Blake’s stirs up good trouble any given Saturday

Add this share

After a long workweek, gay Atlanta knows that a trip to Midtown will cure what ails ya. From afternoon cocktails right through to a favorite drag showcase, many a Saturday has been rendered complete with a trip to Blake’s on the Park.

Gays and gals gathering for a post-work drink most nights, but things readlly get going on Fridays. Then as the night darkens and the crowd thickens, the stars come out for Glitter Bomb with Edie Cheezburger at the helm.

In a different mood? No worries. A loungey vibe is just a staircase away with Second Level Beats rocking the upstairs bar.
