It’s like Atlanta was built for hosting events. As a huge airport hub with tons of space, it’s the city’s bread and butter. We expect lots of fancy gatherings, fundraisers, and corporate parties to take place around Atlanta during the week of the Super Bowl.
If you’re a real big timer, you can rent out top spots like the Georgia Aquarium, The Fernbank Museum of Natural History, or the Fox Theatre for your shindig – though other large companies may already have dibs. So we’re skipping the typical spots to give you a few ideas for where to host your corporate Super Bowl parties, dinners, and charity events in Atlanta. It all depends on the atmosphere you’re going for…
The Solarium at Old Scottish Rite. Built in 1915, this former children’s hospital is now a charming historic event space in Decatur. Great for a party or sit-down dinner, you can take advantage of the porch if the Atlanta weather is holding up. The Solarium has room for a 200-person cocktail reception or a 150-person seated dinner, and you can bring whatever caterers you want. There’s lots of space in the gardens and they’ve hosted several community events in this cute little red-roofed building.
The Wimbish House. This impressive old house in Midtown was once the home of a prominent local attorney. Designed by Atlanta’s most famous architect, W.T. Downing, the chateauesque style makes it an iconic landmark. Perfect for galas, corporate events, and parties, The Wimbish House is elegant and flexible. They’ve got their own full-service kitchen for catering, a dance floor with room for a DJ or band, and a prime location on Peachtree Street. And it’s right next to the famous Opera Nightclub if that interests you…
The Trolley Barn. Opened in 1889, The Trolley Barn was built to house Atlanta’s first electric railway cars. It’s also been a church, farmers market, basketball court, and an antique repair business through the years. The Inman Park facility was recently renovated and restored to its former glory, with a mesquite flooring and exposed wooden beams suitable for dancing… if that’s in your Super Bowl weekend plans. With 2,750 square feet and a big brick patio, it’s perfect for business or more, uh, celebratory events.
The Warren City Club. This place is great for cocktail parties or seated dinners if you want someone else to take care of all the details so you don’t have to. The club offers a bar, dinner menus, cocktails, and hors-d’oeuvres set in the Virginia-Highland neighborhood. The turn-of-the-century building offers views from the third story, exposed brick walls, high ceilings, a garden terrace, and several fireplaces.
Atlanta Fish Market. For the foodies among you, this is a great place to plan a dinner if you’re really all about the cuisine. The Atlanta Fish Market can host 200 mingling people for a reception-style gathering or up to 160 for a dinner. Their packages include specially-tailored meals in their “Savannah-casual” atmosphere, whether you want upscale or laid back. Expect custom-printed menus, audio-visual equipment (if you need a projector), and of course, fresh seafood.
Park Tavern. Last year, they hosted a viewing party for the Super Bowl with drink specials, tailgate-style food, and a huge screen on the patio, so we’re only assuming that they could help you throw a similar sort of event. Or maybe something fancier… because the Park Tavern has a couple of rooms you can rent out. It’s got history, an ivy-covered stone facade, and remnants of the original horse stables from 1905 hidden around this restaurant. They’re known for their sushi and casual local fare, but it’s a great place for a barbecue or formal dining too!
Custom bourbon bars are one of our personal favorites! 🥃 #bourbontasting #smallbatchbourbon #corporateparty #networking #atlanta #atl #atlantaweddingvenue #atlantaeventvenue #industrial #industrialchic #industrialvenue #weddingdecor #weddinglocation #atlwedding #atlweddings #atlevents #atlvenues #terminus330 #reception #atlantabride #atlbride #southernbride #southernweddings #cocktailhour #speakeasy
Terminal West. A former 1930s factory turned concert venue that’s available for private events, Terminal West offers a bar, catering, parking, and a customizable space. This place is pretty large and in charge (Coca-Cola, Salesforce, Uber, and Rolling Stone have booked events here), so they also offer production, audio, lighting, and branding teams to really boost your company or charity’s image and throw a hell of a party.
The Space at Grant Park. This minimalist venue comes with pre-packaged options for parties and they’ve even got a list of recommended DJs. It’s also great for corporate workshops or nerdy startup events like hackathons (because the wifi is excellent). They’ve got lots of natural light, space for 200 people, and they offer to do the party planning for you. They’ll mold it around your company’s culture and provide the bartender, photographer, and DJ.
Terminus 330. Elegant and industrial with its hardwood floors and exposed brick walls, Terminus 330 is fab for corporate events or charity functions. Located downtown, the folks at this historic-landmark-but-also-contemporary-loft space will help you select vendors so you get just the right food and drink options for your guests (at the right price point).
Atlanta Contemporary Art Center. Located in the chic, design-centric Westside of Atlanta, this place has an outdoor space, lecture hall, lots of sunlight, and art exhibitions. The former 1920s industrial warehouse is now an important art center for the community. They’ve got room for a 400-person cocktail party or a 200-person sit-down affair, and their outdoor pavilion is rustic and beautiful. The center has been host to corporate events like board meetings, parties, and executive dinners (though they don’t allow fundraisers or benefits).
Mason Fine Art. This contemporary art gallery makes for a beautifully elegant space to host your event. Located between Midtown and Buckhead, Mason Fine Arts is unique and expansive – at 21,000 square feet – and fit for charity functions, parties, and even fashion shows. You and your party people will be surrounded by clean white walls and beautiful art… obviously. They offer parking, tables, security, and bar packages (don’t choose the cash bar, please), plus they can recommend caterers and DJs if ya need ‘em.

They’ve got a big wooden bar, polished concrete floors, room for up to 1,000 people, and you can throw in a whiskey tasting for your guests.
5 Seasons Brewery. Located on the Westside of ATL, this craft brewery offers several rooms and menus for all your event needs.

Urban Tree Cidery. Located in West Midtown, this cidery is great for parties, corporate events, and fundraisers. They’ve got a tasting room and cider-making facilities on site. It’s industrial chic and totally unique (it’s Atlanta’s first cidery!). They don’t have food, but you can bring your own!
Fado Irish Pub in Midtown or Buckhead. Not trendy or hip, this is just the great casual atmosphere of an Irish pub. Book an event with them, and they’ll provide food, drinks, and if you want, on-site entertainment like live music, trivia, cigar rolling, or poker tables. No stuffiness here.
Game-X. If you’re trying to throw a fun party or corporate team bonding event that’s a little out of the box, check out Game-X. It’s located downtown with great views and it offers 12,000 square feet of space or parties of 10 to 400 people. You’ll have access to a chic mezzanine lounge upstairs, a full bar (with food menu), a rooftop helipad (duh), and of course, a game room of over 60 games like air hockey, skeeball, and virtual bowling.
