Address: 1931 Peachtree Rd. NE

Black Bear Tavern is a wannabe dive trying to disguise its douchey shortcomings. The mustard yellow walls could've only been popular during the early '90's Friends era. Even the pixellated logo has a certain MS Paint look to it. Avoid Black Bear on weekends or run the risk of being assaulted by out-of-tune acoustic performances from some of the most amateur singer-songwriters in town. Food and drinks are cheap, but neither are worth seeking out. Good luck reading the menu through the plumes of secondhand smoke. The bar is wildly understaffed and if it weren't for its convenient Peachtree Road location, Black Bear Tavern wouldn't stand a chance.
