Down an alleyway and up a back stairwell, the perfect place! Stopped in while visiting friends and can't wait to go back. Excellent beer selection and a laid back vibe.

This is a small bar with a huge selection of beers and drinks. It's not an undergraduate hangout and it's pretty chill. There are some TVs around, but they are not in your face. The outdoor seating is great too. A great place for happy hour. (By the way, this is a bar, not a restaurant, though it is possible... More

One of the few places with knowledgeable career bartenders. Great beer choices, classic cocktails, and creative cocktails. Excellent experience - quiet, low key, and affordable cocktails. 7$ old fashioned is very affordable, my wife and I were glad to find this place, no underage kids and amazing cocktails. Graham made excellent drinks and provided top notch customer service.

Had a cocktail called "The Moon Jockey" - I'm getting excited just thinking about it! and the Old Fashion - well get out your shakers mama...because this bar uses only the freshest mulled ingredients. The manager Gram is a walking beer dictionary.....with more than 200 different beers to choose from (no joke) - Gram can tell you the history and... More

It's located above another bar, and fairly small inside. I went on New Year's so of course it was utterly slammed in there. The music and crowds were loud, but the bartenders were fast. It feels kind of like a little hideaway, and there is a nice outdoor area. Pretty cool little place.

Lovely, unique hideaway with a view of the trees of north campus. A great way to feel like you're on campus when you're downtown having a grown-up beverage - GO!

This bar is awesome. There is an outside area in the back and the drinks are pretty awesome here. I miss the Blue Sky Cafe but this place is a great replacement.

Description
We are NOT a restaurant. We provide a selection of around 250 different craft and import beers, 5 of which are on tap. We boast a very creative and classic cocktail list, as well, with all our items discounted for happy hor (open to 9 pm). Our goal is to serve you your new favorite drink. Our location is somewhat tucked away in downtown Athens, however there are two methods of entry. Our front entrance is at the top of the stairs located to the left of downtown Taco Stand's front door, while the back entrance is located at the top of the stairs located on the back patio of Walker's Coffee and Pub. We would LOVE to host your next private event!
