Great Sounds! Great Atmosphere! Great Venue! – I drove from Memphis, TN to enjoy a concert at the Tabernacle and I'm glad I did. This place is off the chain!
The staff was really nice and the concert was the best. I had so much fun and a little too much to drink! I can't wait until the next time they have something else so I can come back to visit.
Amazing Downtown Venue – Formerly the Baptist Tabernacle of Atlanta, this old-school, urban gothic church held revivals of a different ilk. The massive pipes of the organ still remain, as do the two balconies, though the pulpit is now a stage hosting a diverse lineup of national touring acts. Kitchy paintings, old fixtures and tile, and the massive chandelier provide the perfect scene for bands to come out and wail. When a band really gets rockin, you can feel the room shake and the balcony dip as people jump around. The balconies are seated and the floor level is standing only with bars flanking. The only downside is the staff (ushers, security, bartenders) who are consistently rude. Your best bet is to cruise around for parking, though most lots will cost the same.
Love it – i love going to this small place for a show
they even have a smoking section in the basement
i will be back
The Revival – This is THE best place to see a show in Atlanta. The concerts here are just miraculous. They sound better than those held at the Georgia Dome, in my opinion.
Perfect Venue – i drove down from nashville to see the band HIM. we don't have a venue to compare to tabernacle - and they call nashville "music city". that's a laugh! i loved tabernacle - the sound was awesome and there isn't a bad seat (or standing room) in the house. they have it all. an added plus was that the staff was actually very courteous and i'm all about manners and good service. all in all, a well run place. definitely worth the drive... oh yeah, and the band was AWESOME!
Former downtown Baptist church is now Atlanta's most glorious music venue. – The Scene
Christened as a music venue for the 1996 Olympics, the Tabernacle soon became Atlanta's favorite place to hear national acts raise their voices. The renovated church holds to no single doctrine, hosting congregations of rockers, rappers and ravers. Its towering 100-foot ceiling accommodates a sloping general-admission floor and two wrapping balconies, offering multiple vantage points and varying acoustics. But what's on stage is only half the show. Every inch of the building shows off whimsical homespun trims, while the performance area's crystal chandelier and grand pipe organ centerpieces are awe-inspiring.
It's the listeners who truly benefit, as they experience an intimacy lost in most venues, often standing 10 feet from their idols. Sold-out performers include Prince, the Smashing Pumpkins and Tool. Acts whose faithful have outgrown smaller venues are standard performers, as are arena gods seeking to reconnect with fans.
Mama D – I've been to some great concert here,( Incubus, Jeff Beck, Foo Fighters, ect.). The building itself is what adds to an overall good time.
boo! – my first time was a private party at the tabernacle near halloween '02. the place is great!! gotta buzz and got lost...rooms and bars everywhere, a soul-funk band kickin' ass, the bartenders were into the scene. great atmosphere, but could be dangerous with all the stairs. want to go back somtime and see moe, panic, or mule...the place just feels fun! fun "is" the key word isn't it? stay near a marta station and ride in...no parking...short walk.
Rock n' Roll – Tabernacle is a great place to see bands because the sound is good downstairs & you can get up close to the stage. Bars are inside the staging area so you don't have to leave. There are also spots to hang out & chill. There are bathrooms downstairs & upstairs.
What's hot and what's not.... – The Tabernacle is hot!!! It is a great venue, maybe a little small when it comes to a big croud, but the scenery definetly makes up for it! And the drinks....well, let's just say they are well worth their money!! This is definetly an awesome place to go, and I look forward to seeing many more greats concerts here! :)
