“Everyone has that one place downtown that just can’t be neglected during a night out. It’s inevitable that a friend will find you at this beloved favorite bar if you’re mysteriously missing from the pack you headed out with. That said, insights to your personality can no doubt be gained when you tell a fellow Athenian which bar is your “spot.” Which bar have you placed your claims on?
Bourbon Street– you are a freshman (at heart)
I would bet that this is the first bar you ever stepped foot into. You’re emotionally attached, what can you say? You may find yourself here as a senior, throwing up in the upstairs bathroom on your birthday, but you wouldn’t have it any other way – Bourbon has your heart. Where else would you get such cheap drinks on the weekends?
9d’s – you’re the one who came for a good time
You probably dragged your friends here (congrats, especially if those friends are guys). But in defense of your pleading, you just wanted to show them how much fun the place really can be – if you ignore the sweat, stench of body odor, and overwhelming number of guys you’ve never seen before who really want to dance with you. But hey, who cares about all that? You’re probably too drunk by the time you get here to even notice all that! You just want to dance!
Flanagan’s – you’re a socialite
If you came downtown hoping to “run into” your ex, you’ll be posted up at Flan’s. He’s here. Everyone’s here. If by the time you push your way through the crowd to get the bar you haven’t hugged (or kissed) that girl that was in your PR class, that guy that sat next to you in English, and Ryan from the bus, then lucky you. However, you might be upset if this doesn’t happen, because going dt is all about seeing everyone you know, and getting pictures to prove it.
Toppers – you are “adventurous”
I applaud you, my friend. Have fun.
Wonderbar – you are a child at heart
You came to get drunk, and you also came to kill someone in Mario Kart. Video games are your calling, and always have been, whether you’ll openly admit it or not. You really just want to play Pokémon on the big screen projector so that everyone there can admire you for your master of the video game controller. But you do also want to take countless shots as you conquer.
Magnolia’s – you’re classy as f*ck
Either that, or you’re old. You walk into the place like you own it, and then proceed to buy shots for you and all of your friends. And maybe even for those girls standing over there, too. Even after these shots and more, you hold yourself together. If you’re about to get sloppy, you know it’s time to make your way elsewhere.
Boar’s Head – you’re hip
The thing is, you might be in a sorority or fraternity, but you like to take a step away from the Greek life comfort zone and see what kind of townies you can run into in Boar’s Head. I bet your friends are in a band.
Sandbar – you’re a wanderer
There are so many levels and so many people. People everywhere. It’s so easy to slip away from your friends for a second, just real quick, to wander away and see if you can catch the eye of that cute bartender. And that’s why you love this place. You probably also love frozen drinks- especially on Thursdays, if you’re a girl. Either that, or you’re looking to forget the rest of your night and choose to order a blackout bucket for yourself.
Cozy Bar – I literally don’t even know who you are
You just want to take a sake bomb. I’ll take one with you, as long as we both agree to make disgusted faces afterwards.
General Beauregard’s – you are a true Southerner
You’ve got that Southern drawl. The country music and sweet tea keeps you feeling right at home with your friend, but all y’all are missing is some pecan pie. When you see a girl without cowboy boots on, all you think to yourself is ‘bless her heart!’ Everyone’s singing along to Brad Paisley together and you wouldn’t want to be anywhere else in the world.
Silver Dollar – you’re a football team groupie
Bourbon used to be your go-to bar, but now that the football team’s new hangout is Silver, it’s yours as well. You know the football players by name, and they know you. When you pass by them on campus, you can’t decide if you’re flattered or embarrassed by their yells toward you, but either way you secretly love it.
On the Rocks – you are a frat/srat star
You see OTR as your home away from home. It’s like an expanded version of Flanagan’s, only every person here is Greek- no exceptions. When you walk in, you immediately begin looking for prospective date night options. You’ll find the rest of your pledge class doing the same in the back, and you run into just about every person you know who lives on Milledge. The idea of naming another bar your favorite sends a shiver up your spine!
Whiskey Bent – you like to dance on tables and make out with randos (and it’s probably on UGA Makeouts)
Whiskey is not for the weak. You’re strong enough to fight through the crowd, stand in the mile-long line for the bathroom, and even deal with that sticky black stuff dripping onto your head from the ceiling. It’s all worth dancing on the tables, though. You came here to have a good time and get a kiss (or two) from a guy/girl (or 8) that you just met.”
