Welcome To Atlanta! Here's What To Do
Atlanta has grown over the last few years into a huge metro area. Most people visit Atlanta on the weekend, leaving around 48 to 72 hours open to find out what this city has to offer.
Here’s a complete guide to all the hot spots in Atlanta.
For breakfast, visit both West Egg Café & Ms Icey’s, for a southern spin on classic breakfast & brunch. While West Egg Café specializes in spinning breakfast classics, that can’t steer you wrong such as Banana Bread French Toast, Fried Chicken Hash, and the infamous steak & Eggs. Ms. Icey’s on the other hand, brings you brunch from a Caribbean viewpoint. Staple dishes such as Fish n grits, Braised Oxtail, Jerk Lamb & Sweet Potato Waffles.
What To Do
Ponce City Market should be your first stop, no matter the weather there is something to do there. You can start off on the roof, where there are incredible views of the entire city of Atlanta and an adult amusement park (21+ after 9pm).
Then there’s The Painted Pin, think bowling for adults. This upscale bowling alley, sets the tone with great music , over the top drinks and great snacks.
Wine & Dine
After enjoying a day out, it must be time for dinner. Little Alley Steak, will give you the true steakhouse romantic authentic feeling. Some of the crowds favorites are the branzino, beef meatballs and the tomahawk steak. However, the star of the show is the bone-in ribeye, lollipop cut steak with the black truffle butter. Not in the mood for anything too heavy? Barcelona Wine Bar, is a Spanish style tapas restaurant and wine bar.
Known for its outstanding wine selections, it is also known for some of it’s small plates like Spiced Beef Empanadas, Hanger Steak & the famous Olive Oil Cake.
Match Bar & Oven, is a low-key hang out for all things after hours.Not only does Match have the best drinks, and probably the best hookah they also have a little surprise. Climb up the steps and head to the small enclosed rooftop to see the entire Atlanta skyline plus a jaw dropping view of the Mercedes Benz stadium.
If you are looking for a party, OAK Atlanta is the place. You can not come to Atlanta without visiting this massive club/lounge. Oak Atlanta has 4 floors all serving a different element, which lends it establishment to welcoming all types of people. The first floor is for the true party goers, this floor is full of sections ready to filled by people who know how to party all night, you might even see some of your favorite celebrities. The second floor houses a restaurant/bar, where you can still hear the music lingering from the second floor. The Third floor, while it mimics the first has a little more dance floor room for all the people who want to get out and really enjoy the night. However, my favorite and the top floor is Oak Atlanta’s rooftop. This rooftop which highlights the entire Atlanta skyline is also perfect for a night cap. Grab a table on the rooftop, some late night eats and some drinks from the bar to take in your complete Atlanta experience.
