  • I had been to the underground several years prior and was impressed with the shops. When I went this time, there were less shops. The hotel desk advised our party not to go at night. 
  • I have lived north of ATL all my life, and Underground was once a place to go, not anymore.. It has become run down and unsafe for visitors. It should be closed and re-invested in if it's to stay open...  more »
  • Went there before new year. Many stores are shuttered with brown paper on windows. A few homeless people yelling at us as we walked from parking garage to underground atl. Just not what it used to be....  more »

  • READ THIS REVIEW IF YOU VALUE SAFETY! I've grown up in Atlanta and have witnessed first hand the decline of Underground Atlanta, unfortunately. When I would go with my family as a child, it was usually pretty busy with people of all types and backgrounds. It was fun, entertaining, and very much a part of historic Atlanta. A few years later, we visited and took some of my family from Mexico to visit, and we noticed it had gone downhill in terms of service and the type of crowd that hung around there. Then, last year (2015) I brought one of my international friends there to visit, thinking it would be the same...I felt SO UNSAFE this time around! There were crowds of people just hanging around outside that were visibly high or on drugs, I felt threatened, and I felt that in general there were sketchy people just walking around, not to mention that the place (shops and restaurants) are no longer of any quality, in my opinion. Everything was just dead and the atmosphere was dark and depressing. I'm normally a very positive person, but I don't recommend it in general. This is definitely not a "family outing" kind of place (kid friendly). It could have just been that one time that this happened, but based on the fact that I've been to Underground several times (and reading other people's experiences) I don't think I'm the only one who has felt threatened or unsafe. With renovation and new owners, however, I'm confident the place can be revived again. It really does have cool history to it, but I don't think it's worth it for your safety.
  • I was hoping to enjoy a good time and to show european visiting friends somethig nice about atlanta history. We went there early afternoon and one of the visitors (a 60 year old man) was looking at one of the store's displays and suddenly without any reason he was attacked by a young man that pushed him and then threatened the old gentelman. I will never again take visiting friends to the underground, i agree wih previous reviewers in that the certain unwanted type of people and feeling of "unease" own the underground now. I do not recommend it specially for women and kids.
  • Tons of small stores and vendors. Some stores are overproced and definitely geared towards tourits. Having grown up here, I only come when someone asks me to take them here. It's filled with clothing and shoes and Atlanta/ATL branded merchandise. It's like a large gift shop.
  • Have been going there since the late 1960's to present. Has gone through various bust and boom cycles, but visit there was the worse ever. Nothing left but a few food court stores, shoe stores and many carts selling various cheap merchandise. Zero clubs or bars anymore. Did not feel real at ease even though during the early afternoon. I cant see why anyone would want to go there except to hang out and cause trouble. No way at night! Sorry to see it go as years of memories back to college days in late 60's. Large clubs, big bands,Fat Tuesdays! All gone.A shame but things come and go and crime and white flight took this venue down.
  • Nice place to go to and learn about the history. They have very unique brick sculptures and signs so that you can read the history. However when we were outside looking at the different attractions a security guard told us we weren't allowed outside, nor were we allowed to "loiter" around the train attraction that was there. It was disappointing that we were forced to leave as the kids were learning about the underground railroad. The mall it self is beautiful. Brick all around, and full of rich history. We loved learning. We went on a Wednesday at 1p when there was supposed to multiple vendors with samples, there was nothibg. Most the stores and restaurants were not even open. I wouldn't go for shoppibg, but it is amazing to see and learn the history, if they don't tell you to leave.
