Alright, we'll cop to a slight bias here. Mary's, a little dive tucked into the heart of East Atlanta Village, is the best bar in Atlanta. Our humble magazine is actually the offspring of late-night porch talks after one too many whiskey gingers and vodka sodas. In fact, pretty much all your trusty WUSSY editors (who weren't best friends their entire life!) and most regular contributors met at this bar. Whether you're coming to see the Village Queens, shake a leg at Bitch Please, or belt your ass off to a Fleetwood Mac song during one of their infamous karaoke nights, Mary's just feels like home.
But we're not the only faggots who think so. Not only have they been voted as the Best Karaoke AND Best Gay Bar for five years in a row locally by Creative Loafing, Mary's has been praised as one of the top 50 gay bars in America by OUT Magazine.
On Friday, November 20th, Mary's will celebrate its 17th birthday with a party hosted by bearded beauty Hydrangea Heath and with music by DJ Headmaster. To say thank you, we enlisted some help from the bar's family of regulars, DJs, and queens.
