Just pay the small fee and take the creepy elevator to this rooftop paradise with people of varied taste, personality, and colorful minds. Let the music beneath the night sky take you to another world and by all means... Dance!

Rooftop bar has 270 degree views of Downtown, fried chicken skins and decent burgers. Drinks are pricey, but it is a venue after all. Theater is intimate but seating tends to get uncomfortable after an hour or so.

Staff , including manager Drew, were very attentive in helping the parents set up and especially breaking down. Bartenders were great. Lighting specialist was very attentive to the special occasion. For a large frequently used venue, the bathrooms were clean.

No idea. I would suggest looking on the GA Theater website, and if you are looking for what else is happening in Athens on that date look at the Athens Chamber of Commerce website or just Google what's going on then. Hope... More
