The theater has been in this spot “forever”. Live music performances which change frequently. Some years ago it burned and was completely gutted and restored to its original grandeur. What I especially like is the rooftop bar, you don’t need a ticket to the ter...More

We recently went to a Clutch show at this venue. The staff was very friendly, prices were decent. We liked the layout, it made it easy for even the shortest people to find a good view. We really enjoyed this venue. We will be back.

Service is the name of the game and they'll habe no more of my business. Also be warned they have a strict no refund so if you have any doubts wait to buy your tickets.

We attended a pre-game event on the rooftop bar. It was a nice view of the city and the drinks were delicious. The bartender acted almost like we were invisible or bothering him when placing a drink order.

This was our first concert at the Georgia Theatre in downtown Athens. We really enjoyed the show and the intimate atmosphere of the theatre. The concert was sold out (general admission) so the place was packed. It is standing room only, with a few tables...More
