Oh The Independent

Back in 91 when I first stepped into Duprees Tavern, now known as the Independent, I was given the boot for being underage. It was a weekend afternoon where a few friends of mine were waiting on Total Recall to start downstairs at the theater.\r \r A couple years later, a buddy of mine took me back to Duprees to play some pool. It was a great atmosphere then. The bartender Sonya James, John and Richard Dupree be... view more

My favorite bar

This is my go-to bar. My friends that I go with are a mix of drinkers and non-drinkers, and we all get great service. The Indy has a friendly staff that usually has my 420 ready for me by the time I get to the bar, and they've got great trivia several nights a week. There are plenty of board games, including the mighty Uno, and an old SNES system. If I'm alone, it's usually not long before I can strike up a conversat... view more

My favorite spot in town

I went into the Independent for the first time 5 years ago when I moved to midtown to join a pool league and meet people. I've met some wonderful people over the years and the bartenders (they all take turns making rounds at the tables for drink orders) have always been friendly and checked on me and my friends no matter where we moved to in the bar. This was one of the only bars that carried my favorite liqueur (Lic... view more

Best Pool Hall in town!

I`ve been coming to this bar 21 years and not once had bad service. The staff makes you feel like family. Even if you don`t know people in Atlanta, it`s a great place to join a pool or dart league to find some great friends fast. I love all the board game too! The trivia on Tues. Wed. and Thurs. are a lot of fun also.

The Nuts

Great staff, great crowd, best free poker tournament in Atlanta, darts, pool tournaments, trivia, crack machines, uno. The line was long to kick some pitcher in his frutos secos.

Great place for a beer and poker

I've been going to the Indy for about 5 years, and the barstaff is very nice. Since I started to play poker there, they've known my name, as well as everyone elses around me. Decent beer selection, and a great liquor selection! They always have a beer special of the day, and always have the newest Sweetwater.

Awful Service, high prices for beer, another lame Midtown excuse for a bar.

This bar defines the word awful. The servers tend to disappear on you, so you basically have to walk up to the bar area, where the bartenders also ignore you for a few minutes, and ask to be checked out. This place also has decided, as every other Midtown bar has done, to raise their beer prices. They do not have a way to justify this, but they have decided to do so. I would like to ask all Midtown residents that the... view more
