Whether you’re more into a low-key get-together or just want to booze it up, we’ve got you covered for any and every type of birthday celebration you’d like to have in Atlanta. Keep reading for our recommendations on how to have a bougie, boozy, sporty, or laid-back birthday celebration!

Tiny Lou’s – Blondie Pastry | Jewelry by Solomon Brothers

For a bougie birthday in Atlanta:  

1. Splurge on sushi and drinks on the rooftop of O-Ku. O-Ku serves up truly delicious drinks and authentic Japanese fare right in the heart of West Midtown. Their Lychee Caipirnha  is a delicious mix of cahaca, lime, and lychee and if you’re truly looking to splurge, go for their O-Ku Omakase, a chef’s tasting that will leave you speechless. 

2. Enjoy top-notch Greek food at Kyma. Go Mediterranean at Kyma and enjoy the freshest of seafood. Be sure to save room for dessert–their banana kataifi is to die for!

3. Sip on cocktails at Bar Margot. Nestled in the Four Seasons in Midtown, Bar Margot’s cocktails and desserts are the perfect birthday treat! Their Biscoff cream pie will surely impress both your eyes and your tastebuds!

4. Dine at Char then barcrawl through Inman Park. Char’s open-air seating and delicious Korean and Asian fusion fare would be the perfect start to an evening out in Inman Park. Make the sangria at Barcelona your next stop!
