The next bar we will be looking at can be found in the heart of Atlanta. With non-stop hip-hop music this place is where you want to be. With overwhelmingly positive reviews Bulldogs is the place where you want to go. Unlike the aforementioned bar, Bulldogs does not also function as a restaurant, it is strictly a bar.
That means that there are no reservations and it is first come first serve. As of October 14th of 2021 masks are required for entry. But don’t let that keep you from having a good time. Bulldogs is also one of the most long-standing bars in Atlanta, Georgia seeing many others close down in its lifetime.
It has survived many difficulties in the past and it looks like they are also going to survive the COVID-19 Pandemic. Everyone is welcome at Bulldogs and people from various ethnicities and backgrounds have found a sense of community here. Like every other bar on this list, you will need to be over the age of 21 and show ID.
A very important thing to note is that you are not allowed to bring in bags, purses, or fanny packs to prevent drugs or weapons from entering the building so it’s best to leave those in the hotel and to only bring cash because of their cash-only policy.
The best part of Bulldogs is if you are part of the United States military you drink absolutely free. So after a long day of serving your country why not head to your favorite gay bar in Atlanta, Georgia.
