Great time and awesome rotation of the best dj's in atlanta – Fun atmosphere to dance and the bar is right there. The bartenders are friendly and remember your drink and even give shots to the bar on the house, which i thought was real cool and thats why im a regular..

I love el bar

Waste of Time – This place was REALLY small (like not even 1000 sq. feet), really dark, and really hot (a couple of fans on the ceiling, but don't think there was any a/c). It was really crowded, mostly with Emory students, and I got drenched by spilled beer at least twice in an hour. I found a free parking space pretty quickly in the El Azteca parking lot, but there was a $5 cover to get into El Bar. It's definitely better to go here as a pre-game or a place to end the night, but I wont be going back here again... overall it was the size of the place that turned me off.

Great Drinks, Great Music – I frequent this place quite a bit. The drinks are great, the staff is friendly and the DJ's that spin are the sh@t...

I would recommend this place for starting the evening off.

Start or Finish, it just don't matter. – Surely not a spot to plop for the entire evening but definitely a chill "hole in the wall" that beats most holes. Great for a warm up drink before the running of the bars. Also, wonderful for cooling down from the full blown club. Not a great abundance of seats but the drinks come quick and music's quite nice. Not a pretentious place for all you cute folks to be seen, so beware. El bar is worth the try.

Distinctive underground lounge breaks the mold of the ordinary bump-and-grind. – In Short
Neophytes may be thrown by the offbeat location, clandestinely tucked behind a Mexican cantina in Poncey-Highlands, but locals in the know praise the unpretentious vibe of this chiefly word-of-mouth bar. The hazy lighting is just bright enough to convey the bar's sultriness while maintaining the underground feel. Space is at a premium but a rare feeling of intimacy prevails, certainly bolstered by the attractive and diverse clientele.
