Where Atlanta - - NEWS - BY CHRIS WATKINS

There’s no short sup­ply of ex­pe­ri­ences for the “mod­ern man” in At­lanta, where you’re only a stone’s throw from be­spoke suit mak­ers, enig­matic cigar lounges and whiskey bars well-de­serv­ing of a hat tip. Add these es­sen­tial spots to your gen­tle­man’s itin­er­ary.

SID MASH­BURN

Sid Mash­burn is quite sim­ply, the fa­ther of dapper South­ern style as it stands in At­lanta today, and it all starts with “The Mash­burn Ap­point­ment.” This quin­tes­sen­tial suit­ing ex­pe­ri­ence in­cludes tai­lor­ing time with a highly skilled ar­ti­san of fine menswear re­sult­ing in a one-of-a-kind suit made to your ex­act spec­i­fi­ca­tions, from ma­te­rial and lin­ing to but­tons and pock­ets—a rite of pas­sage ev­ery man should have. 1198 How­ell Mill Road NW, 404.350.7135, sid­mash­burn.com.

THE SHAVE BAR­BER­SHOP

This well-to-do Vir­ginia Highland mus­tach­ery caters to men of all back­grounds and of­fers a rugged and mod­ern space where you can also stock up on bow ties and whiskeyscented beard oils. 630 N Highland Ave. NE, 404.565.0730, the­shave­bar­ber. com.

This epic at­trac­tion is a fast-paced jour­ney into your dream world of cars, with­out the ex­pense of own­ing one of these finely tuned ma­chines. The thrilling ex­pe­ri­ence puts the fa­mous Ger­man en­gi­neer­ing to the test by al­low­ing you to push the 911, Boxster, Cayenne and other mod­els to their limits on a spe­cialty track that sim­u­lates dif­fi­cult (and haz­ardous) road con­di­tions.

THE SOUTH­ERN GEN­TLE­MAN
