Luxury, couture and gourmet reign supreme in Buckhead, long considered the “Beverly Hills of the East.” Luxury-focused Phipps Plaza and mid-priced Lenox Square Mall sit across from each other and just down the street from the area’s newest shopping destination. In September 2014, the six-block Buckhead Atlanta development opened, combining the walkable streets of Paris with the haute shops of Rodeo Drive. Adding to the neighborhood’s already vast selection of top-notch restaurants and highend shops, Buckhead Atlanta’s tenants include Hermès, Christian Louboutin, Etro, Theory, Le Bilboquet, Thirteen Pies, Shake Shack and many more. Buckhead is home to the Atlanta History Center’s 33-acre campus, which includes one of the largest Civil War exhibits in the U.S. Miami Circle is replete with interior-design stores, vintage shops and art galleries.
