Best of Atlanta 2015

Our annual roundup of everything spectacular, exceptional, riveting, entertaining, stylish, and delicious.
Topgolf

New Adult Playground: Topgolf Midtown

Don’t be put off by the name. The new intown outpost of this behemoth indoor fairway is less country club and more upscale sports bar/party space.
Tom Houck Civil Rights Tour

New Tour: Tom Houck’s Civil Rights Tour

Civil Rights Tour Atlanta, a new three-hour tour organized by Houck, the former aide and driver to Martin Luther King Jr., offers an insider’s perspective into the daily lives of Atlanta’s heralded activists.
Le Fat

New Asian: Le Fat

Brunch Buffet: Local Three

This is a buffet with class, where fluffy eggs and biscuits coated in fennel sausage gravy are often served alongside fresh batches of “Rocky Road” pancakes, triangles of lemon custard French toast, and hoppin’ John with braised Heritage Farms Cheshire Pork.

New Bakery: Proof Bakeshop

Inman Park’s newest bakery isn’t just a place to score sweet slices of lemon pound cake, crumbly Linzer cookies, and savory, eggy scones (try the cheddar and chive).

First-Date Bar: Skylounge at the Glenn Hotel

Drinks are stiff, and the crowd at the bar is usually pretty sparse until after 10.
Okonomiyaki at Illegal Food

Fries: Okonomiyaki at Illegal Food

Don’t let the intimidating pronunciation stop you from ordering these satisfying Osaka-style fries, festooned with pickled ginger, fermented chili sauce, toasted seaweed, and Japanese mayo—all topped with pencil shavings of bonito flakes (dried and fermented fish).

Luggage: Macy’s at Lenox

In a city home to the world’s busiest airport, this Lenox Square department store is the place for baggage pickup.

Literary Geek Gathering: Write Club Atlanta

You wouldn’t necessarily expect a “battle royale” theme at a literary event. But it’s what makes Write Club Atlanta—a spirited competition in which two of the city’s best wordsmiths go head-to-head—so exciting.
