Fun Neighborhood Joint To Hang! – At the intersection of Collier Rd. and P'tree, sits little Central City Tavern. It's a gathering place for all of us in S.Buckhead/Brookwood. Not fancy, not expensive, but a great place to just grab a cold one. Burgers are good, especially with a side of Tater Tots, and if you don't know what they are, just order boring fries. This time of year, the upper outside deck is great. Especially during rush hour, you can just dart in, and wait for the traffic to die down. Most of us in the hood, just walk over, and it comes in handy, if you've had one too many. During football season, there is always a warm homemade soup, and a hearty made chili. Almost everyone will know your name, especially the big guy behind the bar, his name is "Mule". Many a drunk female patron, late at night, always asks, why do they call you Mule? At that point, we are all in the floor, just laughing. Grab a cold one here!
Best Bar in Town – If you're tired of all the other bars in Buckhead and Midtown, you want to check out Central City. A fun, easy going atmosphere, coupled with great food and strong drinks makes this place a 10 in my book. If you're looking for a place to kick back, relax, have a few drinks and listen to some good music, this is the place for you. The menu features everything from appetizers to pastas, and everything is made to order so none of that prepackaged stuff here. They also carry 2 homemade soups everyday of the week and they are open until 3:00am if you have the craving for a late snack! Valet parking takes the need for finding a parking space out of the picture, and the staff will give you the money back to you on your tab as soon as you walk in the door! Being a bartender myself, I appreciate a place with a wide selection of beer and wine, and this place has it all. In addition to the great drink selection, CCT offers a curtious and knowledgable bar staff that knows you by name, and will remember your beverage of choice the next time you come in. This is a smoking bar, but they do offer a non smoking section and also a two level patio for warm weather fun and people watching on Peachtree. If you can not tell by my review, I think very highly of this place, and I would recommend for anyone who likes having a good time.
Good food ... good beer ... good service ... great atmosphere ... however DO NOT forget to tip your waitress! – This place is a pretty cool place to go and hang out; Thursdays is Trivia night and there is even valet parking for your convenience! Costs $3.00 however, the Central City Tavern is gracious enough to give you a $3 coupon off of your tab too. The deal is though, you need to make sure that you tip your waiter/waitress pre-discounts or else you might get confronted by your server. I really hope that this was just a onetime occurrence for us, but it was definitely embarrassing because we thought we had left her more than enough. In the end it all worked out after my boss handed her an additional $20 outside of the restaurant. Hopefully they will print on the coupons next time to tip before discounts rather than hunting down their customers as they walk out the door.
Best margaritas and bloody marys in town – If you get a little, or very, tired of the uptight midtown/buckhead scene... try this place. Nice servers, talented bartenders and fantastic chicken salad sandwiches (in case you can't handle a great burger). The best daytime cocktails around - bloody marys and margaritas. Plus, you can always get your beer. I look forward to nice weather just to go sit on the porch and take in all the Peachtree traffic that I don't have to be in at that moment...
Great – This place is a great place to just hang out with friends. It is nice to just sit out on the deck, eat and talk with friends. The food is great! They have everything and I haven't found anything there that I dont like.
Locals only! – One of the few down to earth places in Midtown.
Don't worry about what to wear...nobody cares.
Awesome food (Spinach and artichoke dip is my favorite) and reasonably priced beer. In the spring and summer sit out on the deck overlooking
Peachtree Street and do so some people watching.
