Been to several cities with underground malls. This one is second only to the one in Montreal. Good place to visit.

It needs redevelopment. It's a disappointment for the tourist traveler and Atlanta local alike. But there is value in the history of the tiered urban space with 19th century architectural remnants. Sadly the history of Underground Atlanta will be forever destroyed with the new development soon to demolish this endangered historic place. If you want the true South Downtown experience,... More

This place has nearly everything you can imagine. Clothes, videos, jewelry, foods, sweets, perfumes, candles and more! I enjoy being underground. I love haggling. Gives one that true market feel. I really want to give this place a 3.5. The vendors and stores are decent. It's just the surrounding area. I won't come near without my CCDW permit. Area doesn't... More

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.

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....20 years ago.

Whatever was in the past, it's gone. The special atmosphere is still there but a lot of shops are gone, dilapidated. How they survive is a mysterie. The building is still special but not worth any detour.

The place looks like scary and the stores are old and dirty. Not a place for fun or shopping without watching around all the time.
