One of my favorite bars in Athens. There's kind of a natural divide between the student and townie sections of the city and quality often follows accordingly. Blue Sky is a marked exception. Tucked away on the second floor on Broad Street and overlooking the historic North Campus of the University of Georgia, Blue Sky is a true gem.

The beer selection is one of the best in the city (a touch short of Trapeze) and somewhat more expensive than other local haunts, but it's worth the price. Small, homey bar with an exceptional back patio section that connects with the coffee shop/bar below (Walkers, which is also worth checking out).

Staff is fantastic. Very attentive, helpful bartenders and the owner is fantastic. On many occasions, he'll pull out a special bottle to share with regulars or just anyone that happens to be in the bar. Everyone knows their stuff.

Good happy hour ($1 off everything from like 3-7), fun specials events, and you can order food from the tapas place next door (speakeasy).

If you're in Athens, stop by.

I'd be remiss if I didn't review this cozy bar in the great town of Athens, GA. Directly across the famed Arch and right above Walker's Coffee is Blue Sky Bar, a quaint watering hole unencumbered with the masses of sloven and drunk underclassmen. This is the bar where I learned the ropes and honed my craft beer game. Blue Sky boasts a world class bottle list. The atmosphere is cozy, dark, and upscale. The bartenders are friendly. It's pretty low key and chill on weeknights and usually gets a good crowd on weekends. The only con is that they don't have anything on tap, however their impressive bottle list makes up for that. One of the best bars in Athens. Great location, great staff, great vibe. If you're a beer lover be sure to check them out.
