There’s a little window next to the Variety Playhouse entrance that opens one hour before the venue’s doors. Be there when they do if you want a full selection of things like brisket, ribs, and creamed corn from Das BBQ because they tend to run out. Plus, getting there early means you don’t have to eat your pulled pork sandwich in a general admission mosh pit, which we cannot endorse.

With it’s massive red-eyed skull above the entry, The Vortex is a bar and grill in in Little Five Points that’s open late and not hard to find.
The Porter Beer Bar
We’d go to The Porter just for the Belgian fries, but they also have a long list of beers and lots of great vegetarian options too.
The famous Nashville chain opened a location in Little Five Points and while the waits are still long, their hot chicken is definitely worth it.
