The Best For Listening to Music – Eddie brings in phenomenal acts, and the crowd generally loves music. The set-up is intimate, and the acoustics are terrific. It can get a bit crowded in the table area, but if there's a better place to see live music in the Atlanta area, I've not been there.
Amazing – An amazing place to gather with friends and listen to music!
An Atlanta Music Staple! – OMG this place rocks!
Although I've been going here for years - I'm just now writing a review on Eddie's cuz I just joined today (and am trying to go ahead & write up some reviews on fav spots etc.).
A cornerstone in the music industry, Eddie's Attic has been host to well known artists, up-and-comers, indies and more.
Great drinks and the food sure isn't bad either.
Get here & get musically-eddified! :P
THE Spot for music – WOW!
This place has been here for years and you can tell why as soon as you walk in! Right in the heart of downtown Decatur, this place has all ya need.
You walk in the door and go up some stairs. Then you can either turn left, pay a cover charge, and go through the doors & listen to some great live music & have some drinks.
Or you can turn right from the top of the stairs, visit the merch table for the bands in the other room, and then head on out to the patio (where there is no cover charge) to listen to the bands in the other room, djs, etc. have some drinks, eat some food, whatever.
This place has hosted big names and small ones, with many biguns getting their start here!
If you've not been here before, please go - reviews here really can't do the place justice.
Incredible Music and More – Nestled right in the heart of Decatur, Eddie's Attic is a must-stop for music fans, where any given night of the week you'll find an array of talented musicians performing. Monday is the legendary open mic night, where you just might see the next big thing. The "listening room" is truly that -- an intimate setting where a quiet and respectful audience grooves to some acoustic tunes. Or if you'd rather chill and chat with your friends, head out to the uber-cool patio for some dinner and drinks. See that cool cat at the end of the bar smoking a pipe and sipping bourbon? That's Eddie. Go ahead, introduce yourself. He's friendly and chock-full of great stories. Next time you're in the mood for something different, head over to Eddie's Attic, a musical gem that truly marches to the beat of a different drummer.
An Acoustic Treasure in Decatur – Feeling very reminiscent of the small, yet ideal clubs of Nashville - where even the smallest room has a wonderful sound system - Eddie's Attic is truly about the song. With open-mic nights during the weekdays, the weekends pull in great songwriters from Atlanta, or those touring through. Pooling money with your friends to buy a table is the way to guarantee a seat and great table service, though there is a bit of bar seating if you get there early. The friendly door worker will remind you to silence your phone, and this is a place where you will feel truly sheepish if you deviate from the rules. Its small, intimate, and clean - perfect to see the next big star.
perfect for what it is – i love that the priority at eddie's is the music. they do everything in their power to make it the best environment for listening to the world's best acoustic music. people who don't want to be cramped or told to not talk loud or told to turn off their cell phones, etc should not go - if you are looking for an upscale bar experience, don't go. if you want to go somewhere to meet people or catch up with friends and have some good music in the background, don't go. if you are looking for a funky hole in the wall, with plenty of character, to actually listen to good music without a bunch of distractions, you should check it out. the servers and owners are going to defend the environment first and serve the customer second, so don't expect anything different. if that bothers you - perfect, don't go, those of us that enjoy this place don't want you there.
Great acoustic venue – Eddie's Attic is my favorite venue in the metro area, mainly because it's so intimate. If you enjoy live acoustic music then this is the place to go. I have discovered a lot of good artists at Eddie's. It's really small so get there early if you don't have a table reserved and so you can snag a seat in the "bleachers". There is not a bad seat in the house and if you get a table you can literally be three inches away from the performer. However, if you are the type of person who needs lots of personal space or loves to talk incessantly during sets Eddie's Attic may not be the place for you as talking is heavily discouraged and it can get cramped during sold-out shows.
Impressing menu, incredible music – We've been going to Eddie's Attic for several years now and have never had a bad experience. The food is always fresh and flavorful - it's pretty typical bar food, but well prepared, obviously by someone who knows what they're doing. And the music is always spot on. It's a great room to see a singer/songwriter in a more personal setting.
Customer Service issues – I have been to Eddies many times, but will not go back. I recently purchased tickets online, received a confirmation number, and my credit card was billed. I received an email one week before the show noting that they had increase the price of the tickets ($10 to $25) and they were going to refund my card. They said I could repurchase them if I would like.
I had adjusted my schedule to make this show and was disappointed and confused on how they could do this. I call and requested to speak to the owner and was told he was busy at the moment and he could call me back as soon as he had a moment. I never received a call.
EA books great musicians but out of principle I cannot support them at this venue.
