Live music unites people from all walks of life, unlike silence, which only unites librarians and people who crack safes. Bond over shared sound waves with today's Groupon to Park Tavern's Americana in the Park concert series. The concert series kicks off on Saturday, September 3 and runs every Wednesday from September 7th through November 9th. Choose from the following options:
- For $5, you get two concert tickets (up to a $30 value).
- For $14, you get two appetizers and two concert tickets (up to a $51.98 value).
- For $29, you get two appetizers and two concert tickets valid for the VIP table under a shaded cabana (up to a $76.98 value).
Each Wednesday, guests tap their toes to classic rhythms under the setting sun during the Park Tavern's Americana in the Park concert series. Local artists belt out tunes across the verdant lawns of Piedmont Park as guests unwind under VIP cabanas—which extend shade to Atlantans, their dogs, and their overheated pet giraffes—or in the open seating of the air-conditioned garden tent. Swing by on September 3 to catch the UGA versus Boise State game on a 10-foot inflatable garden screen as Sam Sniper's and Dodd Ferrelle's harmonies swirl through the open air, or drop in on September 28 for a popular performance by Hoots & Hellmouth and Ocha la Rocha.
As cabana diners look out at the midtown skyline and take in beauteous views of the Atlanta sunset, they can nosh on appetizers from Park Tavern's summery menu of high-end fusion fare, which mixes classic pub grub with east Asian influences. Send pita chips and celery swimming through spinach, crab, and lobster dip (a $10.99 value) like scuba divers diving into a goopy bay inexplicably full of crustacean meat, or sate seafaring cravings with the crispy taste of Georgian bang bang shrimp (a $10.99 value). Herbivorous hankerings can be sated by the mediterranean hummus (a $9.99 value), which spreads across flatbread crackers as smoothly as pudding across a boss's meeting agenda.
The Park Tavern combines the historical grandeur of a century-old locale with the forward-thinking practices of a modern, eco-friendly restaurant. Some of the original woodwork and stone from its past life remains, chronicling the building's history as a horse stable in 1905, a golf clubhouse in 1928, and a space shuttle in 1969. The Tavern’s current layout contains an elegant events space, a dining room with an outdoor terrace, an ice-skating rink, and a live music and festival venue that features the annual Oyster Crawfish Festival.
Adopting green habits, the Tavern's owners developed a rainwater-recycling system to feed its plants and water its landscape, and switched to low-flow plumbing and LEED-certified hand dryers. Its concern for the environment extends to its menu as well: locally harvested ingredients and wild-caught fish support coastal communities and local farms while simultaneously ensuring each plate contains quality, eco-friendly fare. The lineup of dishes includes sushi rolls brimming with sashimi-grade Hawaiian tuna and meaty burgers bursting with fresh-ground Angus beef or great range bison, all of which can be paired with a house microbrew.
