Get to know Downtown

Downtown is the heart and soul of Athens. There are more than 65 specialty retailers, 55 eateries and 40 bars, all within a few square blocks of each other.

Athens may be a small town, but it packs a big punch. Known throughout the country for its thriving music scene, there are several great music venues and vinyl shops in town, including The 40 Watt, The Melting Point and The Georgia Theatre (recently rebuilt). There is great music, interesting art, and amazing food everywhere you look!
