Martin's at Lake Martin — where every hour is Happy Hour!

Martin’s is in the same location and building as the old Colonel Tom’s Tavern and CT’s Bar. Colonel Tom’s, a renowned honky tonk bar, was a staple within the Dadeville/Tallapoosa community for well over six decades; it drew crowds from as far as Birmingham, Montgomery and even Columbus,Georgia.

After making an offer to the previous CT’s owner, local Dadeville native Corey Martin acquired the bar in the spring of 2021 and immediately began renovations to transform it into a festive sports and entertainment venue; part of the renovations was the name change to Martin’s at Lake Martin.

Having the love he does for the Dadeville community, Corey is excited to own this legendary venue. Just as with the scholarship he worked to establish with Auburn University for Tallapoosa County, he hopes to useMartin’s as a platform to continue giving back to worthy causes here in Dadeville.
