If you're looking to spend your Fourth of July with a drink in hand and a scenic view, we have just the place in mind. The Georgia Aquarium is hosting a Fourth of July party with unlimited drinks to get you lit af.
The "Red, White, and Brew" party combines the spirit of the holiday along with the beauty of some of the most majestic marine life. It's been an annual tradition since 2011.
The celebration kicks off at 7 p.m. on the top floor of the parking deck. You'll have the perfect seats for viewing fireworks without getting stuck in the crowd of Centennial Olympic Park.
It's been an Atlanta curse to have rain nearly every Fourth of July, so in case the weather gets icky, the majority of the event will be held in the Ocean's Ballroom. You'll have access to photo booth opportunities, late night viewing to aquarium exhibits, food, and live music.
If having the aquarium all to yourself and the other party-loving adults isn't enough of a reason to get a ticket, you'll have access to unlimited beer and cider samplings. An official list of breweries hasn't been released, but local favorites like SweetWater, Eventide, and Orpheus are expected to be available as they've been years before.
The aquarium has also partnered with Atlanta Brewing Company on several aquatic themed beers, so you'll likely get the chance to sample one of the six collaborations.
You don't have to miss out on the holiday cookouts. Wolfgang Puck Catering is coming through to provide the most delicious all-American BBQ selection for dinner. They've catered several adults-only events at the aquarium, so you can expect masterpieces on the plate. They're even got a plethora of options for vegetarians and vegans, so nobody has to go hungry.
Don't say we didn't warn you that you need to start saving now. General admission is $65. You can purchase tickets to this can't miss event here. The event is 21+.
Even if you do or don't make it out for the party, you have to come to the aquarium in 2020 after the opening of their new shark exhibit. There's always something new to see at the biggest aquarium in the United States.
