The rooftop bar has great views, ordinary drinks, and great food. Specifically, their chili cheese fries are good, but the best thing is their white chicken sandwich, it's amazing.

The Georgia Theatre concert venue is a great place to see a show. Some of the perks include clean bathrooms and top notch bartenders. The drinks aren't overpriced considering the caliber of the venue. I would return to see a show here again in the...More

Sure, food and drinks are a tad overpriced, and seating is very limited on the rooftop. I was quickly able to look past that by adapting to whatever was available and, by doing so, meeting very friendly guests. Staff members too are friendly, past how...More

This is an annual stop for us on NYE. The staff is nice and the food is good. On NYE, it would be nice if they had heaters throughout the deck and not just at the bar. The beer is overpriced for Athens. They charge...More

Been attending concerts at the GT going on 25 years now. I kind of liked the old seating better before the fire, but it's still a great venue. Get ready to stand A LOT!! There are very few seats in the upper sections and they...More

Just stopped by for a quick cocktail. Great roof top bar. Rooftop is the way to go. Great energy and very respectful happy patrons. Brought tears to this old man's eyes.

Went to the Georgia Theatre to see my favorite band recently. And this place was really cool. Three levels including a rooftop bar give you room to dance. There's food available on the roof as well. Good view of the stage from all levels. Great...More

The rooftop bar has a wonderful ambience and the best view of town. Reasonably priced drinks and tasty hors d'ouerves make this a great place to meet friends and take visitors.

The remodeled Georgia Theatre is a classier, cleaner version of what it was like in the good old days. Gone are the faded, torn curtains and the sticky walls, but the essence of the venue is still intact. Tip: If you want to be close...More

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
