it's free! Then you can head over to the bar across the street, and come back later when you aren't the only person on the dance floor. The staff rocks your ass off, and the bartender's will usually recognize regulars and give them free drinks!!! Downside, this place is basically a meat market, so be prepared to do some defensive dancing against the very skeazy people who listen to 80's music on a regular basis...
