Bookmark and Share I heard Sco play there a number of years ago..not sure if things have changed since, but the atmosphere was pretty laid back (the Playhouse is in Little Five Points, which is slightly akin to the Village in NYC). You could buy beers/drinks in the back of the hall, and the patrons were a little noisy, and it sometimes got a little distracting. One memory I have was going upstairs to use the restroom, and some drunk guy was falling all over himself. Great show though, really liked it, and so did the crowd! There are lots of Hotels nearby. I always like to stay at Embassy Suites wherever I am (not all that close in this case, but not unreasonably distant), because they have a happy hour and a great free breakfast. There’s an Embassy Suites at Lenox Square, which puts you near a MARTA Station, decent shopping, and Buckhead (restaurants, nightlife) just a few blocks away.
