Got a rehearsal dinner to plan in Atlanta? While Atlanta has an abundance of beautiful scenery with gorgeous backdrops for the special event, there are several hidden gems that would be the perfect spot for your evening. Here are my picks for best places in Atlanta for a rehearsal dinner. 

  • Atlanta History Center – Don't let the name throw you off. You'd be surprised that among the glamorous cityscape of Buckhead lies lots of lush green. Plus, you can say your event was held in the same spot as famous movies like "The Hunger Games." 

  • Canoe – The stunning views of the river make this a terrific spot for a rehearsal dinner. Canoe has several private rooms for a more intimate event. 

  • Davio's – Who doesn't love Italian? Davio's in Buckhead executes lovely Italian dishes and offers just the right space. 

  • Georgian Terrace – The gorgeous Midtown hotel not only serves impressive cuisine, but the historical building is a place your out-of-town guests will love. 

  • One Midtown Kitchen – The beautiful shimmering lights and modern American cuisine paired with magnificent wines make ONE a good choice for your rehearsal dinner.

  • Twelve Eighty – Located at the Woodruff Arts Center, the lovely setting is perfect for those with a fondness for architecture. The food is quite inventive, too.

  • Sun in My Belly – If you are looking for a venue that is more on the casual side, Sun in My Belly is for you. The kitschy spot was once a hardware store. Surprisingly, the special events or supper club menus are quite inventive.

  • Trolley Barn – If you love history, architecture and historical buildings, Inman Park's Trolley Barn is an exceptional choice. The 30-foot ceilings give this spot a nice ambiance for a wedding reception or rehearsal dinner. 

  • TWO Urban Licks – Besides the sexy vibe that TWO exudes, there's a gorgeous private dining room that features a waterfall in the middle of the table. 

  • Villa Christina – Tucked away close to Perimeter Mall is Hyatt Atlanta Perimeter at Villa Christina. The beautiful landscaped gardens are optimal for rehearsal dinners. 

There are plenty of options for unforgettable Atlanta dining, even if you've got a large group to feed. Congratulations and bon appétit!
