The Bat­tery At­lanta

Where Atlanta - - EDITOR’S ITINERARY -

Open­ing at once with the MLB At­lanta Braves' SunTrust Park, The Bat­tery At­lanta cov­ers a whole lot of ground in the worlds of din­ing, en­ter­tain­ment, re­tail and even of­fice space. This mas­sive de­vel­op­ment, which is spear­headed by the Braves, al­lows base­ball fans to make a day, night or even week­end of their game-day plans.

While you can eas­ily spend hours shop-hop­ping, din­ing at the ex­cep­tional ros­ter of restau­rants, tak­ing in a con­cert and even stay­ing overnight at the 260-room Omni Ho­tel, we have some point­ers if you're short on time.

With only 90 min­utes to spare, we rec­om­mend skip­ping the 400,000 square feet of re­tail (un­less, of course, shop­ping is your goal), and grab­bing a drink at one of the many restau­rants helmed by some of At­lanta's most ac­claimed chefs.

Pick from Hugh Ach­e­son’s First & Third Hot Dog and Sausage Shack, Lin­ton Hop­kins’ C. El­let’s steak­house or Ford Fry’s El Felix, among oth­ers. Mark Wahlberg and his fam­ily are also bring­ing their burger chain, Wahlburg­ers, to the de­vel­op­ment. With a drink or ap­pe­tizer un­der your belt, head to the im­pres­sive Punch Bowl So­cial—this is the chain's first lo­ca­tion in Ge­or­gia. The two-story, 27,000-square-foot en­ter­tain­ment pow­er­house fea­tures eight bowl­ing lanes, a bocce court, three pri­vate karaoke rooms, a cus­tom 360-de­gree bar, and—wait for it—a 2,200-square-foot rooftop pa­tio. Punch Bowl So­cial's menu also hap­pens to be de­signed by Hugh Ach­e­son, and fea­tures de­lec­ta­ble South­ern fare and a craft cock­tail pro­gram.
