This place is horrible. Mostly all the stores are useless, you've got people running around acting like hoodlums, and to top it off you have homeless people begging for money every 10 feet.

There are always something new going on at the underground in Atlanta such as the new Dupsies African clothing store with the unique clothing for all, the styles are not only unique but cut across all ages. My feelings and view of underground Atlanta stores can be callibrated in the poem below:

I must go to underground Atlanta again
for the call of the latest in african attires
Is a loud call and a sure call
that won't be just a fad
and all I ask is a happy day
and free parking for all shoppers
to make buying a glorious affairs
with credit cards and palstic bags
and no more crying for lack of
authentic and stylish Affrican clothing
to adore the black history month
for all african weddings, naming outfits,
office and church outfits
and other special occassions
A mirror into our past far beyond
the african pyramids in Egypt
I must go down to underground Atlanat again!

Pros: Unique stores such as Dupsies African clothing is there!

Cons: You have to pay for parking

The first (and last) time we visited Underground Atlanta, our car was broken into in broad daylight. We parked in an open parking lot caddy corner to Johnny Rockets at around noon on a Sunday to do some shopping before the Braves game. A thief broke into our trunk by somehow popping the lock and took my backpack of clothes, my girlfriends purse and her laptop. I actually happened to stumble across our ransacked stuff in the bathroom after they made off with a few little things in my backpack, her laptop, digital camera and Garmin GPS unit. We also felt very unsafe just walking around the Underground and there was even a guy being arrested for an unknown reason while we were there. I don't even care about the electronics that were stole, we were just extremely upset about the amount of pictures and personal information that were lost on the camera and the laptop, items that are priceless! I will avoid the entire Atlanta area at all cost from now on. We did however, go to Lenox Square in Buckhead for some shopping and it was very nice.

My 1st visit to Atlanta was in autumn 2007. My aunt & I were dropped off at The Underground by my local friends who recommended it to be "the place" to purchase souvenirs to take back home to Sydney, Australia. As tourists, we were disappointed to find out that most business's had closed and there weren't many choices of gift shops to browse & buy souvenirs plus there were limited choices of products available. We also felt unsafe there. It was too dark & not tourist friendly. I will be returning to Atlanta next week and I will ask my friends to take me elsewhere to buy souvenirs. I am not going back to The Underground. No doubt there are better places in and around the outskirts of Atlanta that have more variety of products to choose from and are safer areas to shop.

We drove around the Underground part of Atlanta fully expecting to get out and do some shopping because several internet sites recommended this as a great historic shopping area. This was at 5 - 6 pm, not yet dark out. There was NO WAY we were about to get out of the car. I am serious, there was a very very dangerous vibe to this part of town. It was crowded, police everywhere, people cruising all over the street almost hitting us... NOT tourist friendly at all. The Atlantic shopping area is the way to go, outdoor layout and great selection of stores! Atlanta, you have to do something about the Underground - the dangerous 'vibe' was a big turnoff and it is obvious that other nearby areas in Downtown are suffering because of the chaos of the Underground. I go to NYC every year, and i have spent time in several other big cities as well and I have absolutely never felt so unsafe as I did driving near the Underground.

As a native of Atlanta and a local I have to say that Underground is a good place to visit. The crime that some have associated with Underground and the area are not so. I have lived in Downtown Atlanta and work across the street from Underground at Georgia State University for over 25 years. You do NOT need to walk in fear around underground. That does not mean that you should not exercise caution, especially at night. Unfortunately the World of Coke has moved to Centennial Park next to the Georgia Aquarium so that major tourist draw is gone. Still its worth a check out.

Atlanta has been over hyped and 'PR sanitized'-the reality is far different!(higher per capita violent crime statistics than LA,NY and Chicago)-Dont expect a pleasant, fun experience! If you are not within eye ball range of a uniformed Police Officer-You Are Not Safe In Atlanta!-Get a concealed weapons permit and legally carry concealed if you plan on spending any time in the downtown or midtown atlanta area,carry pepper spray(aim for the eyes- Run!)-It can save your life

Really good shopping , but the area isn't the safest. There are a few good restaurants and a few night clubs. Its a cool hang, but be sure to have a ton of friends with you.

Family visited Undergropund Atlanta several years ago (maybe late 90's) Back 8/08--dirty, not safe, gangsta adults and kids bunched up in groups all over blocking sidewalks. I don't think we have ever been so disappointed in a place in our lives. This is a disgrace to Atlanta. We have spoke to over 25 people in past 2 weeks on this and all feel the same. Atlanta--get this cleaned up!!!!

My husband & I went to the underground to party on Friday & Saturday night. We both LOVED it we are going back next month. We are from Annapolis Md. We never experianced so much fun with so many mature fun loving people.We have no place like that in Maryland to party. I recommend the underground night life to everyone over 21 looking for a good time.

I went, I saw, and I'm thankful I lived to get home! Underground Atlanta is a HORRIBLE place. I went and took my 16 yr old daughter. Major mistake! The lewd comments made toward my daughter by the trash hanging around there and the thugs hanging around is enough to keep me from EVER going back and will recommend against it to all my friends!

After hearing great things about the Underground, I decided to pay a Friday night visit. I was NOT impressed. First of all, it's in a sketchy area. Second, there is nothing to do after the stores close. The "clubs" if you want to call them that, were not open, and the bars that were, were dirty, dark, and dingy. Not appealing. After walking around on the upper part of the Underground, I realized that the only people on the street were police officers and bums begging for money. A robbery had just occurred right in that area. I did not feel safe AT ALL, and I will never go back. Not a place to go if you are looking for someplace clean and fun.

I think it is still the same as back in the day. Fast food in variety, shoping places, single professionals. By me traveling around the country, I've learned to enjoy myself where ever I am. Regardless of the kids, lack of security, ect.... You have those elements every where. You can still go to the Underground to have fun and shop.

This is a nice spot to walk around with someone, possibly a date, and just see things and talk about world affairs, politics, the sidewalk vendors hocking wares or the GREAT chili cheese fries at the Johnny Rockets near the music store. This is like a mall, but not, and that's what makes it a chill place.

Over twenty years ago, when Underground Atlanta, first opened, this place was the bomb! Great Restaurants/Bars/Clubs and unique shopping. Today this is not even a skeleton of the original. Tacky vendor booths, lousy food-court, and out of control teens running everywhere! The Marta station, does nothing to bring quality guests and tourists to this destination. Do yourself a favor and go to Atlantic Station, above the ground, where the air is fresh, and you don't feel like you have to watch your back!

Underground Atlanta, back in the days, was the place to visit. It is now full of shopping stores and restaurants which would be an outstanding place to go if they would just control the kids/childrens. Children under the age of 16 shouldn't be allowed to wonder without parental control. Bring back the nostalgic days when you can walk through listening to the great sounds of music. Many teenagers are very respectful, however, they need a community center to hang out downtown. I love the mix of people & shops Bring back older bands to entertain outside and in. I would love to sit on the steps of the Underground listening to music 'till 12mid having a drink or two. Overall, I enjoy walking the Underground. Parents don't allow your kids to go to Underground without you. Overall, it's a great place!

THE UNDERGROUND HAS REALLY GONE DOWN. ITS JUST A PLACE FOR PARENTS TO DROP OF THEIR KIDS TO RUN WILD, BUT I FOR 1 WOULD NOT. IF WANT TO SEE A BUNCH OF PUNK ROCKERS, DOOMS DAY, OR MAYBE A COUPLE OF 'I DONT KNOW WHAT I AMS' TEENS, THEN THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO

All the shops were the same as you would find in any mall in America. The only thing my group found remotely interesting were the historical markers telling what had been in that spot. I enjoyed the architecture but somehow the overhead pipes and cement just "dampened" whatever architectural experience might have been had. This is definitely not all its cracked up to be....

This is just a large tourist mall -- great if you're looking to buy some Atlanta magnets. It is conviniently located right in the downtown so I think it's worth a short trip to see the interesting decour.

the chocolate shop and the souvenirs if you are visiting as a tourist. Try anything with pralines and the Tuttles are mouthwatering. If you live/work in ATL & need a sinful stress reliever (or something to sneak in to Turner Field for a Brave's game), grab a piece fresh-made chocolate. It is soooooo good!

Underground Atlanta is really nothing more than a glorified shopping mall. Unless you're being forced to walk through it to get to the Braves shuttle, this is not a place I think of frequenting or taking visitors when they come to Atlanta.
