A touch of leather
The leather room's dress code includes boots, vest, harness, jacket, pants, and chaps. Things get frisky in the dark back room.

      Very Exciting Fun!
      This was the first bar my partner and I visited during our vacation. The bartender was very quick to take our order, the patrons were VERY friendly, struck up conversations and some VERY hot guys there! Would love to go back again....and again!!!

      Oh what a night!
      Visited Atlanta over Veterans' Day weekend and dropped in at Heretic around 2AM Saturday (after partying somewhere else). Not too crowded, but still good looking guys. Walked all over the place (nice layout), and ended up at the pool table room, where it was dark and busy. Serviced two, young guys; played with the latter to completion. Left with a smile on my face. Best bar in Atlanta for late night fun; will definitely return.

      Very down to earth, authentic bar... not leather at all.
      This bar has a lot of character, bringing together people of all ages, featuring bars, lounges, and line dancing, watching cowboys dance is so hot, and at times romantic, especially when you saw the couples together, lesbian and gays, young and old, very different atmosphere, wish we had a similar place back home. Oh and contrary to the general description here, I did not see any leather scene, no shirtless guys, so I do not know why it says that on here, this was all cowboy, OMG, some of them boys with that hat, so handsome, :-)

      Great bartender
      Was visiting Atlanta last night and was looking for a cool bar. Went into heretic and bartender was so so nice. Explained to us it was last call and went out of his way to give us other options for the night. Even though I didn't stay at Heretic, I will be bak there! This guy was super nice! Great southern hospitality!

    • Definitely they are going down
      went there again last night and there was nobody there at 1 am. I wonder if they are broke, going out of the business or something.

      Nice place
      Out of all the clubs and Bars i visited this one was the best. The music was great and the place was a good mix with different races. Also there is a Dark which i love just going in and seeing what takes place there. Cannot do anything in dark rooms as not my style but some guys did got lucky. I think the entrance was US5 and there is no parking fee, not sure what the drinks cost as my friend paid. All in all its a cool place and u just might get lucky in the darkroom so check it out. hey also have a man made beach out front, which is cool.

      Rude First Impression
      Atlanta is a great, friendly city where me and my partner always feel welcomed. However, the front door staff (biological woman specifically) at the Heretic this past Sunday evening greeted us with a rude attitude. Hey - I don't expect a red carpet to be rolled out for me but I do expect, at a minimum, a 'thank you' or 'have fun tonight' in exchange for my dollars to patronize an establishment. And I am old enough to know that most Heretic patrons may not even care how they are treated. Bartenders at least said "thanks' when charging $5 for small cocktail. My advice to Heretic Mgt - much of your 'competition' doesn't even charge a cover. If you are taking people's hard earned money, EARN it! Dont assume you deserve it just for opening your doors.

      The Worst of Gay Scene
      The Heretic attracts a mixed crowd, some young, fresh, attractive faces. Hope they find some place else to hang out. Most of the crowd is suffering from gay burn-out: having cruised a little too long, sexualized a little too much, and settled for too little, there's not much in the way of evolved, self-actualized gay men to offer the discerning shopper. There is a big range of attractiveness and physique here, but it's all on the most callow level--pack your pocket rocket but check your humanity at the door.

      Good bar...
      The staff was very friendly to a newcomer. The bartender bought me shots and the coat check guy kept me company as one guy after another flirted with me.I went three times during my stay and it was always a late crowd, after 10:30pm. I did not see any crusising going on in the back hallway, sad to say, as I was looking for it. There is a cover at 10pm on the weekends and the bar is closed Sundays. Worth checking out for sure, not as pretentious a clientele as other Atlanta bars and it's close to the sex clubs on Faulkner.
