It can be all things to almost all people. It’s a rock and folk showcase, a jazz venue, a country bar, an acoustic club, a jam-band freak-out headquarters and a movie theater. You name it and the VARIETY PLAYHOUSE has probably been there, done that and sold the T-shirt in the lobby. The coolmore...
It can be all things to almost all people. It’s a rock and folk showcase, a jazz venue, a country bar, an acoustic club, a jam-band freak-out headquarters and a movie theater. You name it and the VARIETY PLAYHOUSE has probably been there, done that and sold the T-shirt in the lobby. The cool art deco building on Euclid Avenue with the classic marquee sits like a benevolent Buddha at the corner of Little Five Points, welcoming all who enter. Also, the Variety’s website is informative and, like the place itself, friendly and easy to navigate. less...

You can get to the VARIETY PLAYHOUSE early and find a comfortable seat where you can see, or you can get there late and join the standing-room-only crowd right against the stage. Either way, the sound is consistently clear, the bar has decent beer on tap at fair prices, and management pushes smokers out in the alley where they belong. You can even dodge the Ticketmaster charges and buy direct from the box office Monday through Friday, noon-6 p.m. It doesn’t get better, only bigger — and, as they say, size isn’t everything. less...

Located in the pulsing heart of boho mecca Little Five Points, indie-owned and -operated VARIETY PLAYHOUSE is a relaxed arena of hipness. Once a theater for cult films, the thriving venue is a comfortable haven for performances from a dizzying array of genres: Rock, soul, country, jazz, world and everything in between is regularly featured on the schedule. Great acoustics and intimate seating give the facility the vibe of being the Eddie’s Attic of big rooms: a place where music fans come to listen. The list of artists who have performed on the hallowed hardwood stage includes P.J. Harvey, Diana Krall, Emmylou Harris, Siouxie Sioux and R.E.M. less...

As the most innovatively booked venue in town, the aptly named Variety presents an eclectic array of artists whose appeal falls in the commercial gap between smoky clubs and larger, less intimate halls. The sound is always terrific, the staff amiable, the beer list comparatively extensive, the seats cushy. The dance floor up front provides plenty of room to get yer ya-ya's out without being yelled at to sit down, and there's never a mosh pit. less...

As far as small venues go, Aisle 5 takes the cake. There's a certain magic the Little 5 Points club possesses, one that's slightly creepy while simultaneously comforting.

As far as small venues go, Aisle 5 takes the cake. There's a certain magic the Little 5 Points club possesses, one that's slightly creepy while simultaneously comforting. There's no telling what you're walking into at Aisle 5. Sometimes it's a local band and other days it's an EDM show. But one thing's for sure: You're in for a good time. Bartenders are quick and friendly, ticket prices are within range for us average folks, and though the crowd is a mixed bag, it's always full of good people. less...
