Peter Gatien opened the second of his Limelight disco nightclubs in the Buckethead neighborhood of Atlanta in 1980. This one featured two sharks under a glass dance floor. Gatien moved to New York in 1983 to open a Limelight club there and the Atlanta Limelight closed in 1985. It was located in a Piedmont strip mall and the Kroger grocery store next door was given the name "Disco Kroger." That grocery store has since been remodeled to a more Trader Joe's / Whole Foods type of store, but word is they kept the disco ball.

The Atlanta Limelight was also a filming location for The Slugger's Wife directed by Hal Ashby.
