Eat. Drink. Shop. Support Midtown businesses.

Many of us have been away from the things we love experiencing in Midtown. And hope continues to grow stronger each day that we will soon get back to what we’ve been missing. Like shopping for gifts and browsing in a store. Eating a meal at a restaurant or grabbing drinks. Sitting down in the salon for a haircut or manicure. Seeing a show in a theatre. Hanging out around other people. Finding adventure in the heart of Atlanta.  
 
There’s a lot to love here. And Midtown businesses have missed you just as much as you have missed them. When you’re ready to come back, we’ve got a bunch of ideas to help you get reacquainted. Check out these simple actions you can take to support Midtown businesses:

 

Give the gift card made especially for the Midtown ATL neighborhood. 

Accepted at 40+ locations and counting, it’s an easy and worthwhile way to spend money in-person at stores, restaurants, hotels, and more in the district. The new MidtownATL community gift card can be sent by email or text to friends, family, colleagues, employees, and clients. It works just like a regular gift card but can be used all over our community. And when you use it, you're putting much needed revenue back into Midtown businesses.

  • Use our updated directory and maps to get plugged back into what’s here and what’s changed since you’ve been away from Midtown.
