Absolutely. There's no reason whatsoever for folks to be going there. Why go somewhere where nothing's happening? Much better just to leave that part of town alone.

Well this just isn't true. Buckhead has the biggest bar scene in the city still. How old are you guys....?

You got to be kidding me. I guess because Buckhead has 1/3 of the city's land compared to Midtown small 2 square mile area, then maybe, but Midtown has the most concentrated bars in a small area so bar hopping becomes much easier. You can actually WALK between bars...you don't have to drive. Crescent Ave. was packed last night when I went. Where is this same experience in Buckhead?

Along East Andrews Drive and Paces Ferry Place.

The bar scene is still there, it just moved to the other side of Peachtree. These little pubs have always been there, but they seem a lot more crowded now than they used to be. And of course, the main East Andrews is still hopping....if that's your scene.

I'm just thinking of the environment. I'd hate to see hip young folks waste half a tank a gas driving all the way to Buckhead when there's not one durn thing of interest to them there.

Just about the entirety of Atlanta's office absorption over the last year has been in Central Perimeter, Midtown, and Buckhead--in that order. The economic spine of the city running from the airport to North Fulton is getting more and more entrenched.

Not every district within that spine will always do well (downtown and North Fulton both took a step back this year), but in the long run I'd look for this trend to continue.

The area around Irby Avenue and Roswell Rd has probably 20 bars or so within a 3 block area. The weekends up there are ridiculously busy.

These people continue to comment on the city without knowing nothing about it lol. There has to be at least 30 bars in the Buckhead Village today.

Well, I have heard they are not much fun so I couldn't recommend them.
