Magic City United? 

MLS Cup champs celebrate the Atlanta way - at legendary strip club

Any doubts that Atlanta has fully embraced soccer were put to rest Monday night in a haze of trap music, bottle service and glitter.

Fresh off of Atlanta United’s Saturday MLS Cup victory and Monday’s rainy but festive victory parade, the team celebrated Monday night where Atlanta dreams are made – Magic City. 

And yes, they made it rain. 


Not that it was a secret anyway, but several videos and photographs have surfaced on social media showing the Atlanta United players -- MLS Cup trophy in hand – celebrating their victory at the world-famous strip club. 

At one point, the Cup ended up on stage with the dancers surrounded by ones. In another instance, as part of a four second tweet, one dancer appears to give the Cup a lap dance.


In November, as the Atlanta United was storming its way toward the MLS Cup, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that Atlanta ranked as one of the country’s five most “sinful,” cities in large part because of its abundance of strip clubs. 


At the top of that heap is Magic City, which is known throughout the rap and hip-hop world as one of the top joints in the nation. Where rappers come to test out their new singles, where ample women are ready to dance to them and dollar bills rain down like well, rain.
