Too smoky - even the doorman / bouncer smokes a huge cigar! now get real, a cigar? don't you know how obnoxious a cigar is!?! there's enough cigerette smoking as it is. i love the star bar's selection of bands, the location, the disco ball - it's a great spot. just get your employees to show a little more respect to the patrons.

If asked to give a definition of a rock and roll club, simply draw a map to this Little 5 den of iniquity known as The Star Bar. Loud as Hell, the room full of tattooed boozed up hipsters, motorcycle jacket-donning punks, and too-tight jean wearing musicians mingle together in harmony slurping down The Champagne of Beers and PBRs like it's going out of style. Hosting monthly sell out showcases like Pop Death Squad's aptly named ""Big Trouble in Little Five Points, Star Bar packs in the patrons 'til the wee hours. And folks, if the vintage photo booth is a-rockin', you just may be invited to come 'a knockin'.

This bar kinda feels like corporate Buckhead clashing with East Atlanta. You have to pay a cover charge to get in. This means, even is you want to just grab a drink, you have to pay between 5 - 15 dollars just to get in. A lot of the time the bar seems to be packed with a scenester crowd too. The bar is small which is nice but the few times that I have seen it packed, it gets really crowded. I do like some of the small acts that go through (i.e., Dead Confederates).

some overly aggressive posers who think they are southern or punk like to grace this establishment, but for the most part one can have a good time. I prefer the downstairs bar... the bartenders down there seem a little less rude and annoyed. We all know Little Five Points can be selective with it's patrons, but we do what we can. Do not enter if you are Britney Spears. The music and live performances are great and check out the Elvis vault if you are a fan of the King. If you ain't a fan of the King, don't let anyone at the bar know it! Because in this bar, it is rockabilly heaven where ole swivvle hips is revered and a good shot of whisky is sure to cure any sour yankee attitude.

Unique place,great music sometimes, seedy atmosphere (which is fine for this type of place). In a great neighborhood. Reasonable cover charge, reasonably priced drinks.
Filthy dirty place that smells like upchuck, a staff that seems to not care if you ever come back, poor service from the staff all around. Worth going to if a good band is scheduled, not a place I'd like to hang out on a regular basis.

I know bars are not known for their friendliness but this just seems kinda silly. I called to see pricing on a show and they were just abnormaly rude.(called on an off hour) Not a great way to bring in business, plus when we checked further on pricing they told is it was more than we were told on another web site. Needless to say by that point didnt even end up going. Wish people would get overthemselves and just give service with a smile.

The Star Bar has a funny way of making me feel like I'm at home. Maybe it's because I've seen sooo many shows here, or maybe it's the very friendly staff that's more than happy to pass me an ice cold PBR...Bottom line is that this is a place where anyone can feel comfortable and it's a *great* spot to see live music.
