Atlanta enjoys its college football and watching a game from this stadium is a sure treat. The Yellow Jackets are one of the most impressive college bands if you are able to catch them. If you are searching for a true college feel and looking for the local bars to visit either before of after the game we have provided the top sports bars in close proximity below;
The Barrel House
If you’re not lucky enough to get seats for a Georgia Tech Game then make sure you get down to The Barrel House! Located on the edge of the university Campus the bar shows all the games on an enormous projection screen and has a fantastic atmosphere! The bar is stacked with a wide range of local and craft beers with prices ranging from $2 to up to $9 for a brew – they also have a game day special drink of a tequila shot – laced with spicy Siracha sauce! A good a way to celebrate a touchdown as any!
Fox Bros Bar – B – Q
If you are looking for a good old fashioned place to watch the game, have some beers and enjoy some typical American comfort food, then Fox Bros Bar – B-Q is the place to be! Known very well among locals of Atlanta and the college goers of Georgia Tech, this institution has 7 rotation beers on tap as well as 45 different bottled beers – you’ll never go thirsty! Go feeling hungry as well – with tonnes of Sandwiches, Burgers and Snacks – it’s a great place for beers before, after and even during a game!
If Fox Bros is an institution of Atlanta sports fans then The Varsity is a local legend. Opened in 1928 – the Varsity has been entertaining sports fans for nearly 80 years and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon! Everyone who is anyone has eaten here with celebrities, athletes and even Presidents all stopping in to grab a drink and a famous hot dog before a game!
Taco Mac is about a classic as a sports bar as they come – something that the place fully embraces. You won’t find top end cuisine here – but when you’re gonna watch a game, do you really want that? With over 35 HD TV Screens showing the action – you will never miss a moment of the game. However, choosing which screen to watch might not be your hardest choice! Taco Mac have over 100 Craft and Local beers on tap. That’s right, over 100! Now – you aren’t gonna be able to get through the whole selection, but with their great idea of having Beer Flights (over 1,000,000 different combinations) for just $10, you can try as many samples as you can handle! If that’s not enough they also have a delicious selection of wings for you to indulge in!
In Atlanta’s Midtown you will find Hop City – a place that boasts the fact it has the largest selection of beers to purchase in the whole South East – quite a claim! As well as having a really stocked beer shop, it has a laid back bar scene, with over 60 beers on tap. As you can figure out by the name – this is a place that takes craft beer pretty seriously – Luckily, the staff are more than happy to help you out in navigating the menu!
