Because not everyone wants roses, chocolate, and champagne
Valentine's Day — aka Black Tuesday for those who are single or not into the mushy, romantic celebrations — is here. Restaurants will be packed with couples batting their eyelashes and dining on overpriced prix fixe meals. If that thought is repulsive, perhaps a visit to one of Atlanta's fine dive bars is in order.
Atlanta's drinking scene has plenty of options where one can find a classic cocktail in a nice setting. But, those bars may be filled with couples celebrating on V-Day. These watering holes will be devoid of all things romance, and no one is going to ask about any flowers or chocolates.
The following 10 bars are mapped north to south and are not ranked. But, they're all great options for a casual drink any time of the year, not only on Valentine's Day. Don't see your favorite spot? Show it some love in the comments or shoot an email to the Eater Atlanta tipline.
