The New American Shakespeare Tavern

This Midtown dinner theater provides good food and great Shakespearean entertainment. The Atlanta Shakespeare Company, that manages The New American Shakespeare Tavern, was the first American company to perform at London's Globe Theatre. A traditional English pub meal is offered during the hour before the show. A full bar features Harp, Bass and Guinness, as well as a few wines. Seating is done on a first-come, first-served basis, so arrive early. Call for performance schedule.

Rialto Center for the Arts

The Rialto Center for the Arts is an acoustically splendid, 833-seat, state-of-the-art theater. It is situated in the historic Fairlie-Poplar district of downtown Atlanta. The Rialto's seasonal series runs from early October through May and boasts an eclectic array of dance, music and theater performances and comedy shows. Tickets for all events can be ordered by phone, mail or fax, or by visiting the Rialto box office at the corner of Forsyth and Luckie Streets.

Fox Theatre

This National Historic Landmark was built in 1929 as a Shrine temple, but through most of its storied history, it has served as Atlanta's premier theatrical venue. The Fox Theater is a marvel of Middle Eastern Revival architecture that spans a full city block, it is one of the largest theatres built in America during the golden age of the movies. Today, the theatre maintains a steady schedule of Broadway shows, operas, symphonic performances and rock concerts. Tours are available, but the best way to experience the Fox Theatre is through the night in the town.

Centennial Olympic Park

A rolling oasis nestled in the heart of downtown Atlanta, this lush park is interspersed with sprawling rock gardens. Built to enhance the infrastructure for the 1996 Summer Olympics, this park is fringed by a tapestry of buildings significant to the city, like the CNN Center, Philips Arena, and the Georgia World Congress Center. The nearly 500,000 commemorative bricks that make up its main walkway were part of fundraising efforts for the Games. During scorching Atlanta summers, children frolic in the ground-level Olympic Rings, which periodically shoot streams of water through their seven rings. One of the most promising features of the park is the fascinating 'Fountain of Rings', a technology-controlled fountain complete with music, light towers and a splash pad; not only is the fountain is a hive of fun and frolic, but it is also a great architectural feat. The park is also home to several other water features and is a massive locus for live music in the city's downtown. Bearing stunning semblances of natural wonders and an iconic Olympic legacy, Centennial Olympic Park is a site that Atlanta holds close to its heart.

Variety Playhouse

Variety Playhouse features live music seven nights a week, although the musical genre on any given night is anybody's guess. Alternative rock groups, jazz artists and folk singers are regularly showcased, with the club's bookings featuring upstart regional bands and big national names in about equal number. High-profile guests have included piano-based pop groups too. Renowned names like Natasha Bedingfield, Jakob Dylan, Alejandro Escovedo, Carrie Rodriguez and others have graced this stage with their lively performances. A full bar with an enviable selection of local microbrews is also on hand.

The Wren's Nest

This handsome Victorian abode was the longtime home of famed Georgia writer Joel Chandler Harris, who penned some of this country's most popular stories for children as well as adults. Best known for his Uncle Remus tales, Harris wrote many of his landmark pieces right here in Atlanta, and the story of his life and work is on display at the museum. Guided tours and storytelling programs are offered, as well as a nice shop that stocks books and Brer Rabbit memorabilia.
