Need advice from people in Atlanta

I'm passing through Atlanta on my way back home from Iraq. I'm looking for some fun venues that are a little more upscale or at least not completely focused on alcohol.....Bars and nightclubs would be cool, but I'd prefer not screaming over the music so we can talk and catch up. Haven't seen her in a few years. We're both in our 30's. Thanks in advance for the help!
