Plan the perfect date night in Atlanta

It’s Friday, the weather’s great and you want to take your significant other out for a night on the town. The options are endless, and everyone has different restrictions and operating hours. Where to begin?

Every great date night has three basic components: food, fun and an element of surprise. “Choose your own adventure” from the options below and craft your perfect date night in the heart of Atlanta.


Atlanta is a food lover’s dream. The massive metropolitan area boasts restaurants featuring every style of cuisine imaginable, from Lebanese to Chinese and beyond.

Eater Atlanta makes the case for the city’s food scene in its guide to eating in the city. Your best bet for choosing a restaurant from the many options is to narrow down the style of food first. From James Beard award-winning chefs to up-and-coming restaurants, Atlanta’s dining scene is not to be overlooked.

Atlantic Station Dining Options

Restaurants at Atlantic Station run the gamut from fast-casual to fancy and everything in between. HOBNOB, Bantam + Biddy and envegan are all new to the lineup, with Azotea Cantina and Toscano opening soon. See all Atlantic Station dining options here.


After your meal, take a stroll in a new neighborhood or bike through one of Atlanta’s many parks. Not only will it feel good to work off the meal, but you’ll get a taste of Atlanta’s natural beauty and abundance of foliage.

If events are more your speed, look for outdoor concerts with local artists or attend one of Atlanta’s annual arts festivals or makers’ markets. Choosing to support local will make the night that much sweeter!

Atlantic Station Events

At Atlantic Station, our main goal is bringing the community together in a safe and enjoyable way. That being said, we’ve recently reintroduced some of our favorite events with a few added restrictions. Wellness Wednesday classes with atl kula start at 6:30pm each week, and we’re hosting live music each Friday night in June! Be sure check our events calendar, as we regularly add new events to the mix.


It only takes a few minutes on Google to uncover hidden gems in Atlanta. If your partner is a foodie, surprise them with a wine tasting at the local wine shop. If you love the great outdoors, grab a nightcap at a bar with a stunning patio. Whatever strikes your fancy, don’t be afraid to get creative and organize something unique.

Atlantic Station Surprises

Ramp up the fun and surprise your partner with a picnic in the park or a round of bowling and cocktails at Bowlero. Then, pretend to be a tourist in your own city and end the night with a staycation at the 12 Midtown Autograph Collection Hotel. Finish the weekend strong with a round of mimosas from on-site restaurant Allora the following morning.

Note: No matter how you do date night, Atlantic Station’s 5-Star Concierge is here to help you plan the perfect evening!
