To tuxedoed people, velvet ropes are ordinary white picket fences and champagne fountains are lawn sprinklers. Kick down the fence and drink from the sprinkler with today's Groupon: for $17, you get priority admission, which includes cut-line entry and VIP access, and two drinks at Opera Nightclub, located in Midtown (a $70 value). Today's deal lets you pick up as many as 10 passes to gather a group of friends for birthday celebrations or prenuptial partying.
A night at Opera begins like a night for a celebrity—you get to cut in line with your priority admission ($50), and, unlike a washed-up ’80s hair-band singer, the bouncer lets you in. Once safely under the massive, purple-lit chandelier, you'll gain unrestricted access to the club's intimate spaces and scenic expanses; get two drinks (a $10 value each); and be free to mix, mingle, and dance until your pants explode in a burst of elite, VIP-energy emissions. The dress code is strictly enforced, so make sure you have a pair of backups.
Opera has won multiple accolades as a nightclub and hotspot for dancing, including a top-five finish for best nightclub in the U.S. from Nightclub & Bar magazine. Opera's exclusive setting hosts upscale crowds of city elites under the 100-foot ceilings of the main lounge, as well as in the private opera boxes and the cabana area, featuring spanning views of midtown Atlanta.

Nightclub & Bar magazine named Opera a Nightclub of the Year for 2010, and both Metromixers and Citysearchers voted Opera the best nightclub in Atlanta. Though 130 Yelpers give Opera an average of 2.5 stars, Citysearchers give it a four-star average.
- I'm always impressed with the talent that this place books. One night they will have "Cirque Du Soleil" style performance with dancers hanging from strings in mid-air, the next they have live bands and a world famous DJ. – TwoTimes, Citysearch
- Worth it to come here if you're VIP. The venue is pretty, with a pole in the middle of the dance floor and a nice spacious VIP section upstairs. – Sherry W., Yelp, 2/2/11
Nabbing the top spot in Jezebel Magazine’s Best of 2013 contest for best night club, Opera Nightclub presents old-fashioned red-curtain glamour. After cracking the dress code, VIPs can romp freely through all areas under the club’s 100-foot ceilings, including a VIP-only upstairs area with cozy private nooks. Cash in two drink tickets for a beer or a cocktail to delicately balance while finally perfecting the Super Bowl Shuffle, or take in the deck’s panoramic view of the city and its galactic ceiling. Opera’s crowd-charming DJs spin top 40 hits alongside genre-specific jams, catering to hip-hop hankerings and salsa appetites alike.
