Low on Pretention, High on Fun – If you like your bars loud, raucous, and brimming with people, this is your spot. The bartenders are friendly, the DJs are tireless, and the people are fun. The downstairs area is frequently shoulder to shoulder, making innocent flirtation almost too easy. Protect your drink from spillage, and make your way upstairs where you'll find the dance floor. It's hot and crowded and jumping -- the way a dance floor should be.

Cool vibe – This is a cool place in east Atlanta to hang out, particularly with a group. Great dj's, and very un-stuffy environment.

It's ok – It's a pretty chilled spot on Friday's, but the DJ sucks terribly!!

Nice hybrid bar, good mainly for overflow nights... – Eastside Lounge is a fantastic place, but honestly seems to be a closer bar...I've never started the night off there. Good drinks, the waitstaff is very cool, but it can be difficult to get a drink when it's crowded. However, this really isn't the staff's fault, it's more an unfortunate result of too many people crammed into the small space between the bar and the wall. I don't know if it was a wider space if it would have the same appeal though.

The DJ's are consistently good, people are generally friendly, perhaps just a tick more "upscale" than the Earl crowd across the street, but not any pretention. Occasionally the lost slumming-it types come in, but they aren't too common and overall don't affect the atmosphere.

Overall, Eastside deserves your business. I've never had a bad time there, and usually end up running into a wide cross-section of folks that make life much more interesting.

East Atlanta mainstay changes its name but not its function as the neighborhood's only upscale lounge. – The Scene
Eastside's polished look contrasts with its more bohemian East Atlanta neighbors. Dark walls and carpeting ease the sharpness of the slick downstairs bar. Upstairs, warm red tones dominate the walls and furniture. The adjacent DJ booth and dim lighting encourages dancing on the upper level, while the main floor fills up with young singles and cute couples. You'll find Midtowners lounging in abundance, with local folks supporting the indie film nights. While Eastside offers several draught and bottled beers, cocktails better reflect the cool nature of the place.

The Draw
Young hipsters congregate here for an upscale drinking atmosphere without the attitudes of similar uptown bars. Though not as crowded as in its Fountainhead days, Eastside Lounge still delivers well-mixed drinks and offers diverse weekly nights. Monday's Brit pop and Tuesday's punk rock (mixing all things punk and new wave) break up the standard weekend DJ format.
