We are located at 79 Poplar St NW in Downtown Atlanta, right down the street from ALL of Atlanta’s Best Venues: We are close to the Tabernacle, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Philips Arena, the Masquerade, Georgia World Congress Center, and the Fox Theatre. Look for the “Sidebar” sign right around the corner from the Georgia State University School Of Music and Rialto Center for the Arts building at the corner of Poplar and Forsyth. There are many parking garages and ample metered parking available near Sidebar and all over Downtown, but we strongly suggest you don’t drive yourself at all if you intend to drink. Sidebar and all of Downtown is a convenient location to use services like Uber, Lyft, Taxi, and MARTA, which is our recommended mode of transportation if you aren’t already in Downtown.
Here are walking directions from some of our favorite venues and landmarks in Downtown:
From THE TABERNACLE (near CENTENNIAL OLYMPIC PARK, CNN CENTER, etc)

From WOODRUFF PARK (near THE MASQUERADE)
