Best Bar in Athens

KingoftheSouthKingoftheSouth Posts: 570 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

You get one, only one. Don't give me this ranked BS. Don't say well on gamedays I go here, on Friday nights I go here.

No, all of the bars close in Athens and u only get to save one. Which one stays open.

Give me the Globe. That is home. They have scotch.

    Always a soft spot in my heart for City Bar. When I was a younger man and walked into that place, my drink was ready on the bar before I got there.

    Well now. This should be a hotly-contested thread.

    Right? He told me I tipped too much once. Who does that?

    I know this doesn't count because they're closed, but for 15 years after every home game, the tailgating crew and I went to the original Allen's on Prince. Cold beer, hot cheeseburgers and a Picasso (Fred Picasso) on the wall!

    My apologies for being a bit off topic; I was looking it up to make the recommendation, found out it had closed and got a bit nostalgic. Kind of like Trump's, it was a piece of Athens that we really enjoyed, which, unfortunately, isn't there anymore!

    Magnolias, or mags for short, would probably be my favorite. Many a night started and ended there.

    Generals is poop. It's the Tripp Chandler of Athens bars

    It's gotta be All Good for me. The bloody mary bar on Saturday morning is on point.

    Nowhere Bar... classic Athens... no idea if it's still there or not.

    If I had to choose just one I would go with Mags, but I could write a term paper on this topic.

  • ghostofuga1ghostofuga1 Posts: 1,310 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Well, if I could have only saved one, it would have been O'Malleys'.

    Seeing that I haven't frequented bars there in 35 years......

    Someone should go ahead and put a pin in this thread.

  • sarceansarcean Posts: 61 ✭✭ Sophomore

    I'll have a drink at every single bar tomorrow and then post which one was the best

  • FunroeFunroe Posts: 138 ✭✭✭ Junior

    Are we talking about the best bar to watch a game in or the best bar to go out to on a Saturday night after a Georgia win?

    I think it's just the best overall bar.

    Papa Joe's when it was across from Guthries.

    Guthrie's is where I went the morning after going to City Bar

    I'm with the younger generation, so I lean towards the bars with the better party atmosphere. Hedges for me is my favorite due to the fact I know most of the staff and get a few freebies throughout the night.

    Pretty much what this thread is all about. I'm from the "somewhat" older generation where we virtually had about 10 or less bars in Athens and a few on the outskirts of town. So I really can't contribute to what's this best these days...

  • FunroeFunroe Posts: 138 ✭✭✭ Junior

    I just turned 21 a few months ago, but my ID says I've been 21 for a few years now haha it's always good to be at a bar watching a game with the older crowd though!

    Will it depends. Going out on a Friday night is different than watching football on a saturday or having drinks after a concert at the theatre.

    Friday night drinking - Boar's head
    Saturday drinking - Allgood
    Post concert drinking - Nowhere
    Middle of the week drinking - GA Bar
    Sunday drinking - Blind pig
    Day drinking - globe
    Karaoke drinking - Shokotini
    Dancing drinking - The loft (that place was so sketchy)
    Naked Women drinking - Toppers
    Powerhour drinking - Bourbon Street
    Just failed a test drinking - trapeze (scotch)
    Eating drinking - Mellow Mushroom

    That should cover it.

    I wish I could answer which bar in Athens is the best. It would mean I was young enough to know

    You're welcome to join a good ol' bar crawl after any game or any given weekend

    Now that is an in depth analysis...even if it didn't stay within the OP guidelines! Nicely done!

    GA Bar is closed FYI:(

    Nowhere used to be home. Loved that place being the dive that it is. Many many fun nights I will never remember there.

    Youre truly terrible at following the rules.
