Since you will need the full day for shopping, enjoy an in-room dining breakfast fit for a king (or queen!) at the hotel. Now it’s time to hit the ground running and get all your shopping done! Miami Circle and Bennett Street offer the city’s best gallery and antique shopping. Whether you’re in the market for a painting, a missing antique silver piece to match the set from your grandmother or contemporary glass pieces, you’ll find what you’re looking for and more in these Buckhead markets.
For a quick, yet delicious local lunch, stop at Souper Jenny or her sister restaurant Café Jonah for homemade soups, salads and sandwiches. Both located in repurposed homes, you’ll feel like you’ve gone back in time.
In the heart of Buckhead is Lenox Square Mall and Phipps Plaza, both located across from the hotel. Have instant access to an impressive collection of over 100 international luxury retailers just steps away. If you really want to explore high fashion, check out the new Buckhead Atlanta, known as the “Rodeo Drive” of Atlanta.
Show off the day’s purchases at dinner at hot spots like Bacchanalia or Gunshow . Serving the best of the season with a multiple-course menu from the chef’s own farm, Bacchanalia is sure to be a memorable experience. For a non-traditional style of dining, Gunshow serves unique bites dim-sum style often times presented by the chef who created it.
Begin a leisurely day of shopping with brunch at Murphy’s, a staple in the Highlands for more than 20 years, before making your way through the two-mile stretch of the Virginia Highlands neighborhood. Stationery, home goods and plenty of clothing boutiques line the streets of this beautiful historic enclave. Across town is the Westside Provisions District, a newly developed area with several home furnishing, clothing and gift boutiques. Don’t miss local gourmet shop Star Provisions and Jeni’s ice cream for an afternoon treat!
Dine like a local at one of Atlanta’s upscale French brasseries Bistro Niko (steak frites are second to none) for a lively, upscale experience, Anis for an intimate, casual experience (the best mussels) and newcomer Le Bilboquet in the Buckhead Atlanta development are sure to please even the most discerning diner.
