Visiting the state fair and partying it up at the school carnival as a kid could be considered some of the best childhood memories. While you'd normally have to wait for the fair to come around every fall to be a kid again, there's a little spot in Atlanta that's like a boozy mini carnival for adults year-round. Among some of the best bars in Atlanta, Skyline Park Rooftop at Ponce City Market will let you sip n' play with incredible views.
They don't call it Skyline Park for nothin'; visitors can get the best views of the Atlanta cityscape while they sip and slay at carnival-style games. With a fully stocked bar for those 21 and up, a day of play here with your besties might just be the perfect summer day.
You'll find fun fares such as mini-golf and a drop tower, but it's the metal slide that's the star of this sky-high show.
The three-story, 44-foot tall metal slide will zip you and your friends down three at a time. Just like the good ol' fair days, you'll get a carpet to ride on as you race your friends to the bottom. Last one down has to buy the group Frosés!
For the ultimate view, head up as the sun starts setting and watch a technicolor sky backdrop the city's skyscrapers.
The food here will bring those carnival vibes full circle. You can order things like a smoked turkey leg, a foot-long hot dog with all the fixin's, funnel cakes, and even ice cream.
Each season the bar rolls out a new special menu to fit with the weather. This spring, customers will find refreshing options like The Basic Bae — made with Tito’s Vodka, mint, lemon, Peychaud’s, grape and ginger, and their famous lemon frosé.
It's only $25 to have full access to the roof and all the fair-like fun. If you just want to hang out and look around for a little while without enjoying any of the games or rides, the price drops to just $10 per person.
Whether you're a kid at heart or are simply looking for a fun new place to hang out, Skyline Park's got ya covered!
Price: $25 admission and access to rides and games, $10 admission to just hang out.
