Attended the Delbert McClinton concert recently at Variety Playhouse in the Little Five Points/Inman Park area of Atlanta. The venue couldn't have been better - comfortable seating, good acoustics, good beer/wine bar, helpful staff. Really enjoyed the concert but we travelled to ATL from out of town and had never been to the Little Five Points area. Parking is absolute... More

First visit to this venue was great! Variety Playhouse has the character of an older building, while still being clean and in great shape unlike some older establishments. Staff was friendly, beer reasonably priced, nice touch to have snacks available for purchase. Get there early for your pick of great seats. Move to the floor to get close to the... More

I attended all 3 shows of Railroad Earth on December 29-31, 2014. I really like this venue because they have a great mix of seating and dancing space. The sound is good and the staff is friendly and not overbearing or surly. Unfortunately, on the 1st night some jerk decided to tag the interior of the place, so security was... More

Great little venue. Cozy atmosphere. Serves beer, wine and soft drinks, limited snacks. Standing room in front of the stage. Get here early to choose the best seat for you.

This was a great venue, we saw Paolo Nutini in concert here. We were able to sit halfway back and get a great view of the stage even when people were standing in the area in front of the stage. Of course, when the main artist came on, everyone stood so it was impossible to see, but still great to... More

This was a great venue/auditorium/theater, whatever you like to call it. The sound was fantastic, best BOC show I've ever heard (they are my favorite band). The staff was most helpful, and none of their beer costs over 5 bucks. Not being gouged for a drink was a welcome surprise.

My husband and I recently saw a comedy show here. The show was great, if you have seats there is really not a bad one in the house except for maybe the "lawn chair" seats at the sides. They looked uncomfortable to me. We did not drive and took a cab from our downtown hotel, which is what I would... More

I've been going to concerts in Atlanta for the past 25 years but I never had the occasion to go to the Variety Playhouse before. When Blue Oyster Cult came to Atlanta for the first time that I can remember, I jumped on it. The venue was small, but it was easy to get a space on the floor in... More

This fantastic venue is located in an artsy part of town and is known for concerts of all genres being performed there. The best thing about this venue is that there isn't a bad seat in the facility. If you're lucky enough to see the right artist there, you can even dance on the floor directly in front of the... More

The venue has theater-style seating in the center of the lower floor and entire balcony, with tiered standing areas on the sides of the lower level. There is not a bad place to sit/stand for viewing the stage and the sound quality was quite good. If there is a musical or other performing act that you like appearing there, I... More
