?Here?s to you, Andrew Volstead, NICE TRY!? The owners of The Volstead have good reason to raise a toast to this congressman, who famously passed the prohibition laws in the 1920s: he became the inspiration for everything their bar and restaurant wouldn?t be. To show their appreciation for libations, the team took great pains to restore the space to reflect the way it originally looked in 1893??the height of the American saloon era. But while the decorative archways, pressed tin ceiling, and William McKinley impersonators evoke the gilded age, the bar also holds a few modern twists. An ice rail runs along the wooded bar top to help keep cocktails and brews cold while draft beers are poured out at a 32 degree temperature and shots are shot back at a bone-chilling 5 degrees. Just under 100 guests can cozy into indoor tables and bar seating to enjoy weekly karaoke or trivia nights or linger on the outdoor patio as they gaze upon a handful of TVs and the large projection screen, which showcases Sunday football games and date-night movies.

Back in the kitchen, Chef David Perez leads a skilled culinary team as they handcraft 12 types of half-pound burgers, classic sandwiches, and 14 different appetizers to help create what part-owner Brian Holloway described to the Online Athens Banner-Herald as "a casual eating experience with an upscale feel." Black Angus beef patties are crowned with a variety of toppings, from jalape?o-pimento cheese and sliced hot dogs to fried eggs, while other hearty entrees include beer-battered fish and a 10-ounce rib-eye steak. Savory eats can also be consumed during the restaurant?s Sunday brunch, which serves up plates of shrimp and grits, ham and cheese omelets, and a pair of Elvis pancakes which arrived painted onto a velvet plate.

At Havana South Restaurant and Bar, a conga line of authentic Cuban entrees parades out of the kitchen, transporting diners to the Caribbean with dishes such as picadillo a la Cubana and ropa vieja in criolle sauce. The chef draws on his culinary experience to populate the menu with true Cuban cuisine.

Meanwhile, drink enthusiasts can marvel at servers using guava, mango, and passion fruit to brew up refreshing batches of house-made mojitos. The tropical flavor carries over to the eatery's decor as well. A life-size painting of palm trees and domino players on the beach may fool diners into thinking that they're dining on the coast, whereas crimson-hued walls compliment heated salsa nights that are speckled throughout the eatery?s event schedule. Spanish music constantly pours from the speakers, inspiring guests to get up and dance, a practice encouraged by the staff.

After their game, guests can explore the facility’s remaining 4,000 square feet, which house an arcade with more than 20 games and a concession stand stocked with snacks and drinks.
