At The Battery Atlanta, Cordish will develop a two-level venue that will feature a 40-foot diagonal, high-definition LED screen as a back-drop for social games and activities throughout the venue that also will include PBR Bar & Grill (branded for Professional Bull Riders Association) and a chef-driven concept to be announced at a later date.
