The Beer Mug, uprooted from Brookwood, this Buckhead landmark has relocated to 857 Collier Road, (404) 351-3795
The Beer Mug, which opened on Peachtree Road in 1968, was one of the first sports bars in Atlanta and is considered a landmark drinking institution by many. The building in which it was located was designed by architect Neel Reid as a group of elegant storefronts called the Hunter Perry Adair Stores. Now the site is occupied by the Brookwood Shopping Development. The club relocated in 1999 to its current home at 857 Collier Road near the intersection of I-75 and Howell Mill Road.

Buckhead Pool Hall, 30 Irby Avenue. For more than 50 years, the pool hall has been a storied hangout for students, professionals, cabbies, police and politicians. Opened in 1946 by James Lunsford, later owned by Gene Loudermilk and now by Mike Dowdle, it is the oldest bar in Buckhead. One of the most popular commercials in Europe for Levi's jeans was shot there, as were parts of a video on baseball legend Hank Aaron and numerous music videos. Minnesota Fats, one of the best pool players who ever lived, played there in 1957.
