Located next to Suntrust Park, Punch Bowl Social is a massive entertainment complex with arcade games, karaoke, bowling, and loud music. While it sounds a little like a 2018 reboot of Dave & Buster’s, the food and drinks come from the team at Empire State South and both are actually really good. They serve everything from fried bologna sandwiches to street tacos to buckets of fried chicken, all of which go great with a few beers or any of their punches, which come in single, four, or eight person sizes. This place is definitely a nighttime spot that you check out after a Braves game with a bunch of friends, but if the blaring music and bright lights really do it for you, they’re also open for brunch and lunch.
