hidden gem of atlanta! – All around awesome!
Great drink menu.
Vegetarian food options.
RUN DON'T WALK!
Best Beer Bar in the Midtown corridor – Great midtown bar!
Trendy Bar – Go if you have a gift certificate and go with little expectations. This is a trendy bar conveniantly located next to the Fox. The service is not the best and the menu is overpriced. Saying this- we enjoyed ourselves with some good appetizers and coctails while hanging out in the city. Also- you get free easy parking which is pretty cool!
An Atlanta classic – I live in the Midtown and have been going to Bazzaar now for 5 years...it is one of the only few places left in town that hasn't sold out to mainstream music and the typical suburban cheese ball crowds. If you like to hang out in places that have soul and remind you of the way Atlanta was when it was cool than Bazzaar is your place...
EXCELLENT ATMOSPHERE – This place is absolutly amazing. I love it! Great drinks, food, atmosphere! I would definately recommend this place to anybdy!
Uber-cool lounge next to the Fox Theatre serves tasty beverages to satisfy your thirst. – In Short
Step into a softly lit intimate space where international rhythms meet modern chic. The loft-like upper level is decorated with Moroccan cushions and cozy alcoves perfect for groups; the lower level has a smattering of brightly colored velvet chairs and small tables. The friendly waitstaff create a pleasant vibe and drinks flow effortlessly from the bar, which can get crowded on late nights.
Tapas - bogus – I read the review of Bazaar on City Search and it sounded like the perfect trendy spot to take my teenage daughter before a Fox performance. When we walked in we were greeted immediately by someone who could not find our reservation. While he was trying to figure it out we were watched by a stocking capped squater who was eating a bag of carrots while propped up on the couch behind the hostess stand. I found our reservation in their scribbled in reservation book, pointed it out to the host and we were immediately seated. However, we were not taken upstairs to the "proper" dining tables. Instead we were walked to the back of the establishment and were seated at a table behind curtains at a dark, dingy little table.
Ok so this is embiance...I'm trying to appreciate the scene until I look at the menu. Tapas is what was advertised. A very limited selection of bar food is what was on the menu. Six items including Quesadillas and boneless buffalo wings (or something just as boring). The atmosphere stunk and the food selection was atrocious. Had City Search stated it was a trendy bar with appetizers at least I would have known what to have expected. A Tapas restaurant? Hardly.
I'm sure this is a great place to meet for drinks. A word to the newbie - make them seat you upstairs. I was not aware there was more to the place than the downstairs. I looked at the website after the fact and the "loft" area looks lovely unlike the Salvation Army reject look of the downstairs. I'm wondering if they offer real menu upstairs because the items described in City Search were not found on the menu I was given.
We left and went elsewhere for a nice dinner.
Best intimate club in the ATL – I don't know "the owner" but I still get treated like VIP whenever I come to Bazzaar. It is one of the only places in Atlanta that truly defines "city". The scene is always diverse, the music is cutting edge, cocktails are strong and the crowd is intelligent and beautiful. Kudos to the owners for not catering to the main stream and giving Atlanta something that CAN be compared to NYC, Miami, LA or any other major cosmopolitan destinations in the world.
Great local lounge – It's not overly trendy, the music is always top notch and the staff is great. If you're nice to them, they'll be nice back. Since chef blais left -- the food is predictable, but you don't go there for the food. You go for the drinks and the fun.
Overall, it's a great place to go and we always have a great night out.
Sophisticated Rudeness at its worst..... – I have been out of the "scene" for awhile and went with several friends on a Thursday night. The food was horrible, the service was slow and when we nicely complained the several ROLLED his eyes at us and just walked off. The only people who seem to be treated nicely are the owner's friends (who were NOT the trendy and sophisticated crowd they thought they were). Our bill was over $500 and when my husband, again nicely, told the owner he was disappointed with the service the owner just suggested we not return. NICE ATTITUDE. We are both professional and entertain clients weekly in the city and believe me we are telling everyone we know to avoid this place.
