    I've seen over 20 shows here, and each one was fantastic. I love the architecture is beautiful and rich with culture. There isn't a bad seat in the house. I love seeing shows here!

    Upstairs, Beth and Kevin are the sweetest, most attentive bartenders. They remember my drink, show after show. Also, the baños are pretty clean.

    One of my all time faves. Parking in the deck across the street cheaper than the surface lots right next to the venue. Ted's Montana Grill also right across the street.

    I like to stand just in front of the sound board but then they moved in upstairs. Floor still has the est sound. One of the best venues in town overall.

    Now a live music and entertainment venue, The Tabernacle was once home to a 4,000-person Baptist congregation and the 3-bed Tabernacle Infirmary.

    They have excellent shows here. You can sit balcony or be on the floor but they don't allow re-entry once you have left the stage area, so you can't go to the bathroom or anything until it's over

    Don't get a balcony stage left or right seat nearest to stage wall or you'll have obstructed views and will just be watching the monitors!

    If you are planning on drinking, always remember to get to wristband you need before you get in the building. Otherwise they will send you back outside to get it.

    I like that The Tabernacle has seats on the second floor. It's a really cool venue but certainly not the best in Atlanta.

    The Tabernacle was a baptist church up until 1994, when it was sold to use as a entertainment venue for the 1996 Olympics. Thats some soul music!

    A hundred years ago it was a church and now it's a live-music venue. When Goodie Mob did a reunion concert, they played it there. Read more
