BUCKHEAD

Brunch It Up
Pull up a prime seat on one of two patios at the new South City Kitchen and dig in to the classic Springer Mountain Farms fried chicken and malted buttermilk waffle. Sat. and Sun., @fifthgroup

Cocktails Call
A hidden gem in the heart of Buckhead, 1Kept pleases palates with its ever-changing inventive cuisine. Sidle up to the bar and order an Oh Sherry Baby, which features a spoonful of housemade red bell pepper jam. @1kept

Dinner Destination
Good luck ordering just one entree at Yebo Beach Haus, where the peri-peri chicken skillet, ostrich sliders, peppadew mac and cheese, and lollipop lamb chops all entice. @yebobeachhaus

#LateNightGoals
From Kaskade and Diplo to Steve Aoki and Nervo, DJs are flocking to spin at Gold Room. A mind-blowing light display, endless tables and top bottle service will keep you partying till the sun comes up. @goldroomatlanta

WESTSIDE

Brunch It Up
Shrimp and grits with a side of bocce ball? Don’t mind if we do! Head to Ormsby’s for boozy breakfast sips (hey, Monkey Mosa!), games galore and a must-try fried chicken jalapeno cheddar biscuit. Sat. and Sun., @ormsbys

Cocktails Call
A posh new rooftop patio at Westside Ironworks’ O-Ku Atlanta sets the mood for a wild night on the town. Kick off the good libations with a habanero-infused Sugar + Spice. @okuatlanta

Dinner Destination
Adjacent to O-Ku, the new Barcelona Wine Bar is alfresco dining at its best. Indulge in shareable charcuterie boards, sizzling paella skillets and a plethora of tasty tapas options while stopping by the sprawling center bar for vino. @barcelonawinebar

#LateNightGoals
Whether you’re enjoying live bands at JCT. Kitchen & Bar’s open-air bar, imbibing at the neon-laced Little Trouble or saving bucks at Marcel’s late-night $10 menu, Westside Provisions District ensures a palatable evening. @westsideprovisions

MIDTOWN

Brunch It Up
A choice place for cheering on your favorite soccer team while sipping bottomless mimosas, Fado Irish Pub delights with breakfast tacos, banana nut bread French toast or the all-day Irish breakfast plate. Sat. and Sun., @fadoirishpub

Cocktails Call
If you liked the old Establishment, prepare to fall in love with Establishment Midtown. Nestled in a private corner of Colony Square, its cozy patio decked out with string lights is the perfect happy-hour hot spot. Order a Paloma En Fuego with a side of house chips to share. @establishmentatl

Dinner Destination
Self-proclaimed “not your daddy’s steakhouse,” STK gets the party started with hearty filets, roasted game hen, Carolina Brook trout and a must-try seared scallop BLT. Follow each bite with a sip of the gin-spiked Gatsby. @eatstk

#LateNightGoals
Throw on your dancing shoes and book a private table with bottle service on one of two floors at Opera Nightclub. Upcoming performances include Paul Oakenfold (July 15), Cardi B (July 16) and Tchami (Aug. 12). @operanightclub

OLD FOURTH WARD

Brunch It Up
Stuff yourself at Brezza Cucina’s new Sunday brunch buffet, where piling your plate with buttermilk pancakes and shrimp and grits is perfectly acceptable. Don’t forget a Campari mimosa or peach sangria to wash it all down. @brezzacucina

Cocktails Call
When you want cocktails big on flavor, head to The Mercury and ask for owner-mixologist Julian Goglia. The piece de resistance? The flower-adorned Mai Tai. Stop back on Merc Monday when all cocktails are half price. @themercuryatl

Dinner Destination
Dive fork first into BBQ PEI mussels, smoked trout beignets or cast-iron fried chicken at Venkman’s, where your food comes with a healthy side of live music and cheeky cocktails. @venkmansatl

#LateNightGoals
With names like Macy Gray, Dave Barnes and Michael Tolcher gracing its stage, the newly opened City Winery wows with an eclectic lineup of performers, made-in-house wines and global cuisine housed in a massive two-story venue at Ponce City Market. @citywineryatl

INMAN PARK

Brunch It Up
A Parisian affair in Instagram-worthy environs awaits at newbie Bread & Butterfly. Say oui oui to the Champagne cocktail and avocado and radish toast or an omelette du jour. Sat. and Sun., @bread_and_butterfly

Cocktails Call
Nestled in the back corner of Krog Street Market lies Ticonderoga Club, a watering hole making waves thanks to its top-notch sips. Choice options include the Hootchy Cider Punch and signature Ticonderoga Cup. @ticonderogaclub

Dinner Destination
Inman Quarter new-kid-on-the-block Hampton + Hudson has arrived with elevated fare like onion ring poutine, cool ranch chicharrones, smoked eggplant dip and the handheld Spies Like Us burger. @hamptonhudson

#LateNightGoals
Elevate your evening with a trip through Krog Street Market. Grab a cold one at Hop City; duke it out for a table at Superica, and get your grub on with the queso fundido; then sneak a sweet treat at Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams. @krogstmarket

VIRGINIA-HIGHLAND

Brunch It Up
Take your taste buds to carb heaven at Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit, where handmade biscuits (the cinnamon and country ham are JEZ faves) with an array of toppings await. The ultimate indulgence? Grits served in a biscuit bowl. @callieshotlittlebiscuitatl

Cocktails Call
An oldie but a goodie, pop in Genki Noodles & Sushi for sparkling sake (Banzai Bunny Blueberry, anyone?), wine and Champagne options galore, and, of course, sake bombs. Boom goes the dynamite! @genkiatl

Dinner Destination
Oh, Tom Catherall, how we’ve missed you and your Trailer Park tacos. TomTom luckily has resurrected that Noche fave and more. Menu highlights include The Mac Burger, Nashville tacos and avocado bruschetta.

#LateNightGoals
Packed wall-to-wall every weekend, Dark Horse Tavern is a Va-Hi staple thanks to its two outdoor patios, five HDTVs for prime sports viewing and its six-days-a-week live-band karaoke options at the underground 10 High club. @darkhorseatlanta
