So, when it comes to your guys’ day checklist, here are just a few options that’ll make it one to remember.

Best places for breakfast

You have to start the day off with the breakfast of champions! You can grab just that at Buttermilk Kitchen or Home grown GA restaurant, both finalists in the best breakfast category. Or, you can head straight to the fan fav and winner of the category, Waffle House.

Best places to get fresh and clean for the day

Now that you’re nice and full, it’s time to make sure you and your ride are looking spiffy for the day. You can head to Wade Phadez for the best haircut in town, since he was voted best barber. You’ll also find Esra Demir or Kika Mcneal – Bishops Cuts/Color on the list, as they served as finalist.

Now that your sweet tooth is calling, Café Intermezzo, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams and Marietta Diner have you covered on all the best desserts.

Wash all that good food down with a drink at one of the best brewery’s in town SweetWater Brewing Company, The Lost Druid, or Monday Night Brewing. You can also get your fix by heading to the best sports bar voted by Access Atlanta readers, Taco Mac. With other options, including Grindhouse and Hudson Grille, you can enjoy a game and a good drink all at once.

Or if you’re looking to have a little more leisure with your libations, the best bars with games include Ormsby’s, My Parents Basement in Avondale, and Battle and Brew.

Best places to end the night

Top the night off with a few laughs with friends at The Punchline Comedy Club, voted best comedy club by your Access Atlanta neighbors. Laughing Skull Lounge and Dad’s Garage are also on the list for the best laughs.

If you’re more in the mood to dance the night away, Clermont Lounge, Havana Night Club ATL or Oscar’s Bar will have the music for every mood.

What a day! The fun part is, there are so many more options to choose from. Just head over to see our full list of Best of Atlanta award winners. Don’t forget voting for the 2023 Best of Atlanta awards will be coming up this year so be prepared to vote at!
