Friends’ Getaway

Need some time to reconnect with friends and get out of town…without getting too far out of town? Brookhaven is the perfect solution for a quick getaway where you can relax and enjoy great shopping, drinks, food, and entertainment when you need a break that won’t break the bank (or your schedule). 

Looking for a mind-body recharge? Start the day with a yoga class at Yogaworks or a walk around the lake at Murphey Candler Park, then put yourself in good hands with a massage at Massage Heights or Relax Center, where staff will tailor a session to your unique needs.

Does your idea of a getaway fall more along the lines of sleeping in than working out? Either way, brunch in Brookhaven is a must on any itinerary. Make your way to Kaleidoscope’s patio for the perfect crab cakes benedict, frittata, or classic biscuits and gravy. Stroll around town and explore unique boutiques like Boogaloos and Vestique, where you’ll find a perfectly curated selection of clothing and accessories (with a personal stylist available), and Marguerite’s on Dresden, where luxurious bath and bedding abound, and trunk show events pop up on the regular. 

Pull up a seat at Pour, a classic neighborhood restaurant and bar, for craft cocktails or a wine tasting and share some of the delectable small plates they’re famous for, like prosciutto and blackberry flatbread, charcuterie board of the day, and ricotta and beet hummus. Walk across the street to Vero for wood-fired pizza, or Valenza for Italian-inspired cuisine made with locally sourced ingredients. Head to Town Brookhaven’s Cinebistro if you’re craving dinner and a movie at the movies: with a full dinner, cocktail menu, and theaters to choose from, you can select your favorite film, your favorite dish, and enjoy them together.

If your getaway plans include a weekend, don’t miss the Brookhaven Farmers Market before you leave. Grab a fresh, cold-pressed juice or the perfect slice of homemade pie, and stock up on goodies from local farmers and artisans to enjoy at home…a jar of local honey, handmade pasta, French macarons, Georgia peaches, and bouquets of beautiful blooms are a great way to take a bit of your getaway back with you…and get you thinking about your next girls’ trip.
