      Neve experienced gridlock in a bar before
      I went there a few times with a couple of friends, and each time, it was so crowded you could barely move. You can't go anywhere without feeling like a sardine, a trip to the bar just to order a drink could take up to ten minutes, and God help you if you have to go to the bathroom. That aside, it's a nice place, with some great looking guys. Just brace yourself if you go on a weekend.

      Friendly Crowd
      Was approached by a few patrons and made to feel welcomed even by types that I usually don't get that from. This is easily the friendliest bar in Atlanta.

      Hipster bar in the alternative part of town
      It is part video bar. Part neighborhood bar. Part hipster bar. Small bar in a cool part of town. It is probably not a place to hit if you are from out of town because it s off the beaten path, but its kakaoke night is the most fun. Since the bar is small, when it gets packed.. watch out for wondering hands ;-). If there is a downside, it is a very smoke bar ( but it is Atlanta, and we don't have the guts yet to ban it )

      hole in the wall, but in the best kind of way
      Always a lot of fun, theme nights vary during the week. Great music and dancing on Fri and Sat. The Boozy Cougar (upstairs) is a little less crowded and you can watch the shenanigans below. Very varied crowd - hipsters, preps, daddies, twinks. No pretense, which is very refreshing for a gay bar. Come as you are! My favorite bar in the ATL.

      The Biggest Closets
      The place is GREAt but it like walking into a walk in Closet. It too small to realy meet any one. But in that area of town there is not much to do.

      Best music!
      if u wanna hear tired disco or new country, this is not the place for you. For Lady Gaga, Robyn, and MIA, it's Mary's all the way!

      Mary's is one of my favorites!
      There are a few good gay bars outside the "gay-vortex" known as Midtown, and Mary's is one of these. A great hole-in-the-wall neighborhood stop, Mary's is known for it's karaoke night as well as a bar that's usually packed with an array of alterna-punk guys, hotties sporting tattoos, and well groomed Gucci-clad boys. And when we say packed, we mean packed! The Logo channel says that Mary’s is the Best Gay Bar in America and Out magazine calls Mary’s one of the Top 50 Gay Bars In The World. <p> Mary's--which occupies a former notions shop--is long and narrow and lined on one side by a big bar. Upstairs you'll find a nice place to stand and watch the crowd below or play some pool. In the back of the bar and also on the porch there's some good conversational seating. Don't worry about wearing the latest couture, since attitude is the only thing missing at Mary's. <p> <b>Insider Tip:</b> For music lovers, Mary's DJ plays great Brit-pop, alterna-punk, and American pop mixed with 80's favorites.

      Place is to small for the crowe it gets
      Nice Bar just to small. A lot of Gen X bears there. And LOTS of woman too. A few straight guys there with some of the woman there. Your not going to belive this there was two guys dress in drag in woman clohes from like the 50's. I could not belived that someone whould do drag in this day and age.

      No Attitude
      Lots of fun, great mix of people. You'll find old, young, men, women, straight, bi and gay. Bartenders are very nice and make great drinks. No cover, reasonable prices. Fridays feature great music from the 80s. 90s or current. Saturday 'Maryoke' is a lot of fun when its crowded as everyone sings along. Eat, drink and be MARY!
