Backstreet

$29.50 USD

The legendary, beloved and expansive (47,000 sq. ft. on three floors) Backstreet was opened by second-generation owner Vicki Vara (her father having opened the place in the mid-1970s). The three levels of glory at the corner of Peachtree Street and 6th Street was alive with hundreds of men (and women too!) dancing together to booming beats under an electric light show and a giant shimmering disco ball. The club included legendary drag performer Charlie Brown and her crew too. And international pop stars like Elton John and Janet Jackson dropped in to see them perform (and to dance, of course).
As one of Atlanta’s few 24-hour clubs, (beginning in the mid-80s) craziness was the norm in midtown for two decades. But of course, a gentrifying Atlanta (and newcomer residents without a sense of humor) conspired to spell the end for Backstreet — and the last call was near after a failed legal battle to keep pouring at all hours. It stopped Raining Men after three decades of love, dancing and authenticity on New Years Eve in 2004.
