Things to Do in Atlanta During #FlipMyFunnel 2016

December 1, 2016 Shauna Ward

One of the best things about traveling for a business conference is exploring a new city. On December 8th, #FlipMyFunnel — the biggest account-based marketing conference for B2B marketing, sales, and customer success professionals —is returning to Atlanta, Georgia.

Because Atlanta is our hometown, we consider ourselves experts on the top things to do around town. We know you’ll be busy between all the networking, learning, and happy hour-ing, but you’ve got to make time to explore the city too!

Here are some of our Terminators’ favorite things to do in Atlanta — from delicious restaurants to can’t-miss activities. So dust off your barbecue bib (seriously, it’s necessary) and top up your Breeze Card, because Atlanta has so many incredible things to offer. Enjoy, Funnel Flippers!

Food and Drink

Six Feet Under

“I highly recommend the rooftop bar at Six Feet Under in West Midtown. Great food and one of the best skyline views of Midtown/Downtown you’ll find. You can always walk to Ormsby’s or JCT after for a cocktail too!”
Kipp Ramsey, Employee Success Manager

Antico Pizza

“You have to go to Antico for pizza. It’s one of the best pizza places in the US. It has the freshest ingredients and the best atmosphere.”
Jim Tocci, Account Executive

“I highly recommend stopping by Antico Pizza. It is authentic Italian pizza, and as a little treat, they have a gelato shop across the street, which is the bomb.”
Ryan Vitello, ABM Specialist

Negril Village

“Negril Village is hands-down one of my top three favorite restaurants in Atlanta. The cuisine, customer service, and Caribbean cultural atmosphere is top-notch and refreshing! And the live music is the perfect icing on the cake.”
Brianna Watts, #FlipMyFunnel Coordinator

The Nook

“I recommend The Nook on Piedmont Park. It’s a great restaurant that specializes in tater tots!”
Brandon Cummings, Software Engineer

Lady Bird

“Lady Bird is a great spot. Enjoy dinner and then go for a walk on the Beltline!”
Brad Wilkerson, ABM Specialist

Skylounge at the Glenn

“The best drink spot in the area is the Skylounge on top of Glenn Hotel. It overlooks the city and Centennial Olympic Park.”
Chris Reene, Senior Account Executive

Mary Mac’s Tea Room

“Try Mary Mac’s Tea Room for really authentic home-style Southern food. First-timers get a free serving of Pot Likker, a Southern cuisine speciality! Other incredible dishes include the fried green tomatoes, fried okra, and — for a very traditional Southern entree — order the vegetable plate and you’ll get your choice of any four sides. Sure to provide Insta-worthy food pics!”
Christy Willis, Implementation Specialist

Activities

Georgia Aquarium

“The penguin walk and dolphin show at the Georgia Aquarium are cute and tons of fun!”
Nikki Nixon, Director of #FlipMyFunnel

“You can take MARTA to Downtown Decatur and take a $5 Uber to the Wild Heaven Brewery. They not only have great beer, but it’s a really cool vibe — not uptight and not full of college kids. Great for the young professional who appreciates a good beer!”
Thomas Bass, Customer Success Manager

Laughing Skull Lounge

Laughing Skull has been voted the best comedy club in Atlanta three times. They host open mics, local comedians, and comedy greats from around the world.

Mike Venable, Account Executive

Mike LaTella, ABM Specialist

Dad’s Garage

“Dad’s Garage is always great. You can buy buckets of beer, and the improv shows are cheap and hysterical. ”
JJ Atherton, Customer Success Manager

Tabernacle

“Tabernacle is historic and the best large music venue in Atlanta. You can see and hear from wherever you’re seated.”
Jason Katz, Customer Success Manager

Terminal West

“Terminal West is an AWESOME concert venue. I live there on weekends.”
Thomas Bass, Customer Success Manager

Eddie’s Attic

“Eddie’s Attic is my favorite spot to go watch live music. They have shows every night during #FlipMyFunnel. If anyone comes into town Monday, they have an amazing open mic night then. Tickets are around $15 to $25. Fun Fact: this is the place where John Mayer got his start.”
JJ Atherton, Customer Success Manager

The Botanical Gardens

“I love the Botanical Gardens. I’m a member there and go all of the time. You can see all the holiday stuff now, too!”
Jessica Hults, Protector of Productivity

World of Coke

Atlanta is the birthplace of Coca-Cola. You can learn all about the brand’s history — and taste test different Coke products from around the world — at the World of Coke museum.

Atlanta Culture & Sightseeing

“Little Five Points is the best place to go to see the hipster side of Atlanta. The area stretches a couple of blocks and has lots of eclectic shops and great restaurants. I’d recommend the Vortex (featured on Man vs. Food) for one of the best burgers in Atlanta, and then walk over to Porter Beer Bar for an extensive selection of beers and a great, cozy setting.”
Todd Williams, Customer Success Manager

Atlantic Station

“Atlantic Station is like its own city within a city. There’s shopping, food, movies, and my favorite during the holiday season: ice skating! I’d definitely recommend taking a stroll through for a nice evening out.”
Brianna Watts, #FlipMyFunnel Coordinator

Krog Street Market

“Krog Street is a short Uber ride away from downtown and is a great place to see the ‘real’ Atlanta. Eat from one of the many vendors, grab a craft beer, or try the amazing ice cream. Then you can walk it off on the Beltline, Atlanta’s new greenway. ”
– Thomas Shields, Director of Product Marketing

“Krog Street Market is a great place to get a feel for true Atlanta. With a similar vibe to Chelsea Market in NYC, it provides great food, drinks, and shopping experiences from local Atlanta vendors. Fred’s Meat & Breads at Krog is a great choices for food.”
Todd Williams, Customer Success Manager

“One of my favorite spots in the city is Krog Street Market. It’s a short drive from the [Marriott] hotel and offers several restaurant options. (Superica is an absolute favorite.) There is also Hop City to grab a beer or The Merchant to shop for a cool Atlanta souvenir.”
Megan Sheehan, Digital Marketing Manager

“I love going to the gym, but being able to have a scenic workout like Stone Mountain in my backyard is definitely a treat. It’s the perfect outdoor activity for visitors who want to see Atlanta from a different perspective than just eating and shopping.”
Brianna Watts, #FlipMyFunnel Coordinator

Center for Civil and Human Rights

Atlanta was the birthplace of Martin Luther King, Jr. and one of the epicenters of the Civil Rights Movement in the 50s and 60s. This educational museum bridges the gap between the American Civil Rights Movement and human rights struggles around the world. Plus, it’s right down the road from the World of Coke and the Georgia Aquarium.
