Address: 6000 N. Terminal Pkwy., Atlanta, GA
Why You Should Go: Hova, who some claim is the king of rap, is a fan of ATL and he's paid homage by opening up this bar and lounge at the Atlanta airport. Next time you're traveling, hit up 40/40 for a drink, Jay-Z style.
Escobar Restaurant & Tapas
Address:327 Peters St. S.W., Atlanta, GA
Why You Should Go: This super classy lounge is owned by rapper and Atlanta-native 2 Chainz. With all the drinks, fine dining and hookah, this should definitely be a target for your next night out on the town.
Address: 110 Centennial Olympic Park Dr., Ste. 102-104, Atlanta, GA
Why You Should Go: This Roaring '20s-style bar in the heart of the city is definitely where you want to go if you're seeking speakeasy vibes. Many don't know that it's owned by Carolina Panther's QB, Cam Newton.
Address: 2 Galleria Pkwy, #1c-27, Atlanta, GA
Why You Should Go: If you're a Braves fan, you definitely need to hit up Murph's if you haven't already. This baseball-themed bar and restaurant, owned by Atlanta Braves stars Dale Murphy and Freddie Freeman, serves up super yummy bar food with a twist.
Nic & Norman's
Address: 20 Main St., Senoia, GA
Why You Should Go: As most know, The Walking Dead is filmed in Atlanta, so it's no surprise that Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) owns this spot in Senoia. Totally worth the drive (less than an hour) to try the yummy burgers and apps.
Address: 281 Peters St. S.W., Atlanta, GA
Why You Should Go: Rasheeda and Kirk Frost from Love and Hip Hop Atlanta recently opened this bistro and lounge in September 2019. The couple knows what they're doing because the food and atmosphere are equally stellar (get the lobster, you'll thank us later).
