One of Esquire Magazine's "Best Bars in America"
The Globe was named one of the "Best Bars in America" by Esquire (October 2007), and it's easy to see why. With 14 draught beers, 70 bottled beers, over 50 single malts, 35-40 wines, and a full bar, it would seem that the place doesn't even need a food menu - but it has a great one!
The atmosphere is very cozy, with exposed brick and sofas, rocking chairs, and spacious benches from which one can gaze out onto the streets of downtown Athens. Local art is also displayed throughout the bar, complemented by a black and white mural behind the bar which depicts the production of some of the world's best beverages.
The menu is simple and affordable, featuring mainly soups, salads, and sandwiches, but everything I've had has been great. The laid back vibe and good food complement eachother well, and I would definitely recommend grabbing lunch there if you have time.
