5 Ways to Feed Your Fan Side

Looking to shake up your game-day routine? Here are five spots around town to indulge your senses while the whistle blows. Leave the rowdy bars to the college kids; these spots offer a refined game-watching experience.

Hampton + Hudson

Hampton + Hudson’s digs in Virginia-Highland make for a prime place to stay perched on game day.

 

1. Hampton + Hudson
NIBBLE Hangover fries topped with corn, white bean salsa, melted cheese curds and sunny-side up egg SIP Pink Suede Shoes, a bubbly concoction of vodka, lemon, hibiscus syrup and sparkling rosé POST UP The neighborhood bar lures you in with its sunny environs and invites you to stay awhile with chef-driven pub grub. Don’t miss out on the patio once those temps drop! @hamptonhudson

2. Live! at the Battery Atlanta
NIBBLE Georgia peanut butter chicken wings. Careful, they’re delicious but messy! SIP Keep it light and refreshing with the Kentucky Mule. POST UP The Battery Atlanta is not just for baseball. Grab a bite at Todd English Tavern, and then head to the adjacent Sports & Social for a game-watching experience like no other on the 30-foot LED screen. @livebatteryatl

3. Torched Hop Brewing Company
NIBBLE The Forbidden fried rice made with Simply Seoul kimchee, scallions, melted leek and a fried egg SIP Georgia on My Mind, a foreign extra stout beer with coffee and cacao nibs POST UP Known for its house-brewed beer, Torched Hop offers a convivial atmosphere with games and tasty bites to enjoy while rooting for your team. Go on Monday night for Burger Monday: $10 for a classic double, fries and a house draft. @torchedhopbrewing

4. Ration & Dram
NIBBLE Braised pork belly with creamy grits, poached eggs, chorizo and apple butter pork jus SIP When you want beer and a cocktail, order The Last “Gose” Around, made with Diep 9 genever, green Chartreuse, lime juice and Second Self Maverick & Gose. POST UP The hipster locale may not scream game day, and that’s exactly why you should go. Chill vibes, craft cocktails and TVs on two levels make for the perfect low-key setting to catch the game. @rationanddram

5. 101 Steak
NIBBLE Go big with the Delmonico steak and a side of SweetWater beer-battered onion rings. SIP The Trashley, a tropical blend of coconut rum, pineapple coconut mix, crushed pineapple, angostura bitters and soda POST UP The elegant Vinings steakhouse has several TVs, including one at the bar, but you should bring the squad and rent out the Wine Room for game-watching in style. It holds 10 people, has its own television and the chefs will come up with team-oriented specials just for you and your crew. @101steak
