Address: 1578 Piedmont Ave. NE

Smith's is widely regarded as one of Atlanta's best live music venues, probably because it holds the unofficial world record for most covers of "Ants Marching" ever played in a single establishment. Multiple stages allow promoters to book singer-songwriter acousticrap acts to their heart's content. A melting pot, Smith's invites overweight fratboys to coexist with Land Rover-driving, tie-dye-wearing, nug-jug stoners. On non-show nights, the gameroom is a popular diversion for locals. Still, the best game at Smith's is taking a drink for every pre-distressed UGA ballcap you see.
