Tired of being single?
Wanna meet hot, smart singles in Atlanta who you can possibly settle down with?!
Have no fear – Datermeister is here!
Datermeister knows that dating in 2018 has become a bit harder …
… But what we also know is that, a lot of the times, people have simply forgotten to do the basics when it comes to dating.
This means going to the right places, putting yourself out there and saying “hey” to strangers.
It means having a bit of patience and making an effort …
… And it also means remembering that you need to be proactive AND prepared to have some fun!
In this article, we take a look at the 7 best places to meet singles in Atlanta.
1. Best nightclubs for Atlanta singles
If you want to meet someone who for sure is going to be a total party person, you NEED to hit the Atlanta singles scene.
In other words, the nightclubs.
Clubs are great places to meet fellow life lovers who want nothing more than a good time at the weekend.
It’s not hard to meet someone in a club. All you need to do is go to a club that’s always busy, load up on one or two drinks and hit the dance floor.
Then, you need to be prepared to dance with someone you fancy and, when the time is right, move in for a kiss.
Here are the 2 best nightclubs in Atlanta:
Lave Lounge (57 13th St NE, Atlanta, GA 30309): Lava Lounge is THE most happening nightclub in Atlanta. It’s home to not one, not two and not three bars but four bars! It also has three floors and an outdoor Tropical Deck. It’s absolutely perfect for meeting someone new on the dance floor.
MJQ Concourse (736 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30306): How does an all-night dance party sound? How about live bands too and lots and lots of energy? Grab a friend and hit MJQ Concourse at the weekend. Wear your best clothes, flash your smile and see who you can get grooving with.
2. Best Bars in Atlanta For Singles
Find clubs a tad too loud and busy?
No problem. But because you don’t want to veer too far from the Atlanta singles scene, you need to pop your head into bars.
Bars are among the best places to meet singles in Atlanta because they give you a chance to talk to anyone.
Not comfortable with talking to new people? To make yourself more at ease with this, start conversations with just about anyone – even people you don’t fancy!
All you need to do is make a comment about, say, the weather to someone stood next to you at the bar and you’re away. People WILL respond to you. The more you do this, the easier it will become to approach people you have the hots for.
Small talk is how it starts. If the small talk goes well, you build momentum and then clinch the deal.
Here are the 2 best Atlanta singles bars:
Joystick Gamebar (427 Edgewood Ave SE, Atlanta, GA 30312): It doesn’t matter if you’re not into video games, the whole point of this joint is that you can have fun with total strangers! With loads of pinball and arcade games on offer, you can challenge a sexy Atlanta single to have a game with you. Best out of 3 and the loser has to give up their number.
The Local (758 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30306): Another cool Atlanta singles bar that has arcade games. The place is brimming with energy, and the best thing? It does karaoke! Duet, anyone? We reckon My Heart Will Go On is a winner!
3. Concerts or Stand-up Comedy Shows Are Especially Some of the Best Places to Meet Singles in Atlanta
Love live music? Ever thought that a concert could be a great place to meet your next partner?
The thing about concerts is that you already know that you and another sexy single already have something in common.
Moreover, they’re just like clubs in that you can get dancing with someone new. Just position yourself strategically, catch someones eye and introduce yourself during a break between songs.
Don’t chew their heads off throughout the concert. Just swap names, keep dancing and ask them if they fancy a post-concert night cap.
Comedy shows aren’t as easy for meeting new people, but they’re far from slim pickings. In fact, they’re ripe with Atlanta singles in search of a good time.
All you’ve got to do is catch someones attention during the show and see if they wanna chat properly once the comedian is finished.
And, hey, if they love comedy, see if they fancy joining you for another comedy night you wanted to go to!
Here is the best comedy club in Atlanta:
Laughing Skull Lounge (878 Peachtree St NE, Atlanta, GA 30309): It’s a tad on the small side (it seats just 74 people) but it’s super intimate, which means you’ll never be too far away from a hottie. As long as you position yourself right, you could have the whole evening to banter with someone. This place is also perfect for Atlanta singles over 40.
4. Best Places to Meet Atlanta Singles Online
Why toss all your eggs in one basket when you could be meeting singles offline and online?
While Datermeister loves the traditional method of meeting new people, we also know that online dating can be really powerful.
Well, as long as you avoid Tinder, that is!
If you want to connect with some serious singles in Atlanta during your downtime, here are the 2 dating sites we recommend:
Match.com: Easy (and free) to register and simple to get the hang of, no weird algorithms will be pairing you up with totally unsuitable singles on Match.com. Instead, you get to engage people in creative Q and A’s that have been designed to help you learn a lot more about the person you’re talking to. Definitely one of the best dating sites in the USA.
EliteSingles.com: If you want to meet a hot single who also has brains, EliteSingles is THE place to go. This is where all the cute doctors, lawyers and PhD graduates are!
“But what about if I want to meet Catholic singles in Atlanta?”
That’s cool – both Match and EliteSingles let you refine your search so that you can easily find Catholic, Jewish singles in Atlanta or even Christian singles in Atlanta.
Just create a profile, ask a friend to pick some pictures for you, and write a brief but compelling bio!
5. Gyms Are Great Places to Meet Atlanta Singles
Gyms and any kind of health and fitness-focused class – such as yoga and meditation – are among the best places to meet singles in Atlanta.
Why? Because, unlike a bar of a club, you can become a regular who gets to know the other regulars. Over time, you can introduce yourself, engage in small talk – and ask someone out.
Plus, you already know that everyone who goes to these places are as passionate about health and fitness as you are. It’s win-win!
So if you’ve been looking for extra motivation to join a gym, you’ve just got it!
Just try not to look too sweaty and dead when you come off the treadmill – you never know who you might bump into!
6. Atlanta Singles Events – Or Any Kind of Networking Events
A red hot Atlanta singles activities is speed dating.
The concept is simple: you spend the evening chatting to various other singles for 3 minutes at a time. If there’s someone you hit it off with and they agree, you can set up a date the next day.
The best thing is that you’ll already know that the two of you have chemistry!
And even if you don’t find your soulmate, the experience will make you more comfortable – and confident – with talking to new people.

And why stick to just singles events? People do meet their partners at general networking events, so you should totally give these a try, too.
Moreover, general networking events give you the chance to expand your social circle. And the more friends you have, the more opportunities you’ll have of meeting that special someone.
7. Learn a new skill (while meeting people with the same interests) or do “hobby dates”
Lastly, if you want to learn a new skill, here’s a tip: Don’t be a bore who learns it alone! Get out of the house, sign up to a class and use this as a chance to meet new people.
Art classes, language classes, cooking classes and so on are filled with potential singles in Atlanta who would love to go for a drink with you after class!
So there you have them – the 7 best places to meet singles in Atlanta!
As long as keep putting yourself out there and hit the Atlanta singles scene on a regular basis, you’ll soon start meeting new people.
