City Tap Midtown To Grand Open Super Bowl Sunday

'Big game watch party' celebration February 3 will feature NFL Hall of Fame players.

City Tap, the American gastropub replacing Gordon Biersch at 848 Peachtree Street NE, will celebrate its grand opening on Sunday, February 3, according to a press release Friday.

A Super 53 watch party will be held as part of the restaurant’s grand opening celebration during Super Bowl Sunday.

NFL Hall of Fame players will be on-hand “to mix, mingle and talk football with guests throughout the game,” including James Lofton, Andre Reed, Jack Youngblood, and Bobby Bell, and William Henderson.

Doors will open for a la carte food and drink at 3 p.m on February 3, and the grand opening party will begin at 4:30 p.m.

Tickets, $150 each (includes an open beer and wine bar, soft drinks, all-you-can-eat “game-day favorites” like sliders, nachos, crab and corn hushpuppies, wood-fired pizza, and more), can be reserved by emailing

“During the night, attendees can watch the game, discuss plays, and take photos with Gridiron Legends for a once in a lifetime experience,” according to the release.

Tickets also include valet.

Executive Chef Greg Gettles will oversee the kitchen and menu.

City Tap’s beer list will feature many picks from local breweries like Monday Night Brewing, Orpheus Brewing, Wild Heaven Beer, SweetWater Brewery, and New Realm Brewing, alongside international offerings.

City Tap’s location in Midtown includes 10,000 square feet of restaurant space with a covered patio, a mezzanine with a full bar and two private dining spaces, and first-floor dining with seating for over 100.

The design draws inspiration from City Tap’s signature aesthetic, with a mix of rustic and industrial elements including iron framework, reclaimed wood, and copper and stone bars.

Alongside the front of the restaurant is a brick patio featuring a firepit and lounge-style seating, and around the corner, a double-sided bar opens to the interior on one side and onto a long patio for al fresco dining.
