New Order is Atlanta's oldest gay bar and is often the butt of jokes like "wrinkle room" and "heavens entry gate" etc. but those perceptions are a bit misleading. It's one of few bars in Atlanta where you can actually have a conversation, as the music is low key and relaxing. Drinks are strong and reasonably priced, and the age demographic I have observed in this place isnt much different from Burkharts, Blakes or Amsterdam. Yes, there are younger people who go there, but its mostly 30s-50s guys. Best of all, the location behind Ansley Mall is one of the safest areas in town and parking in plentiful.
Don't let the pre-conceived stereotype keep you away from this gem. It is a helluva nice bar.
Pros: Friendly people, Free Popcorn, Fireplace, Nice music, Strong Drinks
Cons: 70s decor is a bit tired but the place is clean.
