Shop Like A Local Atlantan On Bennett Street

Atlanta has some of the best shopping malls in the Southeast and, frankly, even the country. But it also has little nooks where small boutiques and restaurants flourish. They are not hard to find, exactly; let’s just say they’re hiding in plain sight.

Perhaps the best-known and oldest of these little shopping areas is Bennett Street in south Buckhead. Located right off Peachtree Street, it was a former warehouse district turned into a hip singles scene in the ’70s that was anchored by one of the city’s most famous watering holes, Harrison’s. Harrison’s is long gone, and Bennett Street evolved into an enclave of art studios, galleries, beauty salons, renovation experts, decorative art shops and clothing boutiques.

Here are some of our favorite Bennett Street gems.
