Eats, Drinks, and Markets in Atlanta, GA


Just a four hour drive from Nashville, Atlanta is my favorite road trip to take a few times a year. Another awesome southern city, it has it's own charm, amazing food, incredible shopping, and creative community. Here's a rundown of where to eat, drink, and shop on a short getaway!


Ponce City Market is a beautiful urban/industrial space with open air shops like 18.21 Bitters where I always grab a few cocktail mixers for myself and as gifts for friends, and full stores like lululemon, West Elm, and Madewell too. I could spend a whole day here but there's too much to see. Bonus: the market is right on the Beltline so you can walk to other places and enjoy a beautiful day in the city!


One of my favorite restaurants in the world, Two Urban Licks never disappoints. Tucked into an old warehouse, the space is beautiful, the servers are the friendliest, and the food is unbelievable. This time, the salmon chips were the highlight of our full table!


Since I'd eaten so much at Two Urban Licks, I didn't get to try the tacos, but the organic margarita at Holy Taco was scrumptious and the patio with ivy covered muraled walls is so pretty. The hip neighborhood makes it fun to meet people here, too!



Despite its name, Brother Moto is definitely not just for the boys. Cool tshirts and accessories, great decor and friendly staff, this place is a unique and worthwhile stop.


A morning stop at Octane Coffee is a must. Grab a pastry from The Little Tart, like the super flaky ham and cheese croissant, and sip some truly yummy coffee (iced for me, of course). Bonus? Unlike some of our trendy coffee shops in Nashville, here you'll fit in even if you aren't in hipster gear and the prices aren't at hipster levels either. 


Krog Street Market is a local market in what appears to be a very active neighborhood! We saw cyclists and runners galore. Some cool looking restaurants border a market space with things like beer, chocolate made on site, soaps, and the like. 


I have to give a shout out to my friends at So Worth Loving. I love their mission and their shirts and accessories are always stylish. I dare you to escape without buying a few!
