We’re hosting an “Atlanta Reception” for our friends and coworkers we aren’t able to invite to the big day in Philly (don’t worry—this is a no gifts thing). We’re looking for a restaurant or club that will cater, handle the bar and has a good atmosphere, but where we can be in our own section/room. We’re thinking of a Friday or (preferably) a Saturday in October.
Any thoughts on some good locations? Maybe places where you’re having your rehearsal dinners?

Have you checked South City Kitchen or Empire State South? Both lovely restaurants and Empire State South has a private room.

@phillybride61513: Do you have an area in particular that want to have it?

Thanks, I’ve been to both, and those could be good options.
@OtterHalf We’re thinking midtown/East Atlanta…somewhere central for everyone.

Buckhead Bottle Bar and Bistro
Atlanta Fish Market
South City Kitchen
JCT Kitchen and Bar (southern Food)
I have been to small receptions at all these locations and they were all perfect for the occasions.

@phillybride61513: June 15th is my wedding day in Atlanta 🙂
All of the above are great options. We’re having a welcome party at Einstein’s in Midtown. We have the back room reserved to ourselves – it looks really awesome – but there are other areas you can reserve like the front or back patio and anther room with tables. It was incredibly affordable. We have 5 heavy passed apps and a full bar for 3 hours. It was great for us because we didn’t want to do a sit down dinner (50 people) so it’s a more relaxed, cocktail reception atmosphere.

2 Months! So for Einsteins…what was the cost (feel free to PM me) for 50 people, open bar and 5 apps? That’s like exactly what we need/want!

If you’re still looking, check out Wahoo Grill in Decatur. I’m actually having my wedding there, but they do all kinds of events. Depending on how many people you’ll have, their tent and/or outdoor patio are really nice.

Sun in My Belly near Decatur is a great space with an awesome look. They do catering for weddings and have a few different rooms that could probably be arranged for your needs. It’s one of my fave places in ATL:
