Looking to get the most bang for your nightlife dollar? Take note: Buckhead is out. Midtown is in. GPS your way to the corridor bordered by Peachtree and 12th streets (or better yet, grab a cab) and plan on making a night of it. Hit Ra Sushi's street-facing patio bar for eats and cocktails with risqué monikers. (Dare you not to smirk when ordering the Shiso Naughty martini and Hot Mess crispy rice balls.) Or seek traditional pub favorites, such as corned beef and hash or Guinness BBQ burgers, at neighboring Rí Rá Irish Pub. Some of the ornate wooden bar fixtures were reclaimed from old churches, the 250-year-old front doors once stood at the entrance of a Dublin shop, and (in case you were wondering) most staff members aren't faking their brogue.

Still going strong? Good. Because a night's worth of dance, club, and lounge scenes are just steps away. Flip Flops has a casual beach-house theme and a premixed frozen drink bar that's popular with bachelorette entourages and ex-fraternity types looking to relive their heydays. Celeb spottings are common at Opera, an upscale spot themed as a lavish playhouse. For hookah pipes, bottle service, and a dance-loving crowd, venture across the street to Sutra, which houses a mood-lit main space and bar, terraced back patio, and glass-partitioned VIP lounge.—Tiffany J.
