There are ton's of places to play trivia in Atlanta. These ladies are celebrating a win at Oyster Barn and Grill in Lilburn. 

Do you love to impress friends with random factoids? Are you the queen of useless knowledge? Do you ponder the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow? Well, you need to get yourself to a trivia night ASAP!

Atlanta’s watering holes know you have the need to be quizzed while sipping on brew. So, what are your best bets? We gathered some of our favorite neighborhood spots to battle below!

The popular brewpub in Decatur is not only serving up some tasty house made brews, but also giving you the chance to serve up some knowledge on your friends. Things get started at 8 p.m. every Monday night. Prizes are house cash and bragging rights. If you want to keep the games going, Twains is stacked with other diversions, like pool tables, shuffleboard and darts. And with a revamped menu to go with the beer, you’ll want to camp out all night.

211 E Trinity Pl, Decatur.

Virginia Highland – Diesel Filling Station

Need a serious challenge? Or need to prove your nerd credentials once and for all? Well, get your "Firefly" and Marvel knowledge ready. Diesel does Nerd-Core Trivia on Thursdays as part of Dirty South Trivia. Think nerdy movies and TV shows mixed with computer questions, comic books and more. It's tough. 

870 N. Highland Ave., Atlanta.

Midtown – The Highlander

Want a little heavy metal with your trivia? On Sundays, The Highlander lets you extend the weekend just a little bit with a night of self-esteem lifting (or crushing) trivia. The best part is this dive bar does not have the typical freezer-to-fryer fare. Check out the house-made favorites, like jerk chili and pasta–rella sticks (mozzarella sticks wrapped in pasta … really).  Order a pitcher of High Life and some tots on the side of anything, and everything will be right.

931 Monroe Dr NE #101, Atlanta.

Does Fido have all the answers? If you’re in Roswell with a trivia itch, grab the pup and head straight to Lucky’s. The dog friendly restaurant hosts Team Trivia 8 p.m. every Wednesday. Settle in with a glass of brew and one of their juicy burgers. You have 16 to choose from, including the Georgia Dawg Pounder with a fried pimento cheese ball and red pepper jelly.

1144 Alpharetta St, Roswell.

Grant Park – Republic Social House

When the weather is gorgeous, grab a seat at the rooftop bar at Republic Social House. Next to Oakland Cemetery in Grant Park, Republic has weekly game nights that bring in a huge crowd of PBR-swilling folks. On Thursdays, get your grown-up knowledge ready for Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll Trivia. If you want more adult-themed game nights, on Wednesday try Dirty Bingo.

437-C Memorial Dr SE, Atlanta.

Sandy Springs – Battle & Brew

Geeks unite! Every Wednesday in Sandy Springs they’re gathering to outdo one another in Geek Trivia. Topics range from science to "Star Wars" and everything in between. And they promise — no sports questions! If you love the vibe here, there are tons of other weekly events for your inner geek. Table Top Thursday lets you bring in your favorite board games and play. They occasionally bring in virtual reality games to play.

5920 Roswell Rd A120, Sandy Springs.

Westside – Rocky Mountain Pizza Co.

Take on the students from Georgia Tech every week at Rocky Mountain Pizza. On Tuesday nights, teams of engineering and physics majors gather in this pizza spot. Trust us, you’ll want to brush up on your science knowledge. Fun bit of trivia about this spot: Legend has it that the trivia at Rocky Mountain inspired a famous episode on Adult Swim’s "Aqua Teen Hunger Force."

1005 Hemphill Ave NW, Atlanta.
