The Best Shopping Opportunities in Midtown Atlanta

Will Letton


Midtown Atlanta is a combination of buildings with magnificently historic architecture married with offices, restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. In this location, you can easily move from dining to shopping on foot. The walkability rating in this area is high, with restored sidewalks and a strip of business that continues to grow as residential populations expand. With decades of improvements and construction, this space in central Atlanta has become one of the most popular spots to grab a bite to eat, meet with friends, browse exciting and innovative art pieces or find original items in authentic shops. The retail destinations designed specifically for Midtown are worth a visit.

The second floor focuses on community vendors, while the rooftop offers private and public events with a skyline view.

Colony Square

Between 14th and 15th Streets on Peachtree Street, this mixed-use group of buildings includes the best retail shops combined with condominiums and offices and is a well-known attraction in the area. This shopping haven and food lover's favorite dates back to the 1970s. As the oldest high-rise development in Atlanta, it underwent a reimagination project to modernize the design and encourage community gathering by adding a massive food hall amidst top retail boutiques and shops with open-air lounge spaces to relax. Events are frequently scheduled with live music and performances to celebrate the thriving community in Midtown.
