    If the answer is plenty of beer, wine, spirits, and food like corn dogs with sriracha mayonnaise and fish and chips, then Ormsby’s in West Midtown is the place to go. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Creative Loafing Atlanta
    Ormsby's is a favorite of locals looking for an extensive craft beer list and a unique gastropub menu. There's also a downstairs game room with bocce ball, shuffleboard, billiards and more.
  • Creative Loafing Atlanta
    Order craft beer or a stiff liquor drink. After a couple of those, everyone you encounter playing shuffleboard, darts, and pool will feel like a friend from your former Greek life. Read more

    We love this spot! You just have to take a bus to get here (if you don't have a car). Hop on bus 12 at the Midtown station or bus 1 at Five Points. Read more

    The absence of signage and a secluded entrance below the district's main walkway suggest this gastropub relishes the secrecy of yesteryear’s speakeasies. Read more

    They have Bacce ball in the basement along with a bunch of other games. Be wary: it gets packed on weekends. The crowd is mid-to-late twenties. Great beer list.

    First say hi to Chewie at the door then eat a great meal upstairs before going downstairs to take part in bocce, pool, darts, skee ball and of course sample the amazing beer list! Try an Adventinus!

    Come for the drinks, stay for the corn dogs with sriracha mayo! Pool, darts and other bar games are also available at this bottle brew establishment.

    The official watering hole for team Bottlecap. If you come by our office on a Friday afternoon and nobody is there, we're here brewing ideas and playing Bocce Ball with some help from Hopsecutioner.
  • Scott G.
    One of my favorite bars -- they've got shuffleboard, darts and board games. Great for drinks and hanging out with any size group

    Come on Friday (or Saturday too I believe) for the steak. Very worth it. I didn't really think this place would have a good steak, but I was wrong & I'm glad I was.

    Overrated, but they have Duvel on tap so it's not a total waste.
