City Guides

Atlanta

Stellar Bodies

Start your day with a workout…there’s no better way to feel like a local than to snag a spot in the hottest class in town. Megaformer machines book up fast, so be sure to plan in advance. Dtox is right down the block, so you can sip on a smoothie post-sweat. Sister-studio Fit 9 is slated to open soon…right next to Lucy’s Market, if you’re up for a double doozie.

Mitylene

Right down Roswell Road, continue your morning at Mitylene, the perfect shop for mamas with littles. The cool edit comes thanks to owners Laura and Betsy who both exude Southern style with a twist. They hold the Atlanta-exclusive to brands like Tish Cox, Lingua Franca and SQN Sport…which are worth checking out if you can pull yourself away from the precious Tocoto Vintage and Gunner and Lux goods for the babes.

Lucy’s Market

Quite possibly the most charming spot in town, Lucy’s has everything you need to make your hostess the gift basket of her dreams…the one for you, one for me rule definitely applies here. From the fresh produce and sweets to the books and seasonal decor, plan to spend at least an hour browsing and look out for  Lucy herself…typically manning the flower shop-in-shop.

The Swan House

Whether you’re taking a tour of the Atlanta History Center (on the same property) or just have a moment to drive down Andrews for a quick look, this spot is a must-see, especially if you’re a fan of The Hunger Games, which filmed its big party scene around back (that’s the view you shouldn’t miss).

Himitsu

Be sure to ask your concierge or an in-the-know Atl-ien for the hook up at this exclusive bar, a few doors down from sushi hot spot Umi. Once you have the secret passcode and are in the space, you may find yourself admiring the huge Todd Murphy piece on the wall or dancing to the spot-on mix of old school rap.

    Love the city guide! I just moved here from NYC and I have been following your blog to get accumulated to the area. I see you’re a NYC native, where would you recommend your go-to coffee spot is for a good pick me up in Atlanta? Are there any cafes with a hangout atmosphere & wifi? Specifically if there are any in the Buckhead area?

      Thanks so much, Jackie! My favorite spot (Corso Coffee) just closed unfortunately, so I’m in the same boat and am trying to find a new place. Mourning Dove is going to open in the same location (Buckhead Atlanta next to Dior) in October, so I hear. I’m hopeful that it’s good! Bar Crema is also supposed to open in the Andrews Square shopping center soon (this is where Lucy’s Market, SAMA, Fit 9 and Henri’s are located). For now, I’ve been working at home (and the coffee here is underwhelming at best!).
