This is a cool little place in the middle of Buckhead. The area is really safe, and on Thursday Nights it is College Night. I love going there on Thursday's because in that same block there are 2 or 3 other bars so we can mix it up depending on what kind of music I want to listen to, and also its close to my apartment to thats always good.

Certainly a good place to go if you are on a budget. their beer specials are good. I didn't quite like the fact that on a Saturday night it was a bit over crowded. However, if you are looking to have lots of drinks, play beer pong and be in a very college atmosphere, this is the place for you
I am from a small town in Virginia and compared to our local hangout Moondogs just blew us away! My friend moved to Atlanta about a year ago and is about to get married so all of her friends met in Buckhead to shop and have a Bachelorette party we could never forget! Moondogs is massive! It has two sides we were hanging out at . One was a big main bar where they had a juke box and the other was a dance floor with stage, lights, and even a pole in the corner! We partied and danced like we havn't in years and it was a night we won't forget! Can't wait to come back and visit.
These guys run a sweet no limit poker game! Every Tuesday and Thursday they have game running, and if you get there early enough,before the game starts like around 8, you get extra chips for buying drinks that you get to use in the game. Also, if you buy drinks not only do you get free chips but also get free chicken wings. So, let me put this together for you, the poker tournement is free to play, if you're drinking you get extra poker chips and free chicken wings! If you play well and get a little lucky you win Cash for first second and third place, $50, $30, and $20 in cash, not bar cash! The staff is firendly and they pour some big drinks. I'm new to the area and am so glad I found this place! Thanks and I will be back for more!
Don't get me wrong, I love this place. Still wish this bar the best. My girlfriend and I have been coming here for over 8 years. We have two happily married friends who met here. would still be coming here, and love hanging with the staff outside this venue, but it has forgooten what made Moondogs the destination spot. Just hate it when places sell out. It has more of a corporate feel now. Have been in the industry, and this was always a place for me and my coworkers to go and chill. Girlfriend and I were regulars, and friends with the staff and still are close with them. From the heavy smoke, to the hard core rap music (really, they play hard core rap here now), and the new poker format this place has lost its relaxed late night atmosphere. Long time favorite Turner, has moved on and been replaced as the pit boss for poker. And man has it suffered. What used to be a fun group of players is now replaced by hooligans and loiters. Had a great time with the few faces I recognized but could tell they were frustrated with the seedy element now at the tables. An elderly woman, who the table recognized as a regular bother, kept miss dealing and spilled her drink all over my lap and the cards multiple times. Huge pain to us and the table. Still hang with the old regulars, who now frequent irby ave., and they moved on from what was once a great spot to chill and play cards. What happened to a dress code here? Was once unable to enter with my hat on side ways. Now I find at my table hoods, and sun glasses. Really? It is free poker. We are here to mingle and have a good time. Love the extra poker chip idea they have installed. Miss the old regular players who no longer want to deal with the scum bags that occupy the tables now. Understand their frustration. the smoke level is intolerable here. Quit smoking 4 yrs ago but you would never know that by the odor I keep after leaving this place. My girlfriend and I are now in our late twenties and what used to be a fun spirited dance floor is now filled with gansta rap and she and her friends hate it now. Would rather deal with the crowd at Red Door, 5P then get dragged on to this meat party. Who listens to this ridiculous crap. Not college students, or the regulars. Have a bunch of wanta bs on the stage standing around eyeing all the girls. Cant even get to the bar with these loiters hanging around not even dancing. What is this Bar Atlanta? Worked out so well for that place. Prefer my girl to stay off the dance side and not get rubbed up on by these shady individuals. Miss this place and the staff, but lack of dress code, aided by the frequent riff raff leave me to continue to miss this place. It pains me to give it only three stars, but also it pains me even more with the forgotten chill factor and hangout this was. Table 3 no longer.
My girls and I had a ladies night out last night and Moondogs gave us a night to remember. The bartenders Mac and Andy treated us so well it was like we had known them for years. It isn't every night out that a bartender is nice, funny, and can make a mean drink. Between the two of them we tried out about four different red bull bombs that were better than any jager bomb I'd ever had. Once we were ready we went over to the dance floor and had so much fun our faces hurt from smiling. Can't wait for the next girls night out!
