It was partly built as the city's convention center, a role now largely filled by the state-run Georgia World Congress Center. It once served as the home of "Theatre of the Stars", a summer series of Broadway musicals featuring well-known stars of the entertainment industry. The Balanchine production of "The Nutcracker" was performed there annually for several years. The Civic Center also served as the site for the 1996 Summer Olympics cultural program.

Burlesque Atlanta Society is a free group that meets on the first THURSDAY of every month. We are a group of burlesque enthusiasts, performers, fans, and curious folks. This group was started a long time ago by Torchy Taboo and Tip Tart Tina. Talloolah Love has taken the reins and has been running The Atlanta Burlesque and Cabaret Club for the past seven years (since 2007). The location changes every year, and is currently at Elliott Street Pub. This can be a performance opportunity for people who want to get into burlesque, for seasoned performers to get peer reviews, and for performers and producers to allow for "teasers" for upcoming shows. It's a laid back environment that encourages comradery, meeting of the minds, and a sense of community. All are welcome if they are over 21, so come on out, enjoy the show, the great food, and the sultry atmosphere of one of Atlanta's most interesting independent performance groups in a venue befitting its artistes.

Omni Coliseum was an indoor arena located in Atlanta, Georgia, United States. Completed in 1972, the arena seated 16,378 for basketball and 15,278 for hockey. It was part of the Omni Complex, now known as the CNN Center.It was mainly used as the home arena for the Atlanta Hawks and the Atlanta Flames . It also hosted the 1977 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament and the 1996 Summer Olympics indoor volleyball.HistoryThe arena was considered an architectural marvel when first constructed, combining innovative design for the roof, seating, and the structure itself. The logo is based on the unique seating arrangement. The exterior was composed of Cor-Ten weathering steel, which was supposed to seal itself by continuing to rust, making a solid steel structure that would last for decades. The Omni was noted for its distinctive space frame roof, often joked about as looking like an egg crate or a rusty waffle iron. Designed by the firm of tvsdesign with structural engineering work by the firm of Prybylowski and Gravino, the roof was technically described as an ortho-quad truss system.
