Dating for Romantics in Atlanta


Fox Theatre

660 Peachtree St Ne, Atlanta, GA 30308

Catching any theatrical outfit, comedian or band at the Fox is an awesomely romantic experience. But there's something about seeing a movie in the spectacular space that really revs the aphrodisiac-o-meter. The Fox shows classic movies throughout the year, so check the schedule for your next opportunity.


W Hotel-Downtown

45 Ivan Allen Jr. Boulevard, Atlanta, GA 30308

Imagine this: After enjoying Prohibition-era cocktails at Drinkshop, you get escorted to the private 30th floor helipad, where a chopper is waiting to take you and your date on a half-hour flight around Downtown and Buckhead. Back on the ground, you return to the W for dinner at BLT Steak. Reservations are made through Air Atlanta Helicopters (770-458-7771).


Canoe

4199 Paces Ferry Road NW, Atlanta, GA 30339

Canoe's rustic and elegant setting is nearly outdone by the walk-able outdoor gardens and view of the Chattahoochee River. In short, you feel like you're a million miles away from Atlanta. Crab cakes and slow-roasted rabbit highlight a decadent but ultra-reliable American menu. It's not only one of the city's most romantic--it's one of the best.


Sauced Restaurant & Lounge

753 Edgewood Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30307

Got a sweet tooth? Make it a sweet date. Sauced, Inman Park's witty 1970s cocktail lounge, has become a late-night dessert stop in Atlanta, with a selection of mini icebox pies, salted chocolate ganache bars and homemade parfaits.


Buckhead Grand Spa

3338 Peachtree Rd. NE, Atlanta, GA 30326

Don't laugh, dudes. Spa treatments make good gifts for your gal-pal, but they can make for great dates, too. Buckhead Grand Spa offers a variety of couples massages that include Swedish, deep tissue and hot stone variations and they take place within the spa's couples suite with a private shower. Um, yeah.
