Just because baseball season is over doesn’t mean The Battery Atlanta isn’t hopping! A true entertainment experience 365 days a year—not just on game days—the mixeduse destination features a diverse blend of culinary options, unique chopping shopping opportunities, a concert venue, bowling alley and more.
A carefully curated retail mix offers a unique collection of boutiques and flagship retail locations. Predictably, there is a Braves Clubhouse Store, Baseballism specializing in apparel inspired by America’s Pastime and Mizuno, but also the trendy and affordable DressUp boutique, Sugarboo & Co.’s whimsical paper goods and South End Trading Company’s beautiful collection of gifts for those who love the South. From gifts to outdoor gear and everything in-between, The Battery has shopping for everyone. Shopping isn’t the only jones you’ll fix at The Battery—with an enviable selection of dining options from world-renowned chefs, we would suggest you come hungry. Fans of Garden & Gun won’t want to miss The Garden & Gun Club, a premier cocktail and social establishment that brings the defining Southern lifestyle brand to life. The bar and Club Yard are first come, first served, but you’ll need a reservation for the elegant Dining Room.
For a more casual atmosphere, check out Wahlburgers from the famous Wahlberg family (New Kid Donnie, Marky Mark sans the Funky Bunch, Chef Paul). The casual, music-filled, burgerand-fries atmosphere make it the perfect stop for families. For a kid-free environment, enjoy your meal and cocktail with a smoke at Burn by Rocky Patel cigar lounge.
If you’re looking for a little fun when the Braves aren’t in town, check out Punch Bowl Social for bowling, bocce ball and karaoke. In addition to craft cocktails, they serve weekend brunch, lunch, dinner and late-night snacks by culinary partner and Top Chef star Hugh Acheson. PBR Bar & Grill also offers a great opportunity for fun (and photos)—its bar features a mechanical bull. There’s also a great opportunity for live entertainment at the Coca-Cola Roxy Theatre, a 3,600-capacity venue that hosts approximately 40 shows per year and presents a diverse range of local, national and international artists and bands.
Don’t feel like leaving? Omni Hotel offers luxury accommodations and world-class amenities for those who want to stay more than just a day. Want to make it a little more permanent? Cortland at the Battery Atlanta offers one- and two bedroom apartments, right in the middle of all the action.
