The Atomic Bar and Lounge is a bar at 2113 1st Avenue North. It was opened in 2017 by Feizal Valli and his wife, Rachael Roberts.

The bar's interior is inspired by 1960s pop-art and mid-century decor, with several nods to favorite patrons and Birmingham notables, including a large-scale mural of Angela Davis and a recreation of the cover of the Beatles' Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover featuring images of Frank Stitt, Mother Angelica, John Archibald and Electra.

Bar patrons are allowed to borrow costumes, and the bar's signature cocktail, the "Sex Panther", comes with a temporary tattoo of a panther.
