Ahhhhh. Feel that warm weather in the South. Who wants to be cooped up in a bar all day? Not Atlantans, so that is why games like cornhole are popular at bars around town in the spring and into the fall. Cornhole isn’t just a game for taligaters anymore. You can get some practice in before the college football tailgate season starts at various spots around town. This game was previously mentioned in the article “Best Bars With Drinking Games In Atlanta,” but in this one we put our focus on solely cornhole.

Park Tavern
500 10th St. N.E.
Atlanta, GA 30309
(404) 249-0001
www.parktavern.com

Not only is the Park Tavern a legendary restaurant and hangout in Atlanta, but it’s also ground zero for cornhole and cornhole leagues in Atlanta. Cornhole has taken off in the South and there are more cornhole players in leagues in the Southeast than anywhere else in the U.S. The Park Tavern has been known for its brunches, holding special events and its location adjacent to Piedmont Park. Now with cornhole games set up and waiting for you, it’s the perfect place to be on a beautiful Atlanta day.

Table & Main
1028 Canton St.
Roswell, GA 30075
(678) 869-5178

Not only does Table & Main offer great food and drink, but it also offers cornhole. With cornhole set up on the side patio, you can eat, drink, be merry and play cornhole all at the same time. As the weather gets warmer, it’s time to try Table & Main’s spring and summer menu. Remember, Table & Main uses ingredients and products from farms right here in Georgia, so you know everything will be fresh. Cornhole is a nice unique touch for this great restaurant right in the heart of Roswell.

Buckhead Saloon
3227 Roswell Road N.E.
Atlanta, GA 30305
(404) 963-7739
www.buckheadsaloonatlanta.com

It’s Buckhead’s biggest patio and it’s one of the best cornhole venues in the city. The Buckhead Saloon is a great location for your next night out, party or special event. The Buckhead Saloon is also one of the top venues when it comes to hosting cornhole tournaments in the city. Playing cornhole with friends at a tailgate is one thing, but playing in a structured tournament is another. The Buckhead Saloon is all about good food, a variety of drinks, music, cornhole and fun with your best buds.

Decatur, GA 30030

Fresh seafood and local brews are the stars of the menu at the Harbour House Pub, but it’s also one of the most popular destinations to play cornhole in Atlanta. A top drawer chef and a great staff will tend to all of your needs. Live music on Friday and Saturday nights will be your soundtrack as you play cornhole against your foes. There’s plenty of parking in a good location in Decatur, so come out and have some fun.

Atkins Park

Smyrna, GA 30080

Competitive cornhole and a great place to hang out with friends is what you get at Atkins Park in Smyrna. Atkins Park is an institution in Atlanta not only for those who like a bar atmosphere, but for foodies as well. Enjoy some Gulf oysters or the Georgia trout in between games of cornhole. Atkins Park is more than just seafood, so take a look at the dinner or late-night menus and order whatever you like. It’s all good!
