    The bar is fantastic with great beers on tap&a good deck atmosphere. The foodtruck out back left a lot to be desired,barbacoa tacos-on grocerystore flour tortillas& meat tasted days old/microwaved.

    Doorman was super helpful about giving us a few local options/places to go and the food truck in the back was good! Great place!

    96 is a renovated one-room Rainey Street home outfitted to be the hood's first sports-friendly thirst quencher, with two flat-screens above the jade-colored bar and another pair on the stained patio. Read more

    Awesome backyard space. Ask for bags at the bar and give the bartender your ID to play cornhole/bags for free outside!

    Go on a beautiful day and sit in the back of the house. Great place to chill with friends or play some games.

    Try the frozen mojitos or drink as many $2 Pearl beers as you can. Grab a large group of friends and go around back to the patio. Touch the fake grass. It's soft!

    Quite simply, the coolest sports bar that you will ever visit. Check out the great food truck in the back!

    Rainey Street's sports bar entry is not your typical, obnoxiously fratty place to watch the game with a beer.

    Nothing exceptional but solid spot. Try to get the washer on the hook. Play a round of cornhole. Have a beer. Move on down the street.

    Do not order mix drinks here. They skimp you on the liquor and the bartender gets upsets if you complain.
