Jezebel names Ten as Atlanta’s ‘Best Gay Bar’

Add this share

The annual Best of Atlanta issue is out, and so are many of its winners. The issue is heavy with gay-inclusion as it should be, but you may not always agree with which establishments topped the list.

Of all our gay Atlanta faves in Jezebel’s rundown of the hottest in food, fashion and fabulessness, the swanky gays at Ten Atlanta (top photo) snagging Best Gay Bar caught our attention the most. With all the choices, it’s probably hard to choose just one, but we get it. It’s easy to get lucky at Ten, and they’re always teeming with hot gay jocks. Ahem. For example.

Best Gay Bar: TEN Atlanta

While TEN moonlights as an upscale restaurant by day, this Midtown spot is a bumpin’ bar by night. Don’t miss ’90s night every Thursday. Plus, the man candy at this place puts the hot in Hotlanta. Midtown, @tenatlanta

Speaking of man-candy, another of our favorite places with an eye for fashionable hotties and hunks in trunks made Jezebel’s cut too.

Best Pilates Studio: Urban Body Studios

Work your way to rock-hard abs at this studio where Pilates classes are available in group or private sessions, and incorporate over 500 exercises. Virginia-Highland

Of course, we were down with almost all of the gay and gay-adjacent winners long before Jezebel caught the coattails of its gays. The mostly straight female readers also dole out the love for Highland Bakery, Steve Hightower Hair, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, and all the gay-lovin’ pet people – and gay ‘Real Housewives’ sidekicks – who can’t keep their paws out of Pet Set.

Join us at all the gay and gay-adjacent places you want, ladies! We’re happy to have you, and we’ll make more.
