The small door on Moreland Avenue may not give it away, but this swinging joint is a prime hotspot on the local music scene. Featuring live bands every night, the Star is a longtime favorite for catching rising acts and great neighborhood groups. Wild and a little wacky, the dimly lit ambiance leans a bit toward the psychedelic. When the music is not blaring, the place tones down a bit, but remains one of the most interesting melting-pot watering holes in the city.

The Porter in Little Five Points is a small restaurant that does everything big. Burgers are served on over-sized plates heaped with garlic-and-cheese fries, and the beer selection is even more sizable. For extra style, each draft beer is served in its signature glass. The Porter doesn't rely on style alone: they emphasize quality beer paired with quality food. The restaurant looks small from the outside, but the long bar and back room with tables provides plenty of space for hungry (and thirsty) diners.

If you're not riveted to the live sports action, it's a good place for a light meal and lots of drinks.

Find this place by following the row of Harley-Davidsons along the curb. Popular with both bikers and locals, perhaps the hand-drawn sign in the window best expresses this establishment's laid-back attitude: Help wanted. No wimps. No bozos. Inquire within.

Barbecue features large on the menu and is reinforced by an admirable listing of sandwiches, burgers, and daily blue plate specials.
