Eastside's polished look contrasts with its more bohemian East Atlanta neighbors. Dark walls and carpeting ease the sharpness of the slick downstairs bar. Upstairs, warm red tones dominate the walls and furniture. The adjacent DJ booth and dim lighting encourages dancing on the upper level, while the main floor fills up with young singles and cute couples. You'll find Midtowners lounging in abundance, with local folks supporting the indie film nights. While Eastside offers several draught and bottled beers, cocktails better reflect the cool nature of the place.
Young hipsters congregate here for an upscale drinking atmosphere without the attitudes of similar uptown bars. Though not as crowded as in its Fountainhead days, Eastside Lounge still delivers well-mixed drinks and offers diverse weekly nights. Monday's Brit pop and Tuesday's punk rock (mixing all things punk and new wave) break up the standard weekend DJ format.
