Park Bench was first opened in 1994 with the inauguration of its very first location in the center of Old Buckhead on East Paces. In July 2011 Park Bench went bigger and better, opening the doors to the state-of-the-art 5,000 square foot Buckhead location on Irby Ave. The new space is even better than our original home, boasting an outdoor patio, a grill, live music every week and just about the most welcoming wait and bar staff in the city. You can count on Park Bench being a hopping Buckhead spot to have a bite and a brew every every Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
This casual but modern bar is known for serving up great drinks and great times every night. The interior is modern but still homey, with well-used wooden floors and splashes of color on the walls. Three bars, including the long main bar are spacious and fully stocked with booze and bartenders to ensure that you don’t wait forever to get something to sip on or shoot! If you get a little overheated from hanging out in the main room of Park Bench head out back to the Backyard to party on the open-air patio. With its own bar manned by two bartenders, a grill serving up hot dogs and hamburgers and a rockin sound system, this spot is a perfect part of Park Bench to just chill.
With so many options, it’s clear that Park Bench is an ideal spot to party. If you have your own celebration idea, this beloved watering hole is no stranger to birthday parties, bachelor/bachelorette parties, corporate happy hours or just a group of friends with a big night in mind. Book an event with us and enjoy live music, or even bring in your own band. We can also make events semi-private and have a bar for exclusive use of your party.
Whether you’re coming for the incredible live bands or plan to hang out in the Back Yard, you definitely came to the right place to have a great night. Park Bench has practically owned the reputation for being the Atlanta spot for good drinks, good friends, and good times. We won’t disappoint!
