Residents enjoy the absolute best in upscale dining and entertainment options. The country's premier chefs flock to Atlanta to make a name for themselves in the culinary world, and the citizens of Brookwood get to reap the tasty rewards.
At Bones steakhouse, residents can dine on the best steak and seafood in the city, and some would argue, the country. This establishment features classic details, such as white linen tablecloths, dark wood paneling and leather dining chairs. Patrons enjoy the feel of an old gentleman's club and the attentive service of waiters well-versed in food and wine.
While the menu features most dishes that diners would expect at any steakhouse, the quality of the food and skill in preparation cannot be beat. The fillet mignon pairs well with the truffle butter mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus for a complete meal that manages to feel both simple and decadent at the same time.
Down the street at Holeman and Finch, diners can enjoy another upscale, yet slightly more affordable restaurant that also provides more of a modern take on both decor and dishes. The dining room incorporates metal elements to give the restaurant more of an industrial feel that mirrors other parts of the city. Popular plates include oxtail and rabbit and dumplings. Diners enjoy a variety of rare meats and other unique pairings, such as the roasted carrots that come with jalapeño pesto and pecans. The chefs have created a lot of unique flavor combinations that keep residents coming back.
This restaurant also serves as a popular place to meet up for drinks. In addition to a full menu of craft beers and whiskeys, bartenders also create popular cocktails. Order the classic sloe gin fizz, or go for one of the house specials like the bit in Japan, which is made with bourbon, averell, lemon and grenadine.
For a night out, residents have their choice of upscale clubs and lounges where they can grab a drink and enjoy the patio or hit the dance floor. At Whiskey Blue, visitors tend to gravitate towards the rooftop patio, where they can sip on specialty cocktails and enjoy views of the city. The Sanctuary Night Club and Lounge plays Latin music, hosts free salsa lessons throughout the week and has plenty of VIP booths for those looking for a little privacy.
Other neighborhood entertainment options include enjoying outdoor concerts at the Chastain Park
Amphitheatre, visiting the Atlanta History Center, or heading out for a day of fun at Legoland.
