At Midtown’s new premiere game watch location, doors will open for a la carte food and drink at 3pm on Sunday, February 3rd, and the grand opening party will begin at 4:30pm. Guests can reserve tickets by emailing info.atlanta@citytap.com, priced at $150 including an open beer and wine bar, soft drinks, all-you-can-eat game-day favorites like sliders, nachos, crab and corn hushpuppies, wood-fired pizza, and more. During the night, attendees can watch the game, discuss plays, and take photos with Gridiron Legends for a once in a lifetime experience. Complimentary valet will also be available for ticketed guests.

When City Tap opens next month, Executive Chef Greg Gettles will oversee the kitchen and serve a food menu of inventive and craveworthy dishes such as Elote “Street Corn” Dip with jalapeño, chili powder, cotija, cilantro, and chips; Ten-Spice Wings with blue cheese ranch and crisp vegetables; and Honey & Goat Cheese Wood-Fired Pizza with sliced red onion, pistachio pesto, rosemary, and truffle honey. Those dishes pair with City Tap’s extensive beer list, featuring many picks from local breweries like Monday Night Brewing, Orpheus Brewing, Wild Heaven Beer, SweetWater Brewery, and New Realm Brewing, alongside international offerings.

City Tap’s location in Midtown includes 10,000 square feet of restaurant space with a covered patio, an expansive mezzanine with a full bar and two private dining spaces, and first-floor dining with seating for over 100. The design draws inspiration from City Tap’s signature aesthetic, with a mix of rustic and industrial elements including iron framework, reclaimed wood, and copper and stone bars. Alongside the front of the restaurant is a brick patio featuring a firepit and lounge-style seating, and around the corner, a double-sided bar opens to the interior on one side and onto a long patio for al fresco dining.
