“Fantastic Venue”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

The Georgia Theater is a historic hallmark of Athens. It has had and continues to have some great shows. The redesign after a fire several years ago is both artistic and functional. And the new rooftop bar is a great spot to hangout whether there is a show going on below or not.

“great music venue”
Reviewed 20 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

I have seen many concerts here. This historic art deco theatre was totally redone after a fire a few years ago. It came back better thsn ever and with a new rooftop bar catered by the excellent Branded Butcher restaurant next door. A gem of this music city. At this particular visit we saw Sol Driven Train.

“Dont Use Your Debit Card”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

I have been going to the Georgia Theater for the past ten years, and have really enjoyed the new rooftop venue that has opened since the reconstruction. However, since my bank account was double charged during my last visit, causing me to overdraft my account, I have had to make the heartbreaking decision to never return.
When businesses can not operate properly it is out responsibility to hold them accountable. Get it together GA Theater, no other bars, in Athens, double charge, why do you think it is okay for you to.

Disappointed Athenian

This is common practice. Your card get's authorized for the pre-tip amount, and the the post-tip amount. Then the pre-tip authorization drops off and only the post-tip amount stays. If you don't have enough in your account to cover both charges your bank will hit you with overdraft fees. We don't make the rules. Complain to your bank or bring cash next time.

“Rooftop views and Live music”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

We went here for a quick drink but then happened upon a live concert. It was great lots of room to jitterbug and sing loud with friends. The rooftop was great as well, perfect seating to escape the busy downtown.

“Great bar food with a twist”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

Excellent view of Athens from above at this sweet bar/restaurant above the GA Theatre. Interesting menu with amazing fried chicken skins and pimento goat cheese apps, a tasty veggie bahn mi, great tacos, ruebens and burgers amongst other tasty choices. Prices are very reasonable and they even have bands once in a while, out in the open air.
