Wonderful Place to go – The Masquerade was fun back in the day when it first opened and it has not changed very much. It continues to be a cool and fun place to go. There is no specific type of clique that dominates here. Everyone is welcomed. I remember my friends and I use to go to Industrial night's. We loved industrial and punk music. That has not changed for us. They dont offer industrial nights anymore I dont believe however there is not a lot of love for that genre any longer. I think it is great that they combine such variety and pull it off flawlessly. Many clubs have tried it and failed. The Masquerade club has appeal because of it's variety and also appeals to the open creative grouping that frequent it to this day because of its dark lure. 15 years later and it is adored by many.
If You like... – If you like punk rock music and Gothic style clubs then this is for you
This often-mischievous nightspot is an unholy trinity of three clubs under one roof. – The Scene
Formed from the rustic wood and roughly hewn rock of the turn-of-the-century Excelsior Mill, the Masquerade opened in 1989 and quickly carved, whipped and clothespinned a niche for itself in Atlanta nightlife. Heaven, the mid-level 1,000-capacity concert hall, features an ever-changing schedule of local and national bands. In the downstairs dance club Hell, DJs spin everything from old wave to NuNRG three days a week. Those looking for a breather can hang out in pub-like Purgatory, or catch a breeze at one of the seasonal shows held in the outdoor Masquerade Music Park.
Whatever your fetish, there's a night here for you. From the dark side to the Pharcyde, ravers to rednecks, punk to funk, at some point the Masquerade has hosted every conceivable subculture, often several at the same time.
The masquerade is a great... – The Masqyerade is a great place to go to party. If only the did the "Foam Night" every Saturday night I'd be set.
A great hangout – I love the multi level approach to this club. This is a place where just about anyone can feel comfortable and the bands that they get cannot be beat.
80's are back (?) – 80's are back?. I haven't been in ages, but its good to see that last Thurs pulled a good sized crowd. I especialy enjoyed the old-school breaks & dance music in Purgatory. If you like to have a good time, dance, and meet a variety of people (GIRLS) this is your spot. By the way Masquerade is known to host big DJs & throw some hot parties on the weekends. I recommend to check first versus just showing up.
PaRTY! – Great place to hang out and dance your butt off. Something different going on every night of the week. Tons of great bands always playing there.
Excellent – This place has great music, a great atmosphere. Young crowd appeal.
Not heavenly, but not hellish either – The "Heaven" area does attract good touring bands, and its wide, accommodating space and elevated stage make the almost-certain crowds quite bearable, as long as you don't fight your way to the front row. Service can be inconsistent, though. Masquerade isn't in the best neighborhood, and it can feel unsafe just walking from the pay parking lot down the street to the box office. I haven't been to any fetish events here, but from what I've seen in passing the dance club and regular-bar area look pretty decent and inviting enough.
