Eclectic and trendy, Midtown is Atlanta's cosmopolitan heart. Meeting planners seek the city's vibrant and modern, energetic and avant-garde edge will it find here, especially with many cultural Midtown venues doubling as experience-enriching event venues.
Bounded by the Beltline on the east, I-85 and I-75 to the north, Northside Parkway on the west and North Avenue on the south, Midtown is a quick trip from the Hartsfield Jackson International Airport.
Home to Atlanta's famous Peachtree Street, lined with high-rise condos, 4 Star hotels and skyscrapers, Midtown stays a step ahead, and does it with attitude. Sophisticated hotel venues in Midtown define the area and cater to the hip business traveler with equally slick meeting venues, including the techno-vibe, 466-room W Midtown (with 30,000 square feet of meeting space, including the largest ballroom in Midtown) and the new Loews Atlanta Hotel (25,000 square feet of ballroom and meeting space).
Stroll-friendly, with sidewalk cafes and independent bars and boutiques, Midtown is known for its cultural attractions, including Woodruff Arts Center, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Center for Puppetry Arts, and the 14th Street Playhouse. Most of these offer meeting space as distinctive as their collections. Midtown meeting venues include the cherished High Museum, which has spaces that flaunt its stunning architecture, like the Robinson Atrium and Margaretta Taylor Lobby, which can accommodate 50 to 500 guests. The venerable Fox Theater hosts Broadway shows, opera, rock concerts; groups can book one of four opulent ballrooms to enjoy its 1920s splendor, including the Grand Salon with equally grand outdoor terrace. The Woodruff Arts Center includes 35,000 square feet of meeting space.
The beloved green space of Piedmont Park is Midtown's pride and joy; undergoing a 53-acre expansion, it offers 30,000 square feet of meeting space within its 200-plus acres. Groups may also meet at the adjoining Atlanta Botanical Garden, surrounded by their pick of magnificent, fragranced gardens, taking a break to check out the recently opened Canopy Walk, a 45-foot-high "skywalk" through the treetops of Storza Woods. The garden's many venues include the indoor, transparent Hardin Visitor Center and Conference Room, which can seat 100. The Atlanta division of the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) also offers creative event venues.
Those meeting in Atlanta can have their art and eat it too. Top-notch dining venues in Midtown excel at serving food that's as beautiful to look at as it is to eat: establishments include Miller Union, Empire State South, Bacchanalia and Abattoir, to name a few.
