We attended a pre-game event on the rooftop bar. It was a nice view of the city and the drinks were delicious. The bartender acted almost like we were invisible or bothering him when placing a drink order.

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!

My family and I had lunch here yesterday. I had a hamburger which was very good. My wife and daughters had the pimento cheese sandwich and it was very good.

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.

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
