What happens when you have a perennial SEC contender and one of the South’s coolest, quirkiest and most musically-rich college towns? Athens happens. And, back in the day, it really HAPPENED too! Legendary joints, along with equally-legendary barkeepers, dotted the landscape in the 70s, 80s and 90s, and places like T.K. Harty’s, O’Malley’s, Odyssey and Uptown Lounge ruled. There were many, many more places that showcased amazing live music, strong drinks and epic good times. Here are just a few for your consideration. Rule the Game Day fun this year and impress your friends!
