Summer in Atlanta means spending lots of time outside and enjoying the beautiful weather of the city. To get ready for all the fun summer nights, here are some awesome outdoor bars to check out in Atlanta this summer!
1. Hand In Hand
Hand in hand has been one of my favorite places for years. It’s located in the heart of Virginia Highlands, which is one of the trendiest places in the city. The bar is half indoors and half outside so if you’re too hot you can always go back inside.
2. Glenn’s Sky Lounge
This upscale rooftop bar has incredible views that you can’t get anywhere else in the city. It’s located in downtown as a part of the Glenn hotel and overlooks centennial park, giving you an amazing view of the downtown skyline. There is a cover fee to go up to the roof, but it’s totally worth it for the spectacular Atlanta view!
3. PURE Taqueria Brookhaven
This is one of the trendiest spots in Brookhaven right now, so add to it your list of places you have to check out! It’s a bar and restaurant so you can have dinner and drinks there. They have a huge patio and rooftop patio so you can enjoy the beautiful weather. This place is always popping, which means that it’s worth spending an evening there!
4. Six Feet Under
Located in Grant Park in downtown Atlanta, this bar is one of the favorites of the whole area. It’s an Irish pub house, so it’s a different experience than other bars in the city. This bar is known for its incredible views of the city skyline, so it’s a great place to take pictures with your friends too! The food there has gotten amazing reviews so you definitely need to check out this place this summer!
5. New Realm Brewery
The Atlanta Beltline has really been a hot place recently, which means that there are plenty of awesome bars along the path now! New Realm Brewery is one of the best Beltline spots and a local favorite. What’s great about this outdoor bar is that you can walk on the Beltline before or after and check out other places too. This brewery has been top rated by many critics so you have to go there this summer!
6. Treehouse Pub
If you want to feel like you’ve been transported into a fantastical woodsy world, look no further than the Treehouse pub! It’s located in Buckhead near the Lindberg area, which is such a cool part of town. This place has lots of drinks but also serves delicious food so you can make a night out going there!
7. Bartaco West Midtown
There are many Bartaco locations all over Atlanta, but this one by far is the best because of the huge, chic patio! The white and blue color scheme is so summery, so you’ll want to spend the whole night out there! This place is always mobbed because it’s so awesome, so be aware you may have to wait. However, it’s such a great experience that it’s totally worth the wait!
8. Bar Amalfi
This beachy outdoor bar will make you feel like you’re on the Amalfi coast of Italy! The beach style decor will make you feel relaxed and in the spirit of summer. Not only do they have incredible unique drinks, but they also have delicious Italian inspired eats too! This place is one of the most amazing Atlanta finds, so make sure you have a night with your friends there!

I've got a case of wanderlust, I'll never stop traveling because my goal is to go to every single continent. I've made it to four out of seven so far. I graduated from Emory University in May of 2018 with a degree in English and Political Science. I will be attending law school this fall but in the meantime I write, travel, and love to be outside in nature.
