Events This Weekend

📍 Buckhead Village District

Buckhead is truly one of the best places in Atlanta to go shopping. Whether you’re looking to spend your life savings on a luxury bag or browse through the sale section, you are sure to find pretty much every store you desire here.

There are many shopping centers and malls in this area, including Lenox Square Mall, Phipps Plaza, Buckhead Village District, and more. If you want tons of options, we suggest Lenox Square Mall, and if you want to pretend you’re in Beverly Hills shopping on Rodeo Drive, you have to check out Buckhead Village District. It’s the Rodeo of Atlanta

Coffee

Every great neighborhood needs a great coffee shop…or several great coffee shops. If you’re looking for a spot to get away from the office for a while, meet a client, or meet a friend, you are sure to find it here in Buckhead.

We recommend Dancing Goats Coffee Bar, as well as BRASH Coffee Roasters.  You can almost always find a seat inside or outside at Dancing Goats, and you will never be disappointed with your coffee. BRASH is a cool spot located in the Atlanta History Center. Grab a bomb cup of coffee and a photo for your Instagram!

Food

Good food is not hard to find in Buckhead! It doesn’t matter what mood you are in, you will find amazing food everywhere you turn no matter the type of cuisine. Our favorites includeGypsy Kitchen, Henri’s Bakery & Deli, and Velvet Taco.

When we went to Velvet Taco last, we ordered the hot chicken tacos and a marg and they were both bomb. This is the perfect spot to go if you’re looking for a quick dining option with great food. We also love Henri’s Bakery for the same reason! We love their Santa Fe Chicken Sandwich and really any of their delicious baked goods.

Ready to grab a drink? Buckhead has a ton of cool bars, including Biltong Bar.  There are also happy hours at Gypsy Kitchen as well as Chido + Padre’s if you’re looking for a deal.

Biltong Bar is a South African gastropub with a huge drink menu including mixed drinks, absinthe cocktails, luxury cocktails, shareable drinks poured tableside, champagne, wine, spirits, and more! There are so many amazing drink options; you are likely to find a drink you love. 

Dessert

In the mood for a sweet treat? Buckhead will not disappoint. There are so many sweet shops that are to die for. Our personal favorites are Da Vinci’s Donuts and Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams

If you’re looking for something quick and easy to grab, you’re going to want to head to Da Vinci’s Donuts, located at Lenox Square! Get your shop on and take a few mini donuts home.

If you’re an ice cream lover, you’re going to love Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams. You can grab a cone after having a date night at Velvet Tacos! Our personal favorite flavors are the gooey butter cake as well as the brown butter almond brittle. You really cannot go wrong with any of the flavors offered at Jeni’s!
