    It's a mocking place, very chilled, music playing, cheap drinks, and it gets crowded later on the night. It is worth the visit for the fun. And they have ping pong tables upstairs and Wed karaokes

    The most fun can be had at this bar. It's as if Tim Burton and Jon Waters decided to open up a fun house bar. There are games in the upstairs, a small back area and church robes ready to be worn.

    Say yes to the Sangria! And ask Seth to make you a mixed drink shot! Seth is such a knowledge and tentative bartender. My boyfriend and I throughly enjoyed our everything Church had to offer.

    The wall art is truly amazing, upstairs and down, some is very funny and imaginative. At the same time I was there on a summer Sunday evening and it was actually rather quiet and low key.

    Fun place to go with your friends. Cheap beer of PBR tallboys for $4 and fireball shots! And the artwork here will keep you and your friends entertained all night!

    The confessional on the first floor is a vintage 1800s piece from Yugoslavia & also serves as a photo booth. Get your picture taken in what is probably the only Confessional Photo Booth in the world!

    This is my new fave spot! Friendly staff , amazing things to look at , and try the Captain Crunch Krispy Treat. When your done downstairs go upstairs for a round of pingpong! Ammmeeennnnnn!

    Everything. The staff, the people/regulars, the sangrias, the church organ karaoke, the atmosphere, the patio, the art and the ping-pong.

    Fun to watch the amateur ping pong tournaments. Gets a bit cramped later in the night, but open real late. Spend some time looking at all the crazy Jesus memorabilia.

    The drinks were nice and the bartenders were surprisingly friendly. It is a hipster haven but fun and organ karaoke was a blast. Not for biblical literalists.

    Make sure to LOOK UP and notice the crazy stuff on the ceiling. Like the Peewee Herman nun mannequin wearing roller skates and a strap-on.

    Love the art and decor but the upstairs is crazy cramped which makes it impossible to play darts or ping pong. Fun atmosphere though...

    Cheap drinks, friendly staff, ping pong, church organ karaoke, crazy and eclectic decorations... One foursquare post isn't enough to do this place justice, just getcher @$$ to CHURCH!

    Don't come expecting food. Unless u want rice crispy treat or hot dog. Other than that fun place. Catholics beware u may feel guilt from church like lights and art, have a few & u won't mind

    Pretty cool bar. Very spacious so you can chill and have good conversations. Wish they had more than one ping pong table though.

    Get the sangria! Nice and strong. Make sure to eat the fruit as well, it's like taking a shot!

    I really really wish this bar lived in Williamsburg. Go for the props, the Jesus portraits, the cheap drinks, the great music, the conversation about the universe. Upstairs loo = gross.

    Love this place! Its so random. The music went from Nirvana to Two Chainz. Ping pong upstairs. They have choir robes you can wear.

    Grab a couple of free Sister Louisa postcards at the downstairs bar and frame them for some twisted artwork.

    PBR ping pong challenge, Win by finishing first, + a number of rules that include but are not limited to drinking after each point score, slam dunk, and or Hail Mary. Winners enjoy instant salvation.

    Very reasonably priced. Great atmosphere. No food but they let you bring / order your own.

    Take 'em to Church. Cool vibe, but there can be lots of students some nights. This is a must for any Atlanta visitor.

    Totally new restaurant/bar concept that is informed by a heavy-on-the-in-jokes-type sensibility. Also, "Big Weenies," "Congealed Salad" & "Bleachy Haired Honky Bingo" on Wednesday Nights." Read more

    This place reminds me of Austin, TX! You can spend the entire night looking at the artwork on the walls...and not because the arts pretty!

    A little overrated but an enjoyable place to get a drink. Cheap PBR. Don't go and expect to be able to play ping pong if it's after 7 pm.
