J's Lounge aims to be all things for all people. The casual, laid-back space features the dim lighting and neon accents of a club-like lounge, the flat-screen televisions of a classic sports bar, and the extensive shisha collection of a hookah bar. Groups can decide to settle in for the evening and share a hookah, choosing from any of the 30 available tobacco flavors. As the slightly sweet smoke begins to drift throughout the room, guests can indulge in a round of beers or a pitcher of frozen margaritas from one of the two bars before perusing the food menu. Much like the rest of the lounge, the menu features a similarly broad focus. Beer-battered onion rings, half-pound burgers, and New York-style pizzas topped with discontinued subway tokens represent classic American fare, although the selection also features baklava and gyros stuffed with lamb that spent 18 hours slow-cooking in assorted spices. The revelry-inducing atmosphere doesn't end until as late as 3 a.m. on Friday nights, which is the evening when live DJs lure crowds out onto the lounge's dance floors.

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.
