The Best Places To Eat & Drink In Little Five Points

The 14 Best Dive Bars In Atlanta image

The 14 Best Dive Bars In Atlanta

Little Five is the divey epicenter of ATL. Almost every bar in that hood could be classified as a dive, but Euclid Avenue Yacht Club is the quirkiest and one of the oldest. Their door says “membership not required,” but if it was, we’d absolutely pay the fee to belong to this dive bar staple in Little Five. The walls are stuffed with nautical-themed knickknacks (a giant shark, a bust of a mermaid) that look like they’ve been on the walls since the bar opened in the ’80s. After a few reliable beers, we’ll need one of their massive and messy burgers to keep our sea legs. Our favorite is the Backyard Burger with a spicy jalapeño ranch slaw dripping out the sides. Sure, there are plenty of places to get a burger and a brew in L5P, but Yacht Club's small space and nautical theme is our siren song for a wild night.

Euclid Avenue Yacht Club

Ratings and reviews, location and contact.

We had tickets for the "Variety Playhouse" later that evening (pretty much across the street) and thought we were early (5:30pm) when we walked into the Yacht Club for a drink and a bite to eat. We were mistaken. Luckily nobody sat at the reading... table upfront, near the window, so we, the 4 of us, took over one end of the table. Soon we were joined by a handful of locals trying to finish the days crossword in the newspaper. Was this ever a funny bunch. In the mean time an endless line of interesting characters past by on the other side of the window. Anyway, what I am trying to say is that this tavern is awfully cozy and right smack in the center of "little five points". It's very cozy, staff is wonderfully friendly and helpful in deterring drink and food. I had the Philly cheese and my wife the brisket. Both were excellent. By the time we left it was standing room only. We love this place!!!!!!!! More

The staff at this bar is top notch A+. From the management to the barback, everyone is so accommodating and friendly. Best bar in L5P by far.

Very good pub with a good selection of national beer!nice place, nice people and very good food choise!personaly i love the BBQ burrito associate to a iced stagional Pumpinkg beer!for sure i'll cooming back

Nice beer selection, friendly patrons, and a cool place to beat the Atlanta heat with a cold drink in hand. Half of the place is non-smoking, but no doors to separate the halves. Check it out if you are in the little 5 points area.... Note: Since Atlanta is not near any body of water that supports Yachts, it is not really a club per say. Just a funky name. More

A great selection of people in a compact and memorabilia filled bar that serves an interesting variety of beers and has a small and specialised selection of freshly made food . Full of eccentricity (in the nicest possible way). It looks very popular with five... point locals. Staff are friendly, nothing is too much trouble and you won't go thirsty! Its well worth the visit to five points to enjoy this gem in the evenings... More

Great spot in the heart of Little Five Points. Some people bring children in but I would not recommend it. One side can get pretty smoky. Beer prices are very reasonable and the food is actually really good. Get the tater tots! Perfect spot for... people watching...there's a large window often open to the street on nice days. And always something to see in L5P. Around the holidays, don't miss the gingerbread house contest - hilarious. More

Great people watching. Relaxed, friendly environment. Service was great. Had a few beers and some sliders before a show. Food was great and came out quickly. Highly recommend.

Surprising find during an impromptu visit to Little Five Points for a late Sunday lunch with our adult son. The brisket was tender and the Mac and cheese thick and creamy. Our son had the Mac Daddy burger, topped with Mac and cheese. Good selection... of beers on tap in a funky setting. Very reasonably priced. Recommended! More

You have to try the BBQ egg rolls, they are awesome. The staff was super friendly and atmosphere is great. It is in an interesting neighborhood. Make sure you pay for your parking at the meter.

Laid back and cozy, this is my favorite bar in Atlanta. Tucked into Little Five Points, this is clearly a locals haunt and hints at the many amazing times it has seen. A place to go grab some drinks and actual good unpretentious food, the... staff rocks. We enjoyed the food (quesadillas and Philly), the tots are supreme and the service was outstanding. A must go. If you drink with your pinky hoisted in the air or appreciate sterile spots with no character, steer clear - this is not for you. Otherwise, have a great time. More

Was getting the Atlanta tour from a local and guided to this place twice in one weekend. I can see why. The funky nautical vibe is not your average bar. It's way more pub than dive but never the less it's a cool scene for... drinks and heard the food is on the mark as well. My first hand experience was with a comfortable atmosphere, cold beers and lively conversation. This place rocks. Drinks are fairly priced, too. More

I love this place. Service, food, people watching at window seat. Amazing. Thanks again for a great meal and environment. Highly recommend!

I was visiting from out of town so I asked someone where the locals go and they recommended this place. The food was reasonably priced and the drinks were definitely not weak! The canned beer prices were pretty cheap for the tall boys. The atmosphere... was great as well. More

I met up with some Atlanta friends to see Patti Smith at the Variety Theater. Immediately after the show, a ton of people from the theater headed straight to the Yacht Club for late night drinks and food. Most of the people in the place... were locals, and it was hipster-funky crowd. The bar is not too big, but its not too small, either. There are large and small tables, a few bar height tables, and a dark, boozy, dive bar feel to it. It was like a college bar from the 1980's, with lots of different beers on tap. I had the veggie quesadilla, which was delicious, One of my friends ordered the sweet potato tater tots, and all she got was a plastic basket of less then 20 tots. Her food cost almost as much as mine, but I received 10x the amount of food, so order carefully. More

I was staying one night in the area (Poncey-Highland) and was overwhelmed by the restaurant choices along Ponce De Leon, N. Highland Ave and, of course, throughout LFP. It was a though decision but after some wandering about I decided this was the place for... dinner. What a great decision! The ambiance and decor was from another era; staff and regulars were laid back and the place appeared to be frozen in time--maybe the late 1960s or early 1970s. The sidewalk chalk board listing daily specials caught my eye; how could I go wrong with a dish called a Cincinnati Three Way? Best plate of pasta ever--down to the kitchy oyster cracker garnish! Incredibly helpful & chatty waitress recommended a local dark ale which was perfect! Learned a lot about the 'hood and my hotel; also picked up a great lodging tip for my next trip here. More

Euclid Avenue Yacht Club turns 30: “It’s kind of like Manuel’s on LSD”

euclid ave yacht club atlanta

Photograph courtesy of the Euclid Avenue Yacht Club

The Euclid Avenue Yacht Club just turned 30 years old, a milestone it will celebrate on May 28 by staying open until 1 a.m., one hour past its normal Sunday bed time. Manager Anna Bender says she’ll serve drink specials, including a $2 “customer appreciation shot” called The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea; the kitchen will make St. Louis-style ribs, “because they’ve got more meat on them”; and live performances from Wasted Potential Brass Band, Heather Luttrell, The Boohoo Ramblers, The Young Antiques, and The Dandyls will begin at 3 p.m.

“The neighborhood is still weird,” says owner Donald Hinamon, a.k.a. Hippie, paying Little Five Points a compliment. “There’s been this delicate balance of strangeness somehow, even though the gentrification of all the residential neighborhoods all around Little Five Points has progressed.”

“They leave us to our craziness.”

Hinamon opened the Yacht Club in a former antique jewelry store in 1987. After studying hospitality at Georgia State University, “it was time to cut my hair and get a job with a big hotel chain or do something else.” He’s run the Yacht Club ever since. Bender has worked there for 18 years. People—including the regulars—tend to stick around. There’s a set of stools at one end of the bar that’s been lovingly named The Bullshit Corner, the food and the drinks are better than they need to be, and the mix of stuffed marlins and skulls on the wall keep it weird. “It’s kind of like Manuel’s on LSD,” says Hinamon.

To show our appreciation for the Yacht Club, here are memories from some of its regulars:

Kevin Gillese, artistic director of Dad’s Garage Theatre Company : “When I first moved to Atlanta in 2010, I started dating a lady on my staff. It was a little bit gauche to be dating someone who’s working for you, so we kept it on the hush-hush. We would always hang out at the Yacht Club, but so would other people from work, so I would wait for her to go to the bathroom, and when she was leaving it, then I would go to the bathroom and steal a kiss. For a while, the only people who knew we were dating were the Yacht Club staff; Anna would call me the Secret Kisser. Now that lady, Amber Nash, and I are married. Anna came to the wedding.”

William “Woodie” Haywood, retired: “Recently a friend of ours passed away. At 64 years of age, Beverly White Pleasants was diagnosed with brain cancer and passed away four months later. She had no immediate family, but she had her Yacht Club family. So we had a memorial for her there. She loved Elvis, so we played his music, and we put up decorations and shared stories about Beverley. That’s one of the heartwarming stories from the Yacht Club; it’s a group of really caring people in the middle of an urban environment.”

Chantelle Rytter , founder of Krewe of the Grateful Gluttons and the BeltLine Lantern Parade : “I’m not sure I would still be in Atlanta if I hadn’t wandered into the Yacht Club. I moved to Atlanta from New Orleans in 1993 and made friends with people playing darts the first time I went to there. Those people have remained my friends for life. I kept Atlanta; I lost the husband. And the high point of my adult life was dancing on the bar of the Yacht Club to “We Are the Champions” the first year that we won the Halloween parade in 2003. I got up on the bar upon the invitation of the owner, which was great because you know you’re not going to get into trouble!”

Christian Green, bar manager at the Variety Playhouse : “Value for dollar, you’re not gonna find a better cocktail in Atlanta. Just show up and you’ll be treated like a regular—there’s on politics, no drama. It’s our neighborhood anchor.”

“the only Yacht Club in Atlanta”

The Yacht Club is one of Atlanta's best bars. Why? Simply because it reminds you of the traditional neighborhood bar that you'd find in Chicago or in the disappearing neighborhoods of Boston. Comfortable, friendly, and cheap. It's one of the few places in Little 5 Points to just go sit down and have a beer and a chat! Come and check it out! The Euclid Avenue Yacht Club, the only Yacht Club in Atlanta -hint: it's a bar in little five points.

About Our Rating Criteria

Official Site

euclid ave yacht club atlanta

As a reviewer of dive bars and writer of any sort, it’s important to understand personal biases that might come through in the objective documentation of a space. And I fully acknowledge a soft spot for dive bars in land-locked cities that take on some kind of ironic nautical naming convention. Where Minneapolis’ Northeast Yacht Club leads, Euclid Avenue Yacht Club in Atlanta follows, a dive bar that borders no water and to my knowledge houses no boats.

Euclid Avenue Yacht Club sits in the Little Five Points neighborhood of Atlanta, an ultra-cool confluence of, you guessed it, five roads, creating a weirdly proportioned burst of bars, restaurants and shops. Five Points is also home to a small concentration of Atlanta dive bars, nearby Star Community Bar serving as the spiritual neighbor to Euclid Avenue Yacht Club. Outside, the green awning can’t be missed and the small neon sign above the door tours above the Little Five Points area proclaiming life’s necessities: Bar. Beer. Food.

Wood-lined dive bars are no rare occurrence, but the deep brown color of the wood here, maybe perceptually enhanced by the name of the bar, feels a little less worn and a little more comforting.

Because the area is dense with drinking and dining options, there’s a chance that Euclid Avenue Yacht Club’s relatively simple exterior could cause it to be overlooked. The low awning covers up a little bit of window real estate, obscuring the neon beer signs hung inside. The light colored brick threatens to soak in some of the charm of the space, but stepping inside unleashes a warmth best compared to some kind of fancy captain’s bridge. Wood-lined dive bars are no rare occurrence, but the deep brown color of the wood here, maybe perceptually enhanced by the name of the bar, feels a little less worn and a little more comforting.

Of course, the marlin above the booths that line one wall of the space certainly aids in the Atlanta dive bar’s nautical appeal. Underneath the fish, a selection of largely black and white photos dot the rich, patterned wall, a surface that looks like a wall you’d fine on opposite side of a really, really long table in a very fancy dining room. A mixture of vintage photos, recent shots, additional mounted fish and even an animal skull or two create a pretty diverse set of visual stimuli. Short lamps sit on each of the dive bar’s built-in booths, no small addition to the overall ambiance of the space.

Not to be outdone, the space behind the bar rivals the visual appeal of its corresponding wall, the highlight a wooden sign above the bar inscribed “Welcome Aboard.” You’ll find a wide ranging assortment of signs and vintage souvenirs among the mirrored liquor bottle display, soft lights of twisted glass hanging to provide, yes, another shot of ambiance. The short bar gives way to a kitchen framed in deep red tile in keeping with the color palette of Euclid Avenue Yacht Club.

In Atlanta tradition, a PBR sign or two can be found among the walls, but the nautical theme is alive and well in the mounted collection here.

A second room expands the space as well as the collection of fish, photos and vintage signs. Keep an eye out for the shark positioned just under a stained-glass lamp comprised of six perched birds aiming their gaze at the center fixture. In Atlanta tradition, a PBR sign or two can be found among the walls, but the nautical theme is alive and well in the mounted collection here, offering plenty to take in. A booth in front offers padded, horseshoe seating with prime view out onto the neighborhood that surrounds the dive bar, the best seating option for a group drinking occasion.

There’s a little bit of polish here, to be sure, making Euclid Avenue Yacht Club more of a warm neighborhood pub than a dusty, Prohibition-era dive bar. The presence of a weekly Bingo night is very much in keeping with the local, community vibe of the space, an exercise in dive bar nautical theming done right. In a particularly interesting part of Atlanta’s neighborhood fabric, Euclid Avenue Yacht Club provides the right mixture of warm features and mounted fish to stand out in a great way.

Porter Beer Bar reopens with a refreshed look, more beer and classics on the menu

More than two years after closing, Little Five Points institution Porter Beer Bar reopens Friday, May 10 with a new look and a menu that features both old favorites and new dishes.

The bar, located at 1156 Euclid Ave. NE, was purchased in 2022 by longtime Atlanta barman Manuel “Manny” Maloof, the grandson of the founder of Manuel’s Tavern , who currently operates Manny’s Grant Park and Euclid Avenue Yacht Club in Little Five Points.

Also on board as a partner and executive chef is EJ Hodgkinson, who spent more than four years working with Kevin Gillespie at Woodfire Grill, six years with Ford Fry Restaurants, where he served as executive chef at JCT Kitchen and King + Duke . Most recently, he served as the culinary director at Electric Hospitality, which includes concepts like Muchacho and Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall.

They purchased the bar from Molly Gunn and Nick Rutherford, who opened the Porter in 2008 . The pair met at Seeger’s in Buckhead , where Rutherford was a chef, and Gunn worked the front of the house. Over the years, the Porter earned two James Beard Foundation award nominations for its bar program and has been named to several national best bar lists.

Hodgkinson and Maloof spent the past couple of years updating the Porter building and reimagining the menu, though longtime patrons will very much recognize the reopened bar.

“One of the hardest things to learn, but also one of the most rewarding things to learn is, listen to your guests,” said Hodgkinson, who spent time crossover training in the kitchen with Rutherford and Gunn. “When Manny approached me about working with the Porter, he asked if I wanted to keep it as the Porter or do my own thing. I told him I’d have to be crazy to think that putting anything else in that building would go well. I’d be met with pitchforks and torches. It’s such an important place for so many people.”

The menu will continue to offer several longtime favorites including salt and vinegar popcorn, goat cheese fritters and fish and chips, but there’s still plenty of opportunity for Hodgkinson to put his own spin on the menu.

Guests will find new dishes including crispy hen of the woods mushrooms with French onion dip; grilled Toulouse sausage with butter roasted cabbage, dry cherries and mustard; mussels ‘n’ beer with chiles, lager, butter, garlic and grilled bread; and a salad of little gems and baby kale with goddess dressing, crunchy bread and grana padano cheese. There are also homages to dishes Hodgkinson enjoyed eating at the Porter when he was a customer, including a housemade Velveeta-style mac and cheese.

The menu will also feature several veggie-forward dishes with many different preparations, Hodgkinson’s nod to the wide selection of quality produce grown in Georgia.

Hodgkinson said he was inspired by restaurants he visited during his travels, from Balthazar in New York to Joe Beef in Montreal and True Laurel in San Francisco when developing the menu for Porter.

“I love eclectic, fun, funky very classically inspired cuisine, and to me, that’s a lot of what the Porter is. As wildly creative as the specials were, and the core menu lived up to this classic, nostalgic beer bar.”

Already known for its selection of beers, the bar added 18 more taps, for a total of 60, including engines for cask beers. The majority of the taps will be dedicated to Georgia-made beers, though there will also be representation from global and domestic breweries.

Ten direct draw tap lines were added to another space in the restaurant which will activate when the bar offers more expensive or rare beers or hosts one-off collaborations with beer makers.

The Porter will continue its extensive vintage beer program and will host special events in a beer cellar located on the interior of the dining area.

The building also received a face-lift, including changes made on the back end to improve efficiencies for the staff. Small changes guests might notice include a bar rail added to the front bar with a slight lip, new tables and booths, and more paintings featuring animals drinking beer to complement the art made by a former Porter employee that hung in the restaurant previously.

The bar’s old tables and booths were fashioned into a barrel-shaped ceiling that hangs over the front bar.

Also familiar to longtime patrons of the Porter will be the staff. Nearly every employee worked for the bar before it closed, some taking jobs at Maloof’s other bars while the Porter was being remodeled.

“Every decision we made wasn’t like, ‘Let’s change this just because,’” Hodgkinson said. “It was, how does this make sense for the guests and our staff. That was what informed any change that was made.”

Opening hours will be 5 p.m.-midnight Wednesdays-Sundays, with plans to add weekend brunch soon.

Hodgkinson said he hopes that he and Maloof have struck the right balance between maintaining the old spirit of the Porter, while introducing some of their own touches.

“The whole idea is to usher in the next evolution of the Porter,” Hodgkindson said. “A lot of people have a circuit of restaurants that they go to, and I think the Porter has always been one of those for so many people. This is a hub for people to share a beer, a conversation or a first date. Manny bought it because he didn’t want to see it going away. We’ve lost a lot of great restaurants in this town, and if the Porter was gone, that would be very sad.”

  2. Euclid Avenue Yacht Club Review

    June 20, 2023. Little Five is the divey epicenter of ATL. Almost every bar in that hood could be classified as a dive, but Euclid Avenue Yacht Club is the quirkiest and one of the oldest.
