Romantic Atlanta: 6 Ideas to Dazzle Your Date
Whether you have a first date coming up or are looking for new ways to wow your sweetheart, Atlanta has everything you need for a heartfelt excursion. Check out our guide to the best romantic restaurants in Atlanta, some stellar places to take an afternoon date, and cute neighborhoods to check out with your honey.
Without further ado, here’s our whirlwind tour of the most romantic things to do in Atlanta!
1. Enjoy a Sweet Caffeine Burst at Cafe Intermezzo
Good conversation fuels any romantic outing, so get the morning buzzing with a latte from Café Intermezzo in Midtown. This Vienna-style coffeehouse boasts a dizzying array of coffee drinks and more than 70 pastries for nibbling. If you’re hungry for something more substantial, the café offers omelets, crepes, and sandwiches to keep you going all afternoon.
2. Root for the Home Team at Turner Field (While You Still Can!)
You and your date have probably heard about the Atlanta Braves’ upcoming move away from Turner Field. Not to worry, the team will be just 10 miles away from downtown, but you’ll still want to catch them on their beloved home turf before it’s too late. Bring your sweetie and your team spirit to a Braves game for an afternoon date homerun.
3. Stroll Through Downtown Roswell
If small town charm is up your date’s alley, be sure to head to Roswell. This cute little town just outside of Atlanta is home to restaurants, shopping, and cultural attractions. Share a pie at Real Fix Pizzeria, where the dough goes through a 96-hour long leavening process. Surely your love will last much longer, but it’s nice to know so much care went into your meal. We also recommend stopping by the Riverside Sounds Concert Series for a free outdoor concert the first Saturday of the month in Riverside Park.
4. Classic Dinner and a Movie Date
Cuddling up at the movies with your arm around your sweetie’s shoulder is a classic way to share some love. Take it to the next level at AMC Phipps Plaza 14 — a movie theater, bar, and restaurant combo. Say cheers with one of the movie theater’s upscale cocktails in its Hitchcock-themed bar and then pick out your favorite movie theater snack before catching a flick.
5. A Unique Dining Experience at 4th & Swift
If you’re hoping for something a little more upscale than dinner and a movie, be sure to head to Atlanta’s historic Old Fourth Ward to check out 4th & Swift. Your date will love the farm-to-table fine dining and award-winning wine list, which can be enjoyed at the lovely bar, inside at an elegant table, or under the twinkling lights of the patio. Bonus: impress your date with the Chef’s Tasting Menu for a delectable culinary experience.
6. Toast the Town at Polaris
Sipping cocktails while taking in a breathtaking view is one of the most romantic ways to end a day with your loved one. Polaris is a rotating restaurant and bar on the top floor of the Hyatt Regency Atlanta. You can gaze out of the large windows to see an expansive view of the city, then sit back with an upscale drink as you make eyes with your sweetheart.
Now that you know where to take your date in Atlanta, get ready for a fun-filled day of romance in one of our favorite romantic cities!
