Fodor's Review

Underground has seen more than its share of ups and downs. It was created from the web of subterranean brick streets, ornamental facades, and tunnels that fell into disuse in 1929, when the city built viaducts over the train tracks. The six-block district opened in 1969 as a retail and entertainment center and remained fairly popular until it was closed in 1980 for the MARTA train project. After a $142 million renovation, it reopened with eateries, retail, and specialty

shops. AtlanTIX, a half-price ticket outlet theater and cultural attractions, is in Underground Atlanta. It's open 11 to 6 Tuesday to Saturday, noon to 4 Sunday.

Don't bother

Basically an underground shopping mall set among older buildings in Downtown. Unfortunately, you can't see much architectural detail, the place seems claustrophobic and dark, and it has a feel both scruffy and touristy. Has the usual mall stores plus a bunch of forgettable bars and food court restaurants. Don't bother.

AVOID!!!

if you dare to go, be sure to do so early in the day, as nightfall brings an unruly and undesirable crowd. the shops are not worth visiting.
