Around here, it’s not officially Spring until Masters week. Millions of people around the world have watched the golf drama unfold during Augusta's most famous annual tradition - but far fewer have entered the gates of the Augusta National to see the course and players firsthand. If you're in Augusta without a ticket, we've got several downtown spots where you can grab a seat at the bar with the locals to watch the tournament.

1. Solé Grill & Sushi Bar

Pull up a stool at the bar up front or head to the outdoor patio and order a couple of sushi rolls or appetizers and a cold drink before unwinding with a replay of the day's Masters highlights. 

2. Farmhaus Burgers

Snag a seat at the bar during lunch or dinner, order a burger with pimento cheese (it's Masters week - so you've GOTTA) and sip on a boozy shake as you catch up on the day's play.

3. Southbound Smokehouse

Grab some BBQ and a beer to watch and relax in southern style with TVs accessible for all tournament updates. 

4. Soul City Pizza 

TVs around the bar and restaurant are visible from a bar stool or table - making it easy to watch the tournament with a classic Arnold Palmer cocktail.
