Buckhead Village District (formerly The Shops Buckhead Atlanta) is another addition to the luxurious Buckhead community. This eight-block neighborhood contains everything you need for a successful adventure. From high-end retail such as Hermes to bowling and dining options that span the globe, Buckhead Village District has it all.
The ultra-walkable, eight-block complex is a place to mix and mingle in a comfortable but luxurious setting. Developers have been quick to say the area is not a mall, but rather the redevelopment of a chunk of Buckhead.
The retail side of things is anchored by Hermes, Atlanta-started Spanx and Etro. Dining options in the Buckhead Village District span from high-end to super affordable, including the first Shake Shack in Georgia. Currently on the menu is The Southern Gentleman, Gypsy Kitchen, Georgetown Cupcakes and Doraku Sushi.

Atlanta Streetcar is the city’s modern-day trolley, carrying passengers from the convention and entertainment district to the eastside of the city.
