Went to see the Zombies here for their 50th anniversary of Odyssey and Oracle tour. The venue is recently renovated. The acoustics are outstanding, We were lucky to have bought tickets for reserved seats, otherwise it is SRO. The bar service is excellent, with a very large selection. We see a lot of concerts in small venues and this one... More

The newly renovated Variety Playhouse is my favorite place in Atlanta to see and hear live music. Saw The Zombies there last night and it It sounded great. I have always liked how the floor slopes toward the stage giving everyone a good view. They kept the concession stand line moving so the wait wasn't bad at all. Looking forward... More

We went to see the Southern Soul Assembly on March 1,2017. The atmosphere of the Variety Playhouse was perfect and the drinks were reasonable. Absolutely the BEST acoustics we've ever heard! We will be returning! Superb experience!

They've done a nice job with the second floor since the last time. Acoustics were very good. Staff was very nice. The bar too had a nice selection. I recommend seeing shows there and recommend parking close to the venue if not comfortable with dicey after dark areas of the city.

8 of us attended the Delbert McClinton concert January 28. We had our tickets in advance and got in line at 6 PM for the 8 PM show. Doors were opened at 7 PM and we found excellent seats up close and in the middle of 2 rows. The bar had a good selection of drinks and plenty of bartenders.... More

I just recently saw Howard jones here and let me tell you. I was so surprised at the quality of sound in this place. It's not a huge venue. And the beer prices were not outrageous. Can't wait to see another concert here !

This venue was amazing! It is than I imagined, but it has plenty of seating downstairs and standing room both upstairs and downstairs. They have a great bar selection and the plenty of bathrooms.

A big fan of Variety Playhouse, and particularly sitting upstairs, I was excited to see Robert Cray and the newly renovated venue. Another patron accurately describes the significant design flaw in the newly installed balcony. There is not enough pitch to see the stage or over those sitting in front of you. In addition, they built a fence across the... More

Recently saw Robert Cray and Elliot Holden in a wonderfully remodeled space. Now you can see the stage when seated in the front row even when there are tons of folks standing in front of you. They did a nice job with it, for sure.
