      Very Cliquish
      My husband and I are new to Atlanta and looking for a regular place to go. We spent a long very smokey evening at Felix's where no one but the bartenders spoke to us. Everyone else stuck to their cliques and avoided us. Karaoke began several hours beyond the announced start time and was dominated by several people who arrived just in time to participate. The drinks were weak. (I usually get a buzz by the time I finish one drink. After several drinks at Felix's, I was still clear headed.) Will we go back? Probably not ... certainly not without our own clique in tow.

      OK, OK I know that "fabulous" is just too Gay! However, in this case it truly fits. This past Saturday (February 6, 2010) a friend of mine that likes to sing karaoke, dragged me along kicking and screaming to Felix's. We got there about an hour and a half before the starting time of 10 PM, just to make sure we had a seat at the bar, and for him to get up the necessary courage for his performance. During the pre-karaoke time frame, we had a chance to visit with the bartenders that were very friendly and personable, and to try their "Bowl" drinks. (Specialty drinks ordered off a menu, served in a huge bowl shaped glass, presented with a paper umbrella - again too gay! LOL) The drinks were very tasty, and a good value. I had the Peach Daiquiri - YUM! Now to get down to what made the night so fantastic. The cast from the play "RENT" that is opening at the Kudzo Theater running Feb 19th - March 21st, stopped in after rehearsal for karaoke. WOW! They did songs from the play, plus a good deal of miscellaneous karaoke to boot! Everyone of them were just as bubbly as they were talented (which made them more bubbly than a freshly poured glass of champagne). Their enthusiasm tickled your senses just as much as that glass of champagne, and by the end of the night you were just as intoxicated by them, as drinking a case by yourself. Go see the play! They are great! In addition there was a man, whose name I did not get, that used to be a back up singer for Bette Middler, that put anyone I have ever heard on American Idol to shame. They guy who runs the karaoke also had a beautiful voice and was very personable. Apparently he attracts some very good talent. The brave souls that had the courage to offer up their talents against this unprecedented competition are to be congratulated, and surprisingly rose to the challenge. The crowd was a very eclectic group of mixed ages, genders, and personalities that all blended well together. Even though I was undoubtedly one of the oldest persons there, they made me feel a part of the crowd and very accepted. All in all, it was one of my most pleasurable nights out ever! Thanks to all the staff at Felix's for a job well done, and to all the singers who made it so enjoyable.

      Nothing fancy, but a nice bar with friendly customers and nice bartenders.

      Neighborhood bar.
      Neighborhood bar. Lots of locals (and gossip!). Nice staff and strong drinks! Sort of a gay 'Cheers". Fun karaoke (and I don't like karaoke) on Thursdays and Saturdays. Cheap martinis on Tuesdays.

      Cute and welcoming
      My friends and I went to Felix's after a disappointing drink at Burkhart's across the parking lot (see review). What a difference! Felix's was small and light, with a pool table, nice bar that takes up half the space, and some high-top tables for sitting with friends. The cute bartender greeted us from behind the bar as we came in. The drinks were great: 2 of us ordered from the new "Fishbowl" menu and were not disappointed. One of the locals chatted with us and brought us some Chex Mix to munch on, and even though we drank a bit, the tab was very reasonable. Give it a try!

      Trailer Trash?
      That is where you are wrong my friend. This is a neighborhood bar. The crowd lives in the surrounding neighborhoods where you cant touch a home for under 500K. Trailer trash couldn't afford to live there. I think perhaps you are one of those snotty little twinks that spends their whole paycheck on a pair of jeans and live in a 2 bedroom apartment with 6 friends! Then you have the audacity to think you are fabulous? LOL To be honest Felix's is one of the few bars in the city where there are no fakes. It's time you took your petulance down the street to one of the other fake bars and throw your attitude around there. I for one (but I'm sure everyone else would agree) don't want nor do we need your type around. You serve no purpose to begin with. Thanks again for visiting our quaint establishment but, thank you more for leaving. I wonder how you know what constitutes "trailer trash" did you have a lot # included in your address while growing up? I bet you did!!!!!!!!!

      Not a very nice clientele
      I walked into this place and it was definitely full of ugly trailer trash type trolls, I had one drink, then turned around and walked out the door. Trashy atmosphere in both its clientele and in its decor.

      WOW, Corey makes you feel welcome and invited. There is a local feel to this place but at the same time you want to be local when you are there. You want to be part of this croud and you always feel at home. I love this place.

      Gem in the City
      Went into Felix's and had an amazing time with a great group of friends. The clientele were friendly. The bartender was very friendly, not to mention sexy as all get out. Loved his tattoo down the middle of his arm... What a hottie.

      My favorite Atlanta bar
      Unpretentious atmosphere with friendly bartenders and clientele. I've always had great drinks and a great time here. Folks are willing to talk to you, and you just never know what might go on in there! Fun music, tasty & fresh bar snacks, and people just being themselves.
