The Battery Atlanta
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.
