When I lived in Athens and went to Unversity of Georgia we went here all the time. They had really good music most of the time, good prices on drinks, and a cute little Athensesque type place.

I love this place. They get top bands for cheap tickets prices. It can get very, very crowded depending on who's playing, but the bartenders will never leave you hanging. Very reasonable beer prices.

Even though it's no longer in its original location(s), the 40 Watt parties on. A wide variety of acts but also many who wouldn't ordinarily play such a small venue.

Located a the corner of Washington and Pulaski, the 40 Watt is one of the larger clubs in Athens. It offers the celebrated Krush Girls, and gives people ages 18 and up a great place in downtown Athens to dance the night away.

I have romanticized the 40 Watt so completely that I am really not able to say anything objectively bad about it. The sound is usually good, and the shows I have seen there changed my world and shaped my youth. I love the staff for never having kicked me out, not even once, not even if I truly, truly deserved it for whatever drunken back- stage- when- I- wasn?t -supposed- to- be- shenanigans I was up to. The venue itself is a little bit dreamy and whimsical with all the twinkly lights, and the drinks are strong, cheap and served by really really nice people. The 40 Watt is iconic, and I hope it?s around forever.

Pros: $2 tall boys

Cons: not enough seats
