This week's Best of Atlanta poll found out where you get your groove on. Coming in first place, BlastHouse is an all-ages, alcohol and drug free music venue located in Lawrenceville. It originated in the living room of two sisters, but these days you can find this concept housed in a unique, intimate space. 

BlastHouse, in Lawrenceville, Ga., is an all-ages, alcohol and drug free music venue.

Most people think of the Tabernacle when they list their most beloved Atlanta concert venue. Originally a church when it opened its doors in 1910, the Tabernacle now boasts some of the world's biggest acts gracing their stage.
