The 8 Best Bars to Celebrate the New Year in Georgia!

The Peach State is hosting some of the most epic New Year’s Eve parties you can find. Drink specials, live music, and festive food make the perfect sendoff to the past year. And if you know where to go, you can do it all in style. Say hello to the new year at one of these awesome bars to celebrate NYE in Georgia! 

1. The Porter Beer Bar, Atlanta, GA

Low-key and laid back, this beer bar in Little Five Points has its doors open until 2:30 a.m. New Year’s Eve, giving you one of the best places to party in the city. While they aren’t planning a lavish extravaganza, they do offer over 800 beers to choose from. You can also expect better-than-bar food since you can’t live off beer alone.

And this, although I never sit back here, is the magical pace that I love so much. @theporterbeerbar
