It's no secret that Atlanta is filled with hidden gems, unique bars, eateries, and crazy cool experiences. One of the bars in Atlanta is an absolute must-visit for an experience like no other. Sister Louisa's Church is an eccentric spot that'll take you to a place you've probably never gone before while you get lost in their liquor.
Sister Louisa's Church of the Living Room & Ping Pong Emporium is something you just have to go experience for yourself to believe it's real.
This bar is squished in between Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church and The Martin Luther King Center.
Grant Henry, otherwise known as Sister Louisa, is the owner of this cool joint and opened it back in 2010. Henry started to get a Master's in Divinity and Pastoral Care, but quickly bumped that and started expressing themselves in a different way.
"She" has been creating art since 1996, and that's what visitors can see all throughout the establishment. You can even purchase her works off the walls if you want.
This spot welcomes everyone from all walks of life and encourages visitors to pop by with their sign that says, "Come on in, Precious!"
You can see guests on their website and Instagram, wearing various choir-style church robes, so don't forget to find them when you're in there and snap a few pictures.
Those that are easily offended should probably skip out on this creative spot that some may say "borders on blasphemy", but they'd be missing a pretty unique experience.
On the walls, you'll see various artworks that feature sayings like, "God Bless Our Crack Church, Please," and "Follow Jesus Outside & Smoke."
There are also various paintings of religious figures with a little twist, that you'll just have to go see for yourself.
The bar just got a huge renovation and expansion too, so now there are three fully stocked bars, a large patio, and a new kitchen space. There are also six new TV's and a stage for church organ karaoke and comedy nights, according to Eater ATL.
While the eats menu is currently limited, the Church has plans to expand their options to include salads and entrees as well as vegan and keto-friendly bites in the near future.
Grab a "God Dog" and your favorite cocktail and get to partying like a priest.
Address: 466 Edgewood Ave. SE, Atlanta, GA; there's also a location in Athens at 254 W Clayton St. Athens, GA
Why You Need To Go: This funky and eccentric bar in Atlanta gives ode to the church, but in a different kind of way.
