Sister Louisa’s Church of the Living Room & Ping Pong Emporium, Atlanta
Everything that makes Sister Louisa’s Church of the Living Room & Ping Pong Emporium — or “Church” for short — a unique bar-going experience can pretty much be explained in its name. Like Tiger Mountain Thirst Parlour, Church’s walls are populated with kitschy religious art, but owner/artist Grant Henry took it several steps further — there are complimentary choir robes, pews in which you can wait to genuflect at the Ping Pong Table, an organ for live karaoke, and a retrofitted confessional that serves as a photobooth. Luckily, the similarities to actual church stop there. Instead of tiny communion-sized glasses of grape juice, Sister Louisa’s serves up stiff drinks and $3 beers in adult-sized glasses.
What to Order: Straight up whisky or cheap beer. Nothing fancy here except the organ.
