Best Five Points Bar: Group Therapy

By Lauren Russo

No one’s ever said therapy is fun, but that's because they've never been to Group Therapy, this year's winner of Best Five Points Bar.

Founded in 1978, Group Therapy is the oldest bar in Five Points and has been a Columbia staple ever since. Open seven nights a week, there is always something going on at this outstanding venue. With two different bars on the inside, there is never a long wait, allowing people to keep the party going. The establishment also offers a shuffleboard game set for anyone who is in the mood to have some friendly competition.

Group Therapy’s most unique feature, however, is its outside DJ area. With more than enough room for dancing and a third bar, it is the perfect place to spend your night. TVs also line the walls, so you can watch any big game while you socialize.

There is a reason this bar has been around for almost 30 years, so you don't want to miss it. From the awesome music to the timeless decor, Group Therapy’s atmosphere will keep you dancing your worries away until the last call.
