Best Places to Watch a Game

From Dantanna's to Milltown Tavern, Atlanta has great sports bars in every part of town, but for me, two in particular stick out the most. Located on Piedmont Road in Buckhead, Twin Peaks restaurant — and, more specifically, the beautiful Twin Peaks girls — serves up the perfect combination of comfort food, frosty beers and flat-screen TVs. Not to exclude the female demographic, but if you're looking for the perfect "man cave" to watch a big game, Twin Peaks is the place for you.

However, no matter where you are in Atlanta, the absolute best place to catch a game is Stats, located downtown on Marietta Street. The 16,000-square-foot restaurant has 5 separate bars that offer top-notch American fare, great beer and classic cocktails. Don't want to wait in line for the bartender to take your order? No problem! Stats is the only sports bar in Atlanta that features beer tap tables, where guests can choose two different beers on tap to be hooked up right to their table. Oh, yeah, and did I forget to mention that Stats is lined with 70 HDTVs? When it comes to watching sports in Atlanta, no place quite stacks up to Stats.
More Than Just Falcons Football

Within a 3-mile radius of the Georgia Dome — home of the Falcons — the Atlanta sports world is at your disposal. Fan of basketball? Philips Arena, which plays host to the National Basketball Association's Atlanta Hawks and the WNBA's Atlanta Dream, is just a half-mile down the road. Maybe baseball's your game? Break out the peanuts and Cracker Jack, because just 2 miles south of the Georgia Dome is Turner Field, home of Major League Baseball's Atlanta Braves.

For college football fans, Atlanta isn't really considered the ideal place to catch a game. You'll find yourself having to travel over an hour to Athens, GA, to see a quality matchup at the University of Georgia. However, if you're looking to get your fix and don't want to waste the gas and time to get to Athens, the College Football Hall of Fame is located just over half a mile from the Georgia Dome. From the Quad, a museum entrance that’s lined with the helmets of more than 700 college teams, to the skill zone within the Playing Field, a 45-yard replica football field, this is definitely the place for the perfect fan experience.
