For decades, there was a notion that the natural habitat for geekdom was Mom’s basement, surrounded by Star Wars action figures, Klingon language guides, and a room cluttered with video game consoles and cartridges, comic books, and several generations of Dungeons and Dragons manuals, games, and add-ons.

The Mom’s basement part was never accurate.

But for the past decade or so, geekdom has come into its own, with the venerable comic book graduated to graphic novels, video games developed into a major industry, and a whole circuit of geek-oriented conventions, from DragonCon to Comic-Con drew larger and larger crowds.

Now a new destination for geeks is coming to Cobb County.

Battle & Brew, whose motto is “Game Geek and Grub” is opening its gamer-themed bar and restaurant in The Battery AtlantaFacebook | Twitter | Instagram.

About the Battery Atlanta 

View Larger Map

The Battery Atlanta was developed by the Braves organization and other development partners as part of the controversial decision of the Atlanta Braves to move from Turner Field in the City of Atlanta to the stadium that began as SunTrust Park and became Truist Park after SunTrust merged with BB&T to form Truist Park.

As part of the stadium deal, the area surrounding the ballpark was developed as a mixed-use community: The Battery Atlanta.

The Battery Atlanta is located in the Cumberland Community Improvement District area of Cobb County at the intersection of I-75 and I-285, adjacent to Cobb Parkway.  

According to its website the complex is 2 million square feet.

The stadium opened in 2017 and anchors the mixed-use development.

The Battery was designed by Wakefield Beasley & Associates, which has since been acquired by Nelson, and includes restaurants, apartments, hotels, retail and office space.
