Every day, I pass Northside Tavern. Until recently, I didn’t think much of the small bar nestled on the corner of Howell Mill Road and Brady Avenue. However, I’m now enlightened about the dive bar.
The bar, built in the 1940s as a neighborhood grocery store, eventually evolved into a blues bar. Named as one of the Best Dive Bars in Atlanta, this hole-in-the-wall has been a stage for movies such as Fast & Furious 8 and Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.
If you’re looking for cheap drinks, live music, and great Atlanta history, this is your place.
