Over the next few weeks, we’ll take you on a journey through the bars of Athens, GA. Join us while we share our unfiltered opinions and greatest tips for obtaining booze in this lovely college town.

First up is The Capital Room. This bar is slightly out of the way at its location in the Georgian Hotel (247 East Washington St.). The perks of this are that the bar is usually not that crowded and the clientele don’t really fit into any specific social categories.

One thing to keep in mind about this bar is that they serve food. They have a full menu available until around 11pm most nights. This is important because it means that the Capital Room joins Taco Stand, The Globe, Trapeze, and Walker’s as a possible place to go out to on a Sunday night because of Georgia’s lovely blue laws.

The specials tend to be rather good—though, there are some strange time restrictions for a majority of them. $3 specialty cocktails and $2 martinis on Mondays are a nice highlight. $1 Taco Tuesdays are also quite grand. You can check out the full list of specials after the jump.

Because of the location, the bar has some nice architectural flourishes. Though, you probably won’t be able to notice them since the lights get lowered to a remarkably dim level at a certain point in the night. Though, I can get past the lighting because this bar is comfortable, low-key, and not very loud.

This bar is definitely worth checking out. I would suggest giving the specials a glance before you head there so you can get the time-restricted specials since they’re the bigger discounts.
