Great Entertainment/Horrible Drinks and Food – I decided to visit for the first time on Open Mic Talent Night. Let me just say the talent was fabulous! Musicians and Spoken Word , the atmosphere was close and intimate.I enjoyed it so much I stayed till 130 am.
I ordered the Kick Ass Fish sandwich and my cousin ordered the Tilapia Nuggets. Both orders were basically fried fish and a whole bunch of fries. I mean a whole bunch of fries.
Our drinks were attractive but weak, and cheap liquor.
Come for the entertainment but eat before you go, and stick to bottled beer.
NOT THE SAFEST – I decided to surprise my sister for her birthday by taking her to Atlanta and to a poetry spot (which she's never done). I decided on Apache Cafe because most of the reviews were exactly what I was looking for. We got there before 9:30 to get a table (It's tucked in an alley), walked in at the feel of a poetry spot was all up and through this place, it was great. Food was good, drinks was horrible. If P Diddy aka Puffy aka Sean knew how they served his Ciroc he was shut them down. The drinks reminded me of a HOLE in the wall that buy cheap liquor and try to pass it off as the good stuff (explains the headache this mornin). 2 out of the 4 groups that performed was awesome. We left a lil after midnite only to find that my car had been broken into. They tell you over and over to pay $10 for parking or you will get a boot on your vehicle. I figured if I at least took care of that what other problems could I have. They stole everything out the trunk, under the seat and even a freaken banana I had just purchase from the grocery. (I needed that banana, because my plan was to dance all nite and this is the best source of potassium). Apache would not help locate the police department number to report the incident AS THEY QUICKLY EXPLAINED THEY ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE LOT, Atlanta's finest PD was of great assistance (HELL NAW)...THE POLICE WAS TRYING TO GET INFO BY TALKING TO ME WHILE HE WAS SITTIN IN HIS VEHICLE AND I WAS SITTING IN MINE DUE TO THE WEATHER. He asked what’s the problem; Negro didn’t you get the info from 911. I brushed his ignorance off as lazy. But he continued to act as if I was bothering him. So I explained to him what if you showed up at the funeral home and I had to prepare your mom for her final rest and I brushed you and you family off as another case(Just do the job and do it right you chose your profession). He said he didn’t mean it that way, ITS ONLY BECAUSE HE SEE THIS EVERYDAY. The only thing I could say to him was WOW!!! And I believe the crooks were parked in a white trail blazer watching and listening to my conversation with top flight police (explained to police). I chose this place for safety and good experience but this was not the experience i was looking for. But the food is great!
Great Venue! – I always have a great time at Apache! Super chill but a party at the same time, good sound, good people. It tends to get a bit crowded so thats just something to think about.
Great Place – Me and my boyfriend went while visiting atlanta before we moved there. When we got there, on time, we had to wait outside for about 20 minutes but, when we got in, we were able to sit where ever we wanted. Within an hour the place was packed. We waited for 2 hours before entertainment started, that was too long. We decided to order from the menu, my boyfriend got his food first, it was fantastic! And he is very picky! So i had to order my own. We hated that the plates were so small!!! when they small plates, they mean extra small plates. they are teasers! The food is too good for such a small plate. The entertainment was great! I love places like this, and we will be going again!
Cool Spot - But Your Car Will Get Broken In To – I love this spot, but my car has been broken into 2 times within 3 months here. One night over 20 cars were robbed in the lot right behind the club. There are dudes walking around waiting for u to get out, knowing u wont be back for hours.
Dont leave anything of value in or on your car, it will not be there when u get back and your car lock will be broken. Mine was... twice.
There is no security, no parking - and No Valet.
Great funky kind of place to go. Reminds me of "the Village" in NYC back in the day. – Go early to get a seat and make sure you eat before you go. Wear jeans and hang out. Good local venue where you don't have to get dressed up. The place is small so be prepared to be up-close and personal with everyone in the room! The crowd changes as the music changes. I enjoy it for what it is, a place to go when you don't want to go home and want to hear music.
On May 19th the Apache Cafe will be one of the hotest place to be! The Alex Sklonick Trio will be performing there. This place has class and appeal every day, and Alex and the guys are going to take that one notch higher. Be sure not to miss it! A little about the band: Introducing Last Day In Paradise - the latest album by the Alex Skolnick Trio. Featuring seven originals and three arrangements of rock/metal standards (a concept upon which the trio has built a formidable reputation), LDIP is their most unique and cutting edge recording to date.
For this album, the group has gone beyond the traditional trio format, incorporating voice, slide guitar, loops, and other sonic embelishments, enhancing the strong, melodic compositions. Also included are a Latin arrangement of the Testament anthem Practice What You Preach and an electonica inspired version of the Rush classic Tom Sawyer- both incorporating modern jazz harmony.
Soulful live music cafe splashes a fresh face on Midtown's uniform-prone scene. – The Scene
There's an underground allure at this sultry Midtown sanctum just a few blocks from hectic Crescent Avenue. The lights are dim, the furniture worn, the wall art slightly spiritual, and the vibe intellectually free. During the day, Bob Marley wails in the background, while college students and Bohemian-chic couples sip coffee or Corona at cafe-style tables. Jazz and hip-hop lovers file in after 10pm for Apache's nocturnal fun. The crowd spills into the cozy back nook, where cushy seating keeps things intimate.
Apache scores big for dropping a new scene in trend-weary Midtown. Experimental jazz jams, spoken word performances, open mics and local hip-hop and funk acts light up the stage when the sun goes down. The Tex-Mex menu of fresh tacos, burritos and quesadillas pulls adventurous Midtown professionals and Tech kids for lunch and dinner.
Soul Music Lives! – I miss Yin Yang, but I'm satisfied with the Apache Cafe. An intimate gathering of new, upcoming artists and well established artists too. Just the right amount of space, you can view artwork, sip on a drink, vibe to Neo-soul, House, World Music and more. One of my favorite venues to chill!
Apache Cafe Scores Big With Stockbridge – I recently visited the Apache Cafe and was knocked off my feet. This place has a neosoul feel that oozed with creativity and an atmosphere that welcomed almost every spirit into it. I felt that I had finally found a spot where I could just be. The food was great! The live band was great! The service was good! I intend to frequent this club on a regular basis from this point on.
