I've been going to the Tabernacle to see shows ever since they converted this space for the Olympics (it was a House of Blues back then). It's a great place to see a concert and boy is it LOUD! I know I'm getting older, but every time I go there I tell myself I need to bring earplugs next time. I love the SRO floor space. Just watch out for the barely marked "aisles" (rubber runners on the floor). Security tries to keep them open and to control crowds will often not let you back near the stage if you have to leave for a drink. The first balcony is great too - more mellow but close to the action. The upper balcony is not bad either but the sound isn't nearly as good and this seems to be the loudest part of the venue. Plus you really are way up high. Don't miss out on a chance to see a concert at this converted Baptist tabernacle in downtown and be sure to drop by Sidebar before or after - it's just a few blocks away.

I drove from Memphis, TN to enjoy a concert at the Tabernacle and I'm glad I did. This place is off the chain! \r <br>\r <br>The staff was really nice and the concert was the best. I had so much fun and a little too much to drink! I can't wait until the next time they have something else so I can come back to visit.

Formerly the Baptist Tabernacle of Atlanta, this old-school, urban gothic church held revivals of a different ilk. The massive pipes of the organ still remain, as do the two balconies, though the pulpit is now a stage hosting a diverse lineup of national touring acts. Kitchy paintings, old fixtures and tile, and the massive chandelier provide the perfect scene for bands to come out and wail. When a band really gets rockin, you can feel the room shake and the balcony dip as people jump around. The balconies are seated and the floor level is standing only with bars flanking. The only downside is the staff (ushers, security, bartenders) who are consistently rude. Your best bet is to cruise around for parking, though most lots will cost the same.

i drove down from nashville to see the band HIM. we don't have a venue to compare to tabernacle - and they call nashville ""music city"". that's a laugh! i loved tabernacle - the sound was awesome and there isn't a bad seat (or standing room) in the house. they have it all. an added plus was that the staff was actually very courteous and i'm all about manners and good service. all in all, a well run place. definitely worth the drive... oh yeah, and the band was AWESOME!

Tabernacle is a great place to see bands because the sound is good downstairs & you can get up close to the stage. Bars are inside the staging area so you don't have to leave. There are also spots to hang out & chill. There are bathrooms downstairs & upstairs.
