This was our first time to see a concert at the Variety Playhouse. We weren't sure we wanted to fight Friday night traffic in ATL. We arrived by 5:00, which helped not only with the traffic, but with the potential parking issue as well. It was worth getting to the venue 2 hours early to be able to park right... More

I saw Patti Smith here in November 2015, and was so amazed at how intimate this venue was. For her "Conversation" show, there was plastic lawn chair seating where the standing room only area is usually located. There was not a bad seat in the house. Bathrooms were on the second floor, and they were clean. There is a cash... More

First time visit to Atlanta, and this place is my purpose of this visit. I heard this was old cinema turned into the theater / music venue. Best thing is friendly staff include security people. They really took good care of me, even I was total stranger. Entrance hall still has old cinema feeling, it made me feel nostalgic. I... More

Came here to see Jose Gonzalez for a first time visit. I'll definitely be returning, as this small venue adds a level of intimacy missing in many concerts nowadays. The center area has seating for those too lazy to stand, while the outside sections have tiered standing areas that allow for great views from anywhere. The drink bar is cash... More

I have been here for a number of different shows through the years. The venue is intimate and definitely had little five points local flavor. I highly recommend catching a show here while in town.

Attended a concert here and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. To avoid parking issues, I like to park at friends condos and take a taxi.

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
