I saw George Strait in concert here and also went to an Atlanta Hawks game here as well. It is a great venue and is relatively easy to get to if you take MARTA. There are several good restaurants inside and we only had to wait in line 5-10 minutes to get in the door.

Snacks were typically priced for a city of this size. Lots of choices....we just split a nachos and a bag of peanuts on our first visit, along... More

it was an awesome experience, although I am from chicago and big time bulls fan. The ambience and the roar that Hawks fan creates is just mesmerizing.
