5. The Righteous Room 1051 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30306

Eyes are immediately drawn to the tree stuck right through the bright-red ovular bar, the devil's in the details at this rock-n-roll bar and kitchen near Atkins Park. If you go straight to the bar for a local draft from the handful they've got, you might not properly take them all in. They're everywhere -- the chipped black paint coming off the brick walls, layer after layer of stickers and graffiti left by customers, AC/DC and Braves knick knacks -- and the cooks pay just as much attention to details in seemingly simple flatbreads and sandwiches with a sprinkle of arugula or a rosemary glaze.

6. Six Feet Under Pub & Fish House, Westside 685 11th St NW, Atlanta, GA 30318 (Home Park)

The Westside outpost of Six Feet Under Pub & Fish House is home to exactly what it boasts in its name: beer and seafood. The Southern-inflected menu features a bivalve heavy raw bar, a variety of seafood soups -- like fish stew, chowder, and gumbo -- seafood-centric sandwiches and platters, as well as cornmeal-crusted, deep-fried shrimp, catfish, or oyster baskets, all served with chips, jalapeño tartar sauce, and jalapeño hush puppies. Enjoy the bounty of the sea with any of two dozen rotating draft beers, and take in the unparalleled views of Atlanta’s skyline from the outdoor rooftop bar.

7. Grindhouse Killer Burgers 1842 Piedmont Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30324 (Buckhead)

Grindhouse Killer Burgers is kind of like the reading a 'Choose Your Own Adventure' book, but it's better because there's food involved. Orders are customized from scratch from the meat (beef/turkey/veggie) to the size of the patties to the toppings (of which there are a dozen), but if you aren't feeling creative, there are a handful of burger "styles," like the Hillbilly with brisket chili and the bleu cheese-heavy Yankee. A lot of folks drop by and get theirs to go, but they miss out on the kung fu movies that are always playing on the flatscreen tvs.

8. Hand in Hand 752 N Highland Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30306 (Virginia Highland)

With black and gold trim and a Victorian-style interior, Atkins Park's Hand In Hand is the closest thing you'll find to an actual English pub in Atlanta. Daily specials send prices through the floor so you won't break the bank if you venture outside the fried mushroom and deviled egg snacks and head straight for the classic bangers and mash or a New York strip. There's usually a few tables available on the wrap-around patio, and they've got plenty of space for your whole group, their plates, and their frosty imported pints.

9. Tin Lizzy's Cantina Grant Park 415 Memorial Dr, Atlanta, GA 30312 (Atlanta)

Tin Lizzy's has the perfect rooftop to soak up some sun and take in the surrounding views (even if the surrounding views happen to be a cemetery). They've also got standard Mexican fare for cheap, like tacos, nachos, quesadillas & 'ritas.
