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. Kawa Japanese Tapas & Grill

Stop by for lunch or dinner to watch the tournament. TVs at the bar are visible from almost any seat in the restaurant, so you'll have plenty of room to spread out if you order a few dishes and a bottle of saké.

3. 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.

4. Southbound Smokehouse 

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

5. Hive Growler Bar

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.
