About Park Tavern:

Park Tavern, a favorite neighborhood bar, restaurant, brewery, and events facility, is located on the Atlanta BeltLine in the heart of Midtown on the corner of 10th Street and Monroe overlooking Piedmont Park and the Midtown skyline.  The building was originally built in 1905 as horse stables for local racing enthusiasts and then transformed into a golf clubhouse in 1928. Although expanded and renovated over the years, the building still features some of the original woodwork and stone from the historic clubhouse. Today, Park Tavern combines the historic charm of the site with the modern facilities including handcrafted beers brewed on-site, a full restaurant, expansive patio, private event spaces, a seasonal ice skating rink and more.  The menu features classic favorites such as burgers, tacos, salads and sandwiches as well as a full sushi bar serving a wide variety of fresh sushi rolls.
