Ready for your big day but no idea where to host your rehearsal dinner? No worries — we have got you covered! Athens, Georgia offers so many good fine dining restaurants, but we have narrowed it down to help YOU choose the perfect one!


Five Bar

Five Bar offers an unique atmosphere while being in a perfect location in Downtown Athens. Five Bar gets its name because its menu has five things under each category: five appetizers, five entrees, five cocktails, etc. Even though Five Bar has a simple and short menu, each item is extremely delicious, and your guests will be sure to find something that they will enjoy! Check out their dinner menu here! I recommend starting with an appetizer of Uptown Shrimp, munching on Paneed Chicken for your entree and sipping on a Jalapeno Margarita!

Last Resort Grill

Last Resort Grill, also known as just Last Resort, is a go-to dining location for people familiar with Athens. Everyone raves about Last Resort, and they are totally right! Last Resort has a big menu, so your guests will find something that they will love. The restaurant is located in Downtown Athens and features a bar. Last Resort also has THE BEST cheesecake to finish the dinner off just right! Take a look at Last Resort’s full dinner menu here. My favorite is the Last Resort Praline and topping it off with the White Chocolate Cheesecake.

Depalma’s Italian Cafe

Mamma mia! Depalma’s is delicioso! Give your guests their italian fix at Depalma’s Italian Cafe. Depalma’s has four different locations. The downtown location offers a more private setting. They can set up a room for just you and your guests to give your rehearsal dinner an intimate feel. Depalma’s has a big dinner menu that includes fish, salads, soups, pizza and, of course, pasta! Let your guest dine on yummy pasta and wine that will be sure they will get a good night sleep. Take a look at their menu. I love slurping up the Pasta Depalma!
