A lot of times, those establishments don't have as many people because the filming either happens at slow hours or it's arranged to be like that; in both cases, that works to the advantage of both the film crew and the establishments.



Right but not as many as Atlanta. I'm making a point of comparison.

I'm not saying that Houston doesn't have these things but that Atlanta has more of them. I mean Atlanta has almost a million more Black people than Houston and almost double the metro Black population by percentage so it only makes sense.
This is fair.

Yep, it's just a function of the numbers, niche industries, and history. That said, I don't think the difference in nightlife, which is smaller than it used to be, is going to make a difference for most people in terms of choosing a place to live. The nightlife difference mostly counts when it comes to visitors and overall, Atlanta does a better job in the tourism department so there's that to consider as well.

Not really, even though Buckhead was popping back in the day and it isnt now today Edgewood ave, Peters St, etc wasn't here back then so it kind of balanced out. I would say nightlife is more diverse now and more "underground". Back in the day its was all about southern music at the clubs here. Now we still have that plus more reggae spots, lounges, house music events, etc. Back in the day its was all about the club and strip clubs. I mean its still that way today lol but you can include those other demographics now

Of course, Houston isn't on TV as much as Atlanta as far as reality shows. If you notice, many of the establishments that those people on Atlanta's shows go to are empty, and the shows are filmed at the same spots. LOL.


Most of the places are empty because they shoot during off nights for the most part like on Monday and Tuesdays. Its too much of an hassle to shoot say on the Friday night because you just can't shoot over the loud music, too many people, plus the film crew takes up too much space and that space that they are taking up could go toward people that want to be in there spending money, etc.

I was looking at the 2010 figures. Looking at the 2014 figures for both CSA, Atlanta has about 850K more Black people which is still a huge difference in raw numbers.

I'm not making an exhaustive list of Atlanta's big events; that's too time consuming, plus you used to live there so you should know all about them. However, a few signature ones that have a significant nightlife component to them would include the BET Hip Hop Awards, the Hoodie Awards, Honda Battle of the Bands, Atlanta Greek Picnic, SpelHouse homecoming (some years in conjunction with CAU homecoming), Bronner Brothers Hair Show, and Black Gay Pride.

I did, but since there's a little challenge, I want to clap back with Houston's events. You were dismissed a long time ago.
