1. Hand in Hand 752 N Highland Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30306 (Virginia Highland)

With black and gold trim and a Victorian-style interior, Atkins Park's Hand In Hand is the closest thing you'll find to an actual English pub in Atlanta. Daily specials send prices through the floor so you won't break the bank if you venture outside the fried mushroom and deviled egg snacks and head straight for the classic bangers and mash or a New York strip. There's usually a few tables available on the wrap-around patio, and they've got plenty of space for your whole group, their plates, and their frosty imported pints.

An Inman Park wine bar complete with unvarnished paneling, a brick fireplace, and a shaded wraparound patio, Barcelona delivers Spanish flair to Atlanta with more than 200 wines straight from Spain and, of course, tapas. In small portions, cozy couples at lantern-lit tables and big groups in polished booths split small plates of spicy roasted vegetables, rice, and meats like chorizo and thick cuts of grilled lamb.

7. Six Feet Under Pub & Fish House, Westside 685 11th St NW, Atlanta, GA 30318 (Home Park)

The Westside outpost of Six Feet Under Pub & Fish House is home to exactly what it boasts in its name: beer and seafood. The Southern-inflected menu features a bivalve heavy raw bar, a variety of seafood soups -- like fish stew, chowder, and gumbo -- seafood-centric sandwiches and platters, as well as cornmeal-crusted, deep-fried shrimp, catfish, or oyster baskets, all served with chips, jalapeño tartar sauce, and jalapeño hush puppies. Enjoy the bounty of the sea with any of two dozen rotating draft beers, and take in the unparalleled views of Atlanta’s skyline from the outdoor rooftop bar.
