Willie B was one of Zoo Atlanta’s most notable attractions. He was the Zoo’s first gorilla and it’s most visited exhibit until his passing in 1998. In honor of this giant’s passing the Atlanta Silverbacks, formerly the Atlanta Rhuckus, adopted the “Silverback” name for the park and the team. The semi-pro Atlanta Silverbacks team no longer plays, but the park keeps the Silverbacks name and Willie B’s Bar and Grille carries on the name of one of Atlanta’s most beloved treasures.
Willie B’s Bar and Grille is located on-site at Silverbacks Park in Atlanta. We are nestled field side in the main stadium of the park. This gives our patrons panoramic view of all the different events that we hold in the stadium and on the bar’s patio. Our restaraunt manager works hard to curate a unique craft beer rotation as well as stocking up on fan favorites. Our cooks bring their own flare to the menu with authentic tacos and creative catering displays.
