For years, Atlanta has been known as a superb city for singles. Heck, back in 2008, Forbes ranked it the “Best City for Singles” in its annual list citing job growth, good weather and the nightlife and culture as contributing factors. Being one of the fastest growing cities, Atlanta has attracted 20-somethings and latest college graduates since the 1970s, but now in the 2000s, it draws singles because there is so much going on in the largest city in the South. Here are some of the bars that are frequented by the singles that inhabit Atlanta.

The Andrews entertainment district in Atlanta has been ground zero for singles’ activities for well over a decade, but its current layout is drawing people of all ages and interests. World class dining, entertainment like an improv comedy club and nightlife options pack the singles in all week long. Andrews Upstairs has been voted Atlanta’s best dance club and USA Today calls it one of the best places to drink vodka in the entire country. East Andrews makes it a point to know what singles want, and it produces. Don’t leave behind about the late night pizza to sate that after-hours thirst.

There is no better bar for singles to string up out at in Cobb County than Crimson Sky Tapas. In fact, this is where the East Cobb singles’ group meets. It’s a piano bar, it’s a restaurant and it’s a lot of joy. Attempt the fish tacos, the pizza or any of the tapas plates. You’ll stay late into the night at Crimson Sky Tapas.

The “cellar” feel of Wrecking Bar is a dead giveaway that this is a excellent place for social drinking. But don’t let that make you think the food is just mediocre. Everything from the pickled veggies to the pimento cheese is delicious. The corn puffs go down effortless and the choices when it comes to craft beer are almost endless. This place is an underrated singles’ hangout as it is always packed. Friendly people, a superb ambiance and a well thought-out menu will bring the singles out to mix up.

Condesa Coffee is a combination coffee house and wine bar that is located right in the heart of Atlanta. During the day, it’s a casual place to sit and love a cup of coffee. And at night, it turns into a wine bar and it’s a fine place to meet youthful to middle-aged professional singles without all of the noise and pressure of being at a bar or nightclub. Make note, everything is good at Condesa. When you very first inject, it may have that pretentious feel, but with a hot cup of coffee or a sleek glass of wine, you will quickly warm up to what Condesa is all about.
