The 4 Best Bike Accessible Bars in Atlanta
Although still a work in progress, Atlanta is slowly, but surely becoming a bike-friendly city. With the recently launched bike share initiative Relay, and events like Atlanta Streets Alive, biking is becoming a serious means of transportation for city-dwellers.
Once I got my bike from Critical Cycles, the first outing I planned was to get drinks with a couple of friends. Since then, I’ve ridden my bike many times and have hit many bars (I mean the weather’s been nice so why not?) and the 4 below are the ones that are the most fun, boozy and easy to get to on a bike:
Victory is hands down one of my favorite bars in Atlanta! The food is delicious and affordable. I can’t get enough of the Cowabunga Dude sandwich and it’s only $4! It’s literally what I eat every time I’m there. The cocktails are tasty, and the Inman Park location is off of the Beltline and my personal favorite place to bike, The PATH.
Opening in 1956, Manny’s Tavern is a true Atlanta staple. The food is incredible and the patrons are mostly old, incredibly friendly Atlantans. Recently renovated, but still full of vintage ATL charm, Manny’s is a straight shot off The Path at North Highland ave. My boyfriend and I love watching the Falcons games there. If you’re following the Presidential run, it’s also the perfect place to watch the debates because it’s a well-known democratic bar.
Tacos and mezcal anyone? Located right off the beltline at Ponce City Market, Minero has one of the most extensive Mezcal bars in Atlanta. Between that and their tasty fare, Minero is definitely a spot to hit on your next bike ride. My personal favorite is the Charcoal Grilled Chicken Wings- I know that sound crazy because it’s a Mexican restaurant, but trust me, they’re INSANE!
4. Jack’s Pizza
Jack’s Pizza is the definition of a true dive bar. Known for their ridiculously amazing pizza by the slice (try the Jason and the soul food slice- you’ll thank me later), and ridiculously cheap drinks, Jack’s is always a good time. It’s situated directly on The Path so it’s super easy to get to.
Needless to say, my Critical Cycles bike has really made for a fun time and has save me a ton of gas money. Check our interview with Critical Cycles founder Ely (a fellow millennial) and be sure to check them out on Instagram and Twitter.
