The home of the Atlanta Shakespeare Company, the Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse on Peachtree Street has an enchanting history and a prime location in downtown Atlanta. We are a professional theatre with food and drinks available before each performance (and don't forget the apple crisp at intermission!)

Perfect for a unique date night! Get there early, all seats are good but the upper seats are tight if you are going to eat. Seats can be uncomfortable for long plays. Great atmosphere, wonderful host and performers. An Atlanta MUST!

Heard from a friend that we should check this out for something different to do in Atlanta. I'll admit I've never really gone to a Shakespeare Play, we were in for a treat. The acting was spectacular, and they really got the audience involved. They...More

It can be a cool date or friends night out. The theater is fun, interesting. The play was good, but the food served is fair. I would return again because of the environment and the plays.

After many years of regular visits to Atlanta, we finally got to the Shakespeare Tavern. And what a wonderful evening we had. Amazingly, this company produces plays all year long with only a one week break between Christmas and the New Year. Most productions appear...More

I have been to four productions at the Shakespeare Tavern in the past 6 months. The current production of Midsummer's Night Dream shows the depth of the actors talent in this company. Great food, great service and tremendous entertainment.
