1. The St. Regis Atlanta

Eighty-Eight, West Paces Ferry Rd NW
Atlanta, GA 30305
(404) 563-7900
Visit Website

After a year at home, it’s time for some pampering — and you can find it poolside at the St. Regis Hotel in Buckhead. Book a room and head straight to the pool where you can wade in the crystal clear waters and relax in one of the comfy lounge chairs. In between dips, have one of their poolside butlers bring you a refreshing drink. You can’t go wrong with the frosé, made extra delicious with Grey Goose Essences Strawberry & Lemongrass.

If you’re craving manchego and patatas bravas, then Gypsy Kitchen in Buckhead is a must-visit. And while you’re luxuriating in the Spanish-inspired decor and enjoying expertly prepared tapas, we suggest ordering a Seville Rose. It’s a sweet-spicy drink that blends Grey Goose, ginger, lemon, and a rose-spice infusion.

Located on the third level of American Cut, the Regent Cocktail Club is swanky as all get-out. Sit outside and enjoy the Buckhead view while sipping the Legiterally, a fruity concoction made with Grey Goose, pineapple gomme syrup, and angostura bitters. Have a sweet tooth? Try the Not So Espresso martini with Grey Goose, coffee liqueur, and simple syrup. And if you get hungry, there’s a menu stacked with bar bites like sliders and guac and chips.

4. Le Bilboquet

3027 Bolling Way NE
Atlanta, GA 30305
(404) 869-9944
Visit Website

Some Atlantans say that Le Bilboquet is as close to Paris as it gets in the Big Peach. With its sun-filled dining room, chic al fresco seating area, and crispy frites, we’re inclined to believe them. Go for lunch and order something light yet delicious like the seared salmon or cajun chicken paired with the Afternoon In Nice (Grey Goose Peach, blood orange ginger shrub, lemon juice, and Earl Grey bitters). All that’s missing is the view of the Eiffel Tower, but Buckhead Village is a great substitute.

In Turkish, pasha means an officer of high rank. Be your own pasha, and head to this gem of a restaurant where they serve Mediterranean-inspired dishes in a high-end setting. Anything you sink your teeth into there — from shrimp kebabs to smoked eggplant, to a juicy wagyu burger — is bound to be flavorful and delicious. If you go for brunch, though, don’t skip the Queen Bowl, a mega-sized cocktail made with Grey Goose Essences White Peach & Rosemary, lemonade, peach slices, and soda.

Try the Espressotini, made with Grey Goose, house made coffee liqueur and Café Bustelo. Come hungry, too, because the snacks like smoked onion dip and sweet curry mussels are not to be missed.

Atlanta, GA 30318
(404) 464-8096
Visit Website

You’ll find Forza Storico adjacent to the Westside Provisions District’s courtyard. It’s the sister restaurant of Storico Fresco so you know their Roman-inspired dishes are legit (twirl up the cacio e pepe and you’ll see what we mean). Indulge in a meal of pasta and antipasti like the fried squash blossoms, but plan on staying for a while to soak up the Italian ambiance. At the end of the evening, wind down with something a little sweet like the espresso martini made with Grey Goose, espresso, and chicory and espresso liqueur.

Spritzes and summertime are a dream team which is why you should order the Rooftop Spritz made with Grey Goose, cucumber, lime, sugar, and soda.

12. Vesper Atlanta

924 Garrett St suite D
Atlanta, GA 30316
(404) 963-6902
Visit Website

Eat, drink, and be merry at this upscale-yet-casual joint in Glenwood Park. When it comes to food, it has elevated pub-grub like lobster quesadillas and flatbread pizzas. There’s a bit of a throwback vibe here (ICYMI: the Vesper was James Bond’s choice of martini in the book Casino Royale) and that translates to the drinks which are modern with a mid-century twist. Whatever you order it will be decidedly cool, especially if you choose a drink made with Grey Goose Essences, a line of vodkas infused with fruits and botanical essences that have zero carbs and sugar. Try the Rosy Cheeks which is a fizzy-tangy blend of Grey Goose Essences Strawberry & Lemongrass, Martini & Rossi Fiero, lemonade, and sparkling rosé.
