Buckhead/West Midtown

Buckhead is the city's main shopping district, anchored by the upscale Phipps Plaza and neighboring Lenox Square. One of the most vivid examples of Atlanta's organic gayness occurs each Saturday afternoon in Lenox Square, when hundreds of LGBT residents and visitors descend on the mall to flirt and show off their fashions (and presumably do some shopping). After an afternoon of shopping, crowds flock to Woofs, a gay-friendly sports bar, for poker nights and viewing parties.

The Buckhead neighborhood also has the honor of being the part-time home of Sir Elton John, who has owned a condo on Peachtree Road since 1990, and named his 2004 album after the famous street.

West Midtown is one of the freshest neighborhoods in Atlanta, with its recent revitalization highlighted by the development of Atlantic Station. The mixed-use Atlantic Station combines metropolitan living with big-city shopping, and has quickly become one of the most popular venues in Atlanta. West Midtown is also home to the new White Star Provisions District, with shopping and upscale eateries.
