One with Nature
Into the woods
REPORTER: Jake Kilroy

Nestled in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta, a treehouse offers up the beautiful swirl of southern comfort and universal imagination. Now, to tourists, that likely makes sense, to pop up such a down-home stay out in the wild woods of Georgia. But to locals, that may stir some eyebrows. Because even though guests are surrounded—practically swallowed whole—by exuberant woodland, what makes it more urban escape than rural playhouse is that Buckhead is best known for being a major commercial and financial district of high-rise offices, hotels, and condos. But as this secluded getaway proves, that doesn’t mean you can’t tuck in a tranquil treehouse out in the rolling hills.

REPORTER: Alyssa Brown

Rooted in the concept of cultivating a community within the Atlanta event sphere, crazy talented florist, Amy Osaba, opened up a killer event studio in her historic westside warehouse space.  For anyone looking to throw an event flooded with natural light, high ceilings, huge windows and exposed brick, this space is a dream come true.  There’s an authentic artsy feel to the venue that will have most creatives begging to utilize the space for more than just a party or two.

While the venue is also ideal for workshops, community classes, dinner parties, and cocktail parties, photographer Christina McNeill is showing off a rainy day wedding in the space that leaves onlookers with anything but the blues.

The Report

This venue is VRV (Venue Report Verified), we have personally visited this venue.

Welcome to midtown Atlanta, where seafood is king and nautical décor is queen. The princes and princesses are the sea faring travelers, and the court jester’s that one guy who’s always trying to buy everybody drinks at the bar. We love that guy. This restaurant celebrates the nautical lifestyleto perfection, while still providing you with the full Atlanta experience. At Lure (a fabulous name to top it off), you’ll get to experience not only some of Atlanta’s finest seafood cuisines, but do so in the pleasure of a beautifully driftwood-laden environment that bridges the gap of luxury and a thematic dining milieu. Just wait until you plunge your tridents into the coastal delights.

As the creative folks behind Lure say, "it's time to get hooked"

The Report

The Kingplow Event Gallery has been VRV (Venue Report Verified), meaning we have personally visited this venue. This turn-of-the-century renovated warehouse was originally built in 1890 and underwent a renovation in 1995, which places this puppy on the Historic Landmark Registry. Located just minutes from downtown and midtown Atlanta in the city’s emerging Westside neighborhood, the venue is in a very urban, artsy setting surrounded by a ton of great restaurants.  We really loved that the location indeed feels like an urban retreat and is in Atlanta's "Westside".

This renovated warehouse venue used to be a plow company. It boasts natural light, 30 ft ceilings, incredible warehouse windows, exposed brick, and vintage industrial door. Honoring its history, one of the venue spaces boasts contemporary paintings & historic "artifacts" from the building's industrial past. We loved the art-gallery vibe. It is ideally situated for corporate events, weddings, festive celebrations and elegant social events.
