Really any concert that they have will be a good one if you have an open mind. Be prepared to stand, maybe dance. There is no inside seating. Go to the bar on top of the building and meet the locals. Have some fun.

First visit, saw Jason Isbell and had a great time. Loved the concert AND the venue. We opted to try and get down front standing rather than in the balcony in the seated front row. If you've not been here before it is hard to...More

This venue hosts world famous artists. It was rebuilt after a fire that gutted the place some years ago. It's really nice inside with three levels and bars. Seating is limited. Also be sure to check out the roof top bar.

The rooftop bar has great views, ordinary drinks, and great food. Specifically, their chili cheese fries are good, but the best thing is their white chicken sandwich, it's amazing.

The Georgia Theatre concert venue is a great place to see a show. Some of the perks include clean bathrooms and top notch bartenders. The drinks aren't overpriced considering the caliber of the venue. I would return to see a show here again in the...More

Sure, food and drinks are a tad overpriced, and seating is very limited on the rooftop. I was quickly able to look past that by adapting to whatever was available and, by doing so, meeting very friendly guests. Staff members too are friendly, past how...More

This is an annual stop for us on NYE. The staff is nice and the food is good. On NYE, it would be nice if they had heaters throughout the deck and not just at the bar. The beer is overpriced for Athens. They charge...More

Been attending concerts at the GT going on 25 years now. I kind of liked the old seating better before the fire, but it's still a great venue. Get ready to stand A LOT!! There are very few seats in the upper sections and they...More

Just stopped by for a quick cocktail. Great roof top bar. Rooftop is the way to go. Great energy and very respectful happy patrons. Brought tears to this old man's eyes.

Phenomenal, beautiful venue! I wish I lived closer so I could visit more often! The sound and layout were perfect, the bar and bathroom lines were short and for the most part, the staff was super friendly. My only issue was with the security guy...More

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
