Both locations are known for offering a ritzier take on the sports bar atmosphere: humidors packed with stogies, private rooms, high-quality booze and bites, a classy stained-wood interior with plush seating, and plump plates of your favorite tailgate fare make for a grown man’s game-day paradise, without the ticket price.
Even if you’ve personally never been, you know someone who has, and they haven’t missed your ass for a second. That’s because however high the price of drinks and food, and however scantily clad the waitstaff, nobody’s ever mad at you for saying you’re headed here to watch “the game” -- even if there is no actual athletic competition other than the one on the mechanical bull. There’s always a game at the U Bar.
Forty HDTVs, 20 local beers (including five Monday Nights, four Terrapins, three from Orpheus), a game room with pool and Pac-Man, and a spread-out patio in case you want outside air, make this tucked-away Peachtree sports spot a proud continuation of what was once Cheyenne Grill.
