Your Guide to Atlanta Downtown Shopping

Peachtree Center

If you’re looking for a convenient shopping area directly in Downtown Atlanta, feel free to check out Peachtree Center. This large business neighborhood includes dozens of shops and restaurants worth exploring, all connected via expertly designed skywalks. Where Peachtree Center shines is in the sheer number of cuisines available. No matter what food you’re in the mood for, you can find a restaurant to satisfy that craving! Keep in mind that some improvements are currently underway and may cause minor inconveniences or temporary closures. Check out their renovations page for more information.

Underground Atlanta

While Peachtree Center is undergoing partial renovations, Underground Atlanta is in the midst of a major revitalization. This historic area of Downtown Atlanta was once a thriving shopping and entertainment district, but it’s now in need of a facelift to get it where it needs to be. It is currently closed, but be sure to keep an eye out on their website for construction progress! The plans for renovations look promising, and we’re excited to see Underground Atlanta’s new look!

Ponce City Market

Take a ten-minute drive from Downtown to find Ponce City Market. Located in a revitalized landmark building, Ponce City is not your average shopping mall. Inside, peruse the Central Food Hall to indulge in tasty foods crafted by James Beard Award-winning chefs. There are top-notch restaurants, bakeries and candy shops. If you’re looking for clothing and fashion shops, there are plenty of great options here. You can even take an elevator ride to The Roof and enjoy miniature golf, drinks, carnival games, and stunning panoramic views of Atlanta.

Westside Provisions District

For high-end shops and boutiques, we recommend heading over to the Westside Provisions District. Just 15 minutes from Downtown, it’s an entire district dedicated to fine dining and unique shopping. Here, you can find the highest quality and highly-sought after products from clothing to jewelry and furniture. Their shops include Ann Mashburn, Sid Mashburn, Hudson Grace, and Peridot West. After browsing for the perfect items, take home a bottle of fine wine from Perrine’s Wine Shop or sit down for a delicious, sizzling steak at Marcel.

Local tip: If you struggle to find parking at peak times, there’s valet service available.

Phipps Plaza

Just a little further north, you can check out Phipps Plaza in the heart of Buckhead. This indoor mall is another fantastic option for high-end shopping. Explore over 100 stores, including Gucci, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Versace, and more. If you want to catch a showing of the latest blockbuster, you can pause your shopping and head over to the 14-screen movie theater! For a post-movie meal, we suggest the tasty options at The Tavern at Phipps or Davio’s.

Lenox Square

If you’re in the mood to shop-till-you-drop, you can check out Lenox Square across the street from Phipps Plaza. Here, you’ll find an abundance of additional destinations for shopping and dining. The facade of the mall, with a two-story glass entrance, is spectacular. Step through the porte-cochere and explore Cartier, Macy’s, Vineyard Vines, and many more. For dinner, grab a slice from California Pizza Kitchen or sit down for a quiet meal at Zinburger Wine & Burger Bar.

Shops Around Lenox

Another excellent option in Buckhead is Shops Around Lenox. This outdoor mall features street artwork and murals from local artists, adding a little beauty and culture to your time there.  Shops Around Lenox even organized itineraries for customized experiences at the mall. Depending on your preferences, they tell you the best shops and eateries to check out!
