Day Trip: Break Away at The Battery

Home to the Atlanta Braves since 2017, the Battery Atlanta has an open, outdoor campus designed for both relaxation and recreation – no matter your vibe. While we recommend catching a Braves game, there are year-round events for all ages, so trust us, you do not have to be a sports fan to enjoy a day at the Battery. Whether you are heading to the Battery for one of their Movie Series nights, taking a free weekly yoga class on the lawn, shopping at the seasonal Farmers Market, enjoying live entertainment or just going for dinner and drinks, one day may not be enough to explore everything the Battery has to offer. Lucky for you, we’ve created this guide to maximize your day trip to the Battery – see you there!

Pro-tip number one for visiting the Battery is to come hungry – there are a variety of food options for all the fellow foodies! With both old favorites and new one-of-a-kind concepts, the Battery has a table for all taste buds. With over 20 eateries, many including social lounges and gaming parlors, your Day In The Life At The Battery could be exclusively food-focused – and we wouldn’t blame you! In fact, we’d be asking to join. Grab an authentic slice at Antico’s, play a game and drink at Punch Bowl Social, catch a trivia night at Battle & Brew, feast at Ph’East and finish the day with a treat at Jeni’s Ice Creams. Pro-tip number two: you can get alcohol to-go as long as you stay within the Battery, so you can walk around with your drink and not have to stop exploring.

Now that you know you won’t be hungry after your day at the Battery, what about things to do? Just as the Battery isn’t short of dining options, entertainment options are around every corner. From bowling and virtual reality experiences to concerts at the Coca-Cola Roxy, the Battery Atlanta considers itself a “360-degree experience where you can do everything within steps of the field.” A paint-and-sip experience is coming soon to the Battery, and you can currently enjoy a virtual reality gaming experience, mechanical bull-riding, immersive escape room adventures, listening to live music, catching the latest movie and more. In addition to these entertainment options, free events continue to pop up, including their screen on the green, trivia, Tennis on the Turf, yoga and comedy shows.

Last but certainly not least, catch a Braves game at the Battery! Did we mention the Braves won their fourth World Series title in 2021?

The lively bars, restaurants and experiences we mentioned make the Battery the perfect pre-game hangout spot. As you enter the Battery on game day, the energy is palpable and it is an experience that every baseball fan should have. Take your favorite people out to the ballgame and for a day at the Battery – we know you won’t regret it.
