Midtown Atlanta has plenty of gay bar options, but Burkhart’s Pub remains a popular spot due to its weekend-only drag shows, which kick off to capacity crowds at 11 p.m. If you’re hoping to catch the show yourself – or simply want to enjoy the tiny dance floor – plan on arriving early, lest you be left out in the cold. Smoking is allowed in certain parts of the bar, and with cheap drinks and a friendly crowd nearly every night of the week, Burkhart’s remains a low-key spot for the city’s gay population to come together. Waits at the bar can be lengthy during peak hours, but with a neon-lit second level and plenty of nooks for hiding away in, there’s always at least a little room to maneuver.
