In fact, the iconic Roswell Road dance club and eatery, which bills itself as “Atlanta’s only nightclub for big kids,” is celebrating its 40th birthday this year. Patrons both young and old go for the great music selection, feels-like-home vibe and menu filled with favorite bites. “Johnny’s Hideaway offers something for all people of all ages,” says owner Chris D’Auria. “Over the years, we’ve adapted based on the crowd, such as changing the music we play and the dress code. We bend our rules to work with the crowd to make it a place for everyone.”

Patrons have flocked to Johnny’s Hideaway for dancing and dining since it opened way back in 1979.

D’Auria maintains this commitment to the customers is the reason they keep returning to Johnny’s week after week and year after year. “Our philosophy is that each person who walks in the door is entitled to the same experience whether it’s their first time or they’re one of our regulars,” he says, adding that guests should also expect the same service, atmosphere and experience whether it’s noon, 7 p.m. or 2 a.m.
