    Sound is better in new space. Downside is 3 venues (Heaven, He'll and Purgatory) are small and in Underground. Can never find access and hardly see a soul unless PD. Unsafe. Cheap drinks good music.

    "The shows upstairs are more enjoyable because the sound from the upper part of the venue bleeds through and drowns out the band on the 1st floor." - Roy LaManna, Music Entrepreneur Read more

    They built a park, apartments, and a new music park where the old lot used to be. Side street Parking only so come early! No more old easy masq parking which SUCKS!

    If you love live music, amazing shows, and feeling like the building is going to collapse under your feet... you have to come to The Masquerade! <3

    Make sure you check out all levels. Sometimes there is live music on one level and a dj on another.

    Side street parking is no longer allowed. The adjacent lot is $5 with plenty of space. It is a staple of the Atlanta music scene.

    Stick with beer...They use their beer cooler ice as ice for their cocktails...Also, don't get shot in a parking lot dispute and park at Murder Kroger up the street....yes, it's safer.

    Legendary venue that has featured numerous metal shows since the 90's. Three levels and an outside stage brings most of the metal tours to this venue.
