Apache Cafe and Nightclub

Anonymous said...
Anyone who’s lived in the Atlanta area for many years has probably heard of the Yin Yang Cafe. It is now called the Apache Cafe/Nightclub. The nightclub is known for being a haven for local trendy artists and beatniks. But over time, the authentic artistic crowd that used to haunt Yin Yang has given the place over to a crowd of Beatnik Wannabes. These are the people who wear dreadlocks, chunky stones, and faded jeans. Some of them are “poets, rappers, or singers”, who are apparently looking for their next big break. (Many famous artists including India.Arie have been known to get their start at Apache Cafe.) Those who are not looking for their big break are usually just looking to be seen. As for the cafe itself, it’s a completely lovely vibe. The interior has been slightly redone over the years, the 2nd hand couches and tables giving way to a sleeker set of chrome tables and cafe chairs. The stage has been redone, and the acoustics are great. They’ve kept the exposed brick walls, but have revamped the outdoor patio. You’ll often find an assortment of vendors out there peddling everything from handmade jewelry, to fragrant oils, and even CDs. Musicians looking to hone their craft still frequent Apache. And it’s a very nice place to bring a date for a drink and some tapas. (Their spinach quesadillas are to die for.) Overall, the place is a beautifully eclectic establishment. It’s just a shame that some of the authenticity got lost along with the renovations.
