Stellar Bodies
3872 Roswell Rd., Buckhead
Owned by two ridiculously fit local trainers, Jeff Toney and Amy Selig, the workouts here are based on the Lagree Method, a pilates-based practice that uses a combination of cardio and strength training to get the posture and lengthening benefits of the former along with the calorie-burn and metabolism boost of the latter. Everything happens on a Megaformer, and since the room can only hold a few of them, the classes have the added benefit of always feeling super intimate and personalized. There's a second studio in Midtown.

dtox
Buckhead Ct. 3850, Roswell Rd., Buckhead
This sweet little juice bar, now three locations strong, first opened back in 2014 with a commitment to sourcing organic produce from local Georgia farmers and wholesalers. In addition to the requisite juices, smoothies, and elixirs, they have a small selection of solid food, including acai bowls, nori rolls, soups, and salads. Hard-core cleansers might want to try their pre-packaged juice cleanses and meal plans, served in their adorable (and signature) glass bottles. You can also find them in Knight Park and Piedmont Heights.
High Museum of Art
280 Peachtree St., Midtown
A visit to the High Museum is as much an architectural pilgrimage as an artistic one—though the museum was originally housed in a mansion that belonged to the High family, a grant from Coca-Cola in the late '70s made possible a major expansion into a brand-new, Richard-Meier-designed building to house the growing collection. More recently, a 2002 addition by Renzo Piano more than doubled the size of the building. There are more than 15,000 works in the permanent collection, spanning American, European, African, and folk art—a selection of the best, plus several significant works of outdoor public art, are always on display and the museum puts on traveling special exhibitions year-round as a supplement.

Cacao Inman Park
299 N Highland Ave., Inman Park
Cacao founder Kristen Hard is a bit of a local hero—she opened her shop after taking a sabbatical from her law studies to travel (including working as a chef on a yacht). Hard is one of the only “bean-to-bar” producers in the region, which means she sources the beans herself, then roasts and shells them in-house. The result is ridiculously complex chocolate that you can really only get in Atlanta. (There are also locations in Buckhead and Virginia Highland).

Souper Jenny
130 West Paces Ferry Rd., Buckhead
The menu here changes every day based on what’s in season (Jenny sources all her produce locally), and you’ll always find plenty of soups—warm in the winter, and chilled in the summer. The entire operation skews healthy, at there's never a time where you won't find both a gluten-free and vegan soup on the menu. They now have four locations (in addition to Buckhead, there are Souper Jenny's in Brookhaven, Decatur, and Blandtown), serving every major neighborhood.
