Since opening, The Old Pal has been named one of the “South’s Best Bars” by Southern Living Magazine and has also 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 4 years in a row by the readers of Flagpole Magazine, Athens’ alternative weekly newspaper.
