This Athens spot was named one of the best college bars in the U.S.

College is for learning, of course, but that also includes learning to have fun, right?

Food website thinks  so -- it recently listed the top college bar in each state, and to UGA students and alumni, the site's Georgia pick should come as no surprise.

The Globe was picked as one of the best college bars in the U.S. for its fish & chips and "a casual pub vibe -- UGA students and professors even gather here for meet and greets during the semester," the site says.

The bar, which opened in 1989, bills itself as "a pub for the heart and mind" on its Facebook page.
