Where to go, What to do in Atlanta and beyond
Arts & Theatre
Roxy Theatre – The Coca Cola Roxy Theatre is Buckhead has incredible performances coming up. Though the venue is large it feels intimate. VIP box seats are the way to go. They are on the top floor with spectacular views of the stage and comfy seating. Plus, it gets you access to a VIP lounge area with its own private bar. Coming on May 1st is Billy Idol. https://roamilicious.com/roxy-theatre-atlanta/

Food, Wine and Wellness
Mandarin Oriental – The spa at the Mandarin Oriental has totally been redone. There are new rooms, sauna and hot tub. Massages are offered daily and they have a special Year of the Earth dog massage that comes with hot stones and special essential oils. That is available now until Feb. 4th, 2019. The best way to do it is to go for a massage and then stay for afternoon tea. Their special Chinese New Year tea is available until March 2nd. It features Barbeque Pork Buns (Cha Siu Bao), Dumplings (Guotie), Duck Gua-Bao and sweet Sesame Balls and of course a selection of luxury teas. I’d recommend the Eros or the Chai. Definitely a terrific way to treat yourself. https://www.mandarinoriental.com/atlanta/buckhead/luxury-hotel/news-events

Restaurant pick of the week – 9 Mile Station
Located at Ponce City Market, this is the rooftop restaurant adjacent to Skyline Park. Not only are there gorgeous views of the Atlanta skyline, but you can also get entry to Skyline park without paying the $10 admission price. Go for brunch and have the Banana Stuffed French Toast or the Pretzel Benedict.
