Tucked away in a quiet strip mall on Roswell Road is a place where young and old alike come to celebrate the weekend. I am talking about Johnny’s Hideaway, “Atlanta’s Only Nightclub for Big Kids.” And they aren’t kidding.
Johnny’s specializes in music from the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s and they mean it. From The Contours, The Beach Boys and The Temptations to Madonna, ABBA and Shania Twain, they basically play all of your favorite songs from the 40’s on.
Now I am not the biggest dancer, but the music and energy of the place will get you out on the dance floor. Please be advised that they do not allow drinks on the dance floor and will seriously take your drink away from you and throw it away. They take their dancing very seriously at Johnny’s.
The clientele has to be my favorite part about Johnny’s. No where else will you find 20-somethings mixed in with 80-somethings; the age ranges are endless. There is a little bit of a “cougar” feel to the place but it’s part of the atmosphere and really, part of the fun. It’s a place where anyone, regardless of age, can come and dance without feeling out of place or unwelcome. Just beware ladies, those older gentlemen are persistent.
If you are looking for an intimate evening, go elsewhere. But if you and your friends are looking for a fun, dance-filled night, give Johnny’s a try.
