The other reviews of Underground Atlanta really don't do it justice, or paint an accurate picture of this underground mall. I work one of the kiosks, and can speak from experience when I say that it is perfectly safe to come here. I've never felt unsafe at the underground, and that includes closing up after hours when it's mostly deserted. The Underground is perfect if you're looking for cheap, cute clothing items or if you're a teenager and you want to go to a mall to hang out. It's probably not perfect if you're a tourist looking for things to do in the city. A large majority of the underground's patrons are working class people of color, and I suspect that some of the other reviewers may be not be use...
The Underground: It holds a lot of history. It's in an ideal location. It has a variety of businesses. And it's fallen into a state of despair. Restaurants can't hold onto a location here (I've only lived in Atlanta for a few years and I've seen several restaurants come and go in the same spot near Kenny's Alley). The vendors sell your average tourist crap, so there isn't much that's special about what you can find (although I will say they have a few very cool Atlanta tshirts). The restaurants all serve decent food (more or less) but the atmosphere is severely lacking. In terms of the overwhelming presence of pandhandlers and seemingly homeless people, while there were a couple reviews that referenced that ...
I hate when I tell stories that make me sound old, but I can remember coming here as a kid and thinking it was the coolest place on earth. I guess 20 years is a long time and Underground has absolutely outlived its usefulness. During the day it's actually not too bad. There's nothing to buy here, but if you work downtown there's not really anywhere else to come for lunch. If it weren't for the Braves shuttle and my father's office being nearby, I wouldn't have had a reason to step down the stairs here during my adult life. Well, except that one sweater I bought before the Gap closed (they ALWAYS had my size here) and for that year when Charlie Brown's Cabaret was open. That was pretty awesome. Great parking ...
Hide yo kids, hide yo wife! Please don't ever come here unless you want to meet some rather unsavory individuals in return. Despite what you Atlanta-area newbies and tourists have heard, this place is NOT a must see attraction. Perhaps at one ...
Wow, it's really disappointing to see what's happened to the Underground. It was never a regular hangout for me, but I didn't have problems meeting up with friends for lunch, or just to take a look around. Talk about jus...
