Welcome to The Old Pal

Established in 2013, The Old Pal is a neighborhood bar located in the Normaltown district of Athens, GA.  We offer a seasonal drinks menu with a focus on classic cocktails, craft beers, and Old World wines along with a well-rounded whiskey list. 

Southern Living Magazine named The Old Pal one of the "South's Best Bars" for 2016 and we've since been recognized by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution as "Best of the Southeast."  We've received press from the likes of The Washington Post, Tales of the Cocktail, and The Local Palate, and we're honored to be considered "Athens Favorite Bar for Specialty Drinks" for 3 years in a row by the readers of Flagpole Magazine, Athens' alternative weekly newspaper.
