What say you, Atlanta?

Rise Up© here? Or there? Where?

Many Atlantans were crestfallen this week to hear the Georgia Dome will be off-limits for a massive Super Bowl viewing party — a potentially historic event Mayor Kasim Reed had trumped on Monday.

But fear not, says the mayor!

In a radio interview this morning with 680 The Fan, Hizzoner said the city is indeed planning an epic viewing party in the city. He just couldn’t say where yet, citing logistics that are still being ironed out.

Below, we’ve identified several likely candidates for hosting a throwdown like the ATL has never seen. Below that, we’ve opened a poll where Atlantans can lodge a vote.

So let’s pretend like it will make a difference and fight for our right to party — where we want to!


Piedmont Park

Curbed Atlanta

Atlanta’s beautiful, spacious front yard was literally built to throw huge shindigs, and it routinely hosts the largest crowds in town during festivals throughout the year.


Underground Atlanta

Sure, Atlanta’s most underwhelming tourist attraction is like a staged house that’s under contract, but it’s hard to get more transit-connected than Underground Atlanta, which could alleviate traffic hassles. Plus, the property has years and years of experience hosting large-scale drunken gatherings.


Historic Fourth Ward Park

Curbed Atlanta

Beltline walkability to The Big Game’s big party wouldn’t get much better than this. Just don’t trample the plant life, y’all.


Centennial Olympic Park

Centennial Olympic Park in winter.
Curbed Atlanta

Be it Fourth of July or 420Fest, this transit-friendly downtown greenspace knows how to get down.


Casa de Ludacris

One of eight Ludacris homes, at least in 2013.

What better place for chicken and beer than the East Point estate of Falcons fanatic Luda himself?


Turner Field

Curbed Atlanta

That outfield big screen would be primo. But would new owner Georgia State University hand over the keys?


The Clermont Lounge

Curbed Atlanta

Sure, it’s an active construction site (hello, liability) with extremely limited space. But this is the Super Bowl, man. And this town needs an ATL icon to Rise Up! Plus, the Clermont has on-site recycling capabilities virtually every night.
