Best patio dance party for sinners and saints

Staff Pick

When's the last Sunday you went to church? Never? Great! Every second Sunday wünder-DJ Vicki Powell makes sinners and saints alike sweat on the patio of Church — or Sister Louisa's Church of the Living Room and Ping Pong Emporium if we're going to be formal. Artist Grant Henry's Old Fourth Ward bar attracts a mixed crowd of intown hipsters, alterna-gays, aging artists and everyone in between, and Sunday Service makes them all dance together. The party starts midday, but people really come out once the sun goes down. Then bar-goers let their morality fall by the wayside as they groove under the smoggy Atlanta sky. Powell spins electro remixes of favorites you haven't heard in, like, forever, from Stevie Nicks to M.I.A. Dancing on Sunday night is a cathartic release after a weekend of regrets. Best of all, there's never a cover, just like Jesus would have wanted. Every second Sunday. Sister Louisa's Church of the Living Room & Ping Pong Emporium. 466 Edgewood Ave. 404-522-8275.
