Part sports bar and part dance club, Hush Sports Bar & Lounge is like a playground for grown-ups. A 15-foot projector screen and 70" flat-screen TVs deliver every pass and block during live football games right to the seats flanking the lounge's three fully stocked bars. Ten competition-size pool tables span the black-and-white checkered floor in a dedicated billiards room, where people can hone their hand-eye coordination and refuel with wings or fried lobster tail. In another room, a twirling disco ball sends a shower of light across the spacious dance floor and hookahs keep guests occupied as they blow flavored smoke rings or two-second Picasso interpretations. But above all, Hush is where people come to meet in style, with a dress-to-impress dress code to boot.
A few finger-taps on the digital screens inside Ai Tunes Karaoke Lounge's private karaoke rooms unlock more than 70,000 songs in English, Korean, Cantonese, Mandarin, Taiwanese, Vietnamese, or Japanese for guest singers to choose from. Servers visit the rooms to take orders for tapas and entrees that range from Asian noodles to stone-baked naan wraps. They also pour draft beer and mix sake bombs or cocktails such as the French Connection—a smooth blend of Hennessy and Grand Marnier.

The chefs behind Cravings American Bistro please palates and eyes with elegant arrangements of hearty American and seafood fare, escorted to tables atop simple china. Begin a night of lively discussion and synchronized digestion with a choice of six appetizers, including lobster mac 'n' cheese smothered in truffle oil, jumbo broiled crab cakes swimming in sweet-chili aioli, and house-rubbed ribs glazed with a mango barbecue sauce. Seafaring entrees such as the tropical, pan-seared Island grouper and the spicy, fettuccine-laced shrimp Diablo occupy tables with sunken-treasure-finding tips before succumbing to the white noise of chewing. Ravenous carnivores can opt for a 12-ounce new york strip steak—a choice cut of Montana strip loin accented with fingerling potatoes and asparagus stalks that double as stylish stirring sticks for a date's martini.
There is always a lively spirit of creativity at The Sound Table, but it changes throughout the night. The upstairs dining room boasts a menu that "zigzags through global influences: Belgian-style frites, Oaxacan hanger steak with salsa verde, Chinese grilled ribs redolent of soy and chile," says Atlanta magazine, which placed restaurant on its list of the area's 50 Best Restaurants. However, the menu's capricious nature doesn't stop at the recipes, it also affects the availability. The selection changes frequently as the chefs incorporate new, seasonal ingredients. On the downstairs level, the bar is a bit more consistent, although still inventive. In addition to the international assortment of wine and beer, the bartenders mix drinks that Creative Loafing Atlanta hailed as "some of the best cocktails in the city." These shaken and stirred concoctions are separated into categories that range from bright & dry to strong, rich & strange, and they occasionally feature nontraditional ingredients such as pine liqueur or garam masala. Although the food and drinks help keep spirits high, it's the live music that transforms the two stories of exposed brickwork, booths made of wooden slats, and soft industrial lighting into a lively neighborhood dwelling. Typically starting around 11 p.m., an ever-rotating lineup of DJs and bands performs throughout the week, energizing the crowds with anything from the raw, percussive fusion of African and Latin jazz-funk to globally-influenced psychedelic.
Divan Restaurant & Hookah Lounge serves Persian-influenced Mediterranean feasts amid exotic artwork, plush pillows, and flowing curtains. Hooded lanterns cast a warm glow on murals depicting a sultan's court, colorful modern canvases, and tucked-away corners where diners share mezzes amid crimson cushions or chairs wrapped in silver cloth. As they dine upon dishes such as duck confit with black-currant relish and grilled lamb with pomegranate-mint demi-glace, guests enjoy the comforts of the hookah⎯a traditional water pipe that relaxes users with smoke that combines a touch of tobacco, sweet notes from fruit molasses, and a dash of wispy ghost.
As wispy tendrils of hookah haze dissipate overhead, diners clink glasses filled with drinks such as fruit-flavored martinis and sup on plates of blackened salmon, garlic-butter grilled shrimp, and molten chocolate cakes with hints of tarragon and raspberry sauce.
