Mishmashes of talented men can do the seemingly impossible, from the Ocean's 11 gang toppling casinos, to The Village People making you dance to tunes about studly guys. For a new ATL-area hangout from an A-Team of entrepreneurs, head to Pointe!
Pointe! is a terrifically enthusiastic bi-level, immense Duluth nightclub/restaurant from an entertainment industry guru, a security expert, a real estate investor, and former Falcons defensive tackle Grady Jackson, rocking a full soul food and sushi menu and live entertainment on the marble-decked first floor, plus a cabana-dotted rooftop lounge, and an outdoor patio with cushy brown couches and flatscreens above marble fireplaces (BYO bearskin rug). Every day except Tues brings daily events/specials like "Old School Fridays" (free entry before 9pm, free buffet from 6-8, martini specials, & live soul music), hip-hop/R&B parties for "Swag On Saturdays", and the "Monday Menage", with Monday Night Football hosted by Jackson on supersized projection screens and $3 top-shelf shots during the all-night "Three-Dolla-Holla", which, if you hack off the last three letters, are the women who allow the night's name to be true. The menu's unusually expansive for a club, with apps like the Shrimp Martini (herb-marinated, pan-seared jumbo Gulf shrimp w/ mango pineapple chutney), entrees like Southern Fried Chicken (w/ smoked turkey collard greens, Mama's Mac & Cheese, fries), and Pecan-Crusted Lamb Chops w/ mashed potatoes & sauteed Bourbon Au Jus-drizzled green beans; they've also got Asian fare, like sushi, fusion tempura dishes like deep-fried Chef Special Soy Sauce Marinated Squid Leg, and the fresh-avocado-wrapped Soft Shell Crab Dome, also available at finer Spring Break locations.
Naturally, there's a full bar to get you ready for upcoming concerts including Cherrelle on August 16, Roy Ayers on the 23rd, and Carl Thomas on the 30th, who'll probably perform his hit single "Emotional", which only the macho macho-est of men are allowed to sing along with.
