Private Dining: 5Church Atlanta
This trendy American eatery boasts a massive space adorned with quotes from The Art of War, but its real art is hosting parties. The whole restaurant is available for rent for events, with the satellite Buffalo Room and UFO Room serving smaller crowds. Food and drink packages incorporate popular menu items like charred octopus, lamb burgers, and for those with cash to burn, Wagyu ribeye (which runs a cool $15/ounce).
Karaoke: Karaoke Melody
If getting on stage and belting out your favorite tune is too intimidating, consider a private room at one of this karaoke spot’s two locations, which run $5 per person per hour Monday through Thursday, and $6 on weekends. Rooms vary in size, but each features an iPad-based system with thousands of songs to choose from, as well as TVs and sofas for a crowd. There’s also a full bar and a menu of snacks like dumplings and fries.
Bowling: The Painted Pin
This boutique spot in a former warehouse is definitely a cut above your childhood bowling alley. It boasts 20 lanes equipped with cushy leather couches, with shoes and balls delivered directly by the staff. Each lane accommodates six bowlers for $25/hour Monday-Thursdays, and $35/hour on weekends. Between frames, you can enjoy a game of shuffleboard, skee ball, or ping pong, or grab a taco and a Moscow Mule slushie from the bar.
Trivia Night: The Independent
Unlike most bars, The Independent offers trivia night not once, but three times a week. Each night has its own trivia topic and drink specials: Tuesday is general interest with $2 High Lifes, Wednesday is music with $3 well drinks, and Thursday is movies. Celebrate your victory with a round of pool, or order up one of the famous fried Twinkies. Fair warning: smoking indoors is allowed here, which could be a plus or a minus, depending on your group.
Urban Breweries: Red Brick Company
For a relaxing and fun day with your crew, head over to Atlanta’s oldest craft brewery, where the $12 tours (7pm Wednesday and Friday, 7:30pm Thursday. 1pm and 4pm Saturday, 3pm Sunday) include a six-beer tasting and a souvenir pint glass. The tasting room has a lot of open space for mingling, and there’s trivia night on Thursdays and live music on Friday nights and Saturday afternoons. If you’ve got a really big group, you can even rent out the brewery’s warehouse, which is stocked with bourbon barrels for aging and can accommodate a full band or a buffet.
