I went with my boyfriend to the tavern for a first date. We sat up in the balconly and were able to see everything. I have been here other times and have sat on the ground floor. I have also had food there and everything is great. This is a great night out. We park over at the Emory hospital parking garage across the street and then walk to the tavern. It is a wonderful experience. They plays are exceptional and the actors are professional. If you live in or vist Atlanta, make sure you go to the tavern.

The New Shakespeare Tavern in downtown Atlanta offers original practice Shakespeare productions (and pub dinners) with thrilling performances and an audience-friendly atmosphere. Good wine and beer comes with the pre-play dinners. The performers are a highly talented, stable ensemble; they dance, sing and play — very well. Play and dinner costs are low — as well as the parking across the street. This season they will become the first US company to have done the entire Shakespeare repertory — third in the world along with the Royal Shakespeare Company and Shakespeare's own company. Also a dating place for lots of young people...

The Atlanta Shakespeare Tavern offers some of the finest small company performances found anywhere. Their love of their work provides theater goers, seasoned and novice, with engaging and occasionally participatory entertainment. The large selection of fine wines and beers make for a true tavern experience. Good food and volunteer staff round out some of the best entertainment of its type.

Atlanta Shakespeare Tavern has it all -- witty repartee of Shakespeare comedies, masterful performances of the tragedies, but also ridiculously fun parodies (don't miss Canterbury Tales and Hamlet the Musical if they do them again next year!), all in a warm intimate atmosphere of a tavern where you enjoy your food and drink at a small table while watching the play. Atlanta Shakespeare Tavern's A Christmas Carol comes with wonderful music peformed by their multi-talented troupe! Their "original practice" style of acting draws the audience into the play - don't worry about the language being difficult to follow -- the actors make sure the audience stays involved. And I do love those wonderful desserts during intermission!
