Johnny’s Hideaway is somewhere you keep meaning to go to, but haven’t yet because, well, it’s in Buckhead. It’s far, and also has the kind of bar-scene reputation that might scare you away if you didn’t rush during college. Luckily, the bar leans more alumni reunion than frat party, with nightly live music and plenty of people looking to dance, which makes it a good option for a birthday or girls’ night out.
