Best of Atlanta 2015

Affordable Massage: SensAbility

If you relax at the thought of a bargain, book an appointment at SensAbility, the student clinic at the Atlanta School of Massage in Dunwoody, where you can score a 50-minute rubdown for just $40 from a therapist in training.
The Sentimentalist

Bridal Gowns: The Sentimentalist

It may not boast the racks and racks of options that you’ll find at a big-box store, but what the Sentimentalist does have is an intimate, romantic vibe and staffers who shower brides-to-be with personal attention.
Doggy Dogg

Hot Dogs: Doggy Dogg

Let’s say, hypothetically, that you’ve had one too many cocktails at Kimball House, where the kitchen closes at midnight. Solution? Stumble across the street for one of James Hammerl’s quirky gourmet hot dogs, available until 2 a.m. on weekends.
Elite Edge Fitness Center

Bootcamps: Elite Edge Fitness Center

In the open workout room at Elite Edge, it’s not unusual to see NFL hopefuls sweating through agility drills on one end while muscle-bound moms perform medicine ball tosses on the other.
Avalon

Place to Drink and Shop: Avalon

Almost unbelievably, Avalon’s liberal-with-a-capital-L open container policy lets you roam the entire property with a boozy drink in hand.
reflexology

Reflexology: Jiao

When you’re ready to show your aching tootsies some love, head to this small Chinese spa that specializes in foot reflexology.
Revival

Cornbread: Revival

We’re told that the recipe is bestowed upon only one person in Kevin Gillespie’s family at any given time. The story could be full of lard, but who cares—his cornbread triangles cooked in a cast-iron skillet are pure genius.
Cococo Home

Place to Buy a Sofa: Cococo Home

In this cozy Buckhead showroom, you’ll find leather man-cave couches as wide as a truck and upholstery hues you can’t imagine anyone wanting in their living room.
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.
Free Art Friday

Urban Scavenger Hunt: Free Art Friday

Every week, local creators hide small pieces of art on windowsills, inside phone booths, and on MARTA train platforms—all in the spirit of Free Art Friday, an international movement to bring art to the masses.
