This is such a cool venue, in such a cool neighborhood. If only parking were easier! I've been to this theater a few times now for various off-the-beaten-path shows. Every experience has been awesome. The theater itself is small (intimate) but every seat affords you a good view of the stage, and the acoustics are great, even in the back.... More

Don't miss seeing a concert at this venue. A true piece of history that is warm and inviting for its visitors. Exposed brick, cash bars, a beautiful balcony, and very clean bathrooms.

No parking probs cause we Uber'ed over and after, easy! The Variety was cool although the sound could have been a bit more crisp. Our seats were great and our neighbors were polite. Also the beer was cold and cheap and the bathrooms were clean with no lines and plenty of stalls.

Variety Playhouse has been around for a long time and is the venue for all kinds of acts: music, comedy, and more. As it is a rather small venue, if it is all seating (all general admission when we've been there), it would be hard to find a bad seat in the house. Regardless, we try to get there before... More

My husband and I came to Atlanta (from Orlando), for a Weepies concert. Amazing concert!! The lights were very good, not assigned seating, which was even better, and great for music to go around.

The place had great acoustics and Robert Cray Band was excellent. However, we did not get to see the show because of standing room patrons in front of us. I have a great sound system at home with equal acoustics so I could've saved a lot of money staying home in Durham, NC if listening was all we wanted. My... More

The first time I saw Jorma he was still a single pre-Airplane. Jorma & Jack are like fine wine they just keep getting better with time. But the venue is really outstanding. I'd seen acts at the Fox and found the acoustics and house PAs terrible at best. A ton of permit only parking around the place but if diligent... More

Great place to see a live band. The Variety provides excellent acoustics and views. Whenever my favorites come to Atlanta they always seem to play at the Variety.

I had been through Little Five Points before but never stopped because of the creepiness of the area. Never judge a book by its cover. Planned a girl's night out to see The Bangles and everything went great. Drove in about 5:00, found parking right away, two doors down from Variety Playhouse, paid $10. Walked around to some of the... More

Wonderful music concerts at very affordable prices. We have gone to multiple concerts here, including Yonder Mountain recently. However the traffic getting there, the challenging parking situation and the pan handlers make it a dreaded trip. Buying tickets thru ticket master can be a hassle and rip off. However, we will continue to go back
