Cocktails in the Garden ~ Drink in the Beauty of Atlanta’s Urban Oasis!


Explore the grandeur of the city’s urban oasis – the Atlanta Botanical Garden – in the cool of summer evenings during the 10th annual Cocktails in the Garden Thursday nights May through September.

Enjoy specialty cocktails, live music from the city’s hottest deejays, and tantalizing cooking demonstrations by the Garden Chef every week from 6 to 10 p.m. Each month during the series, the Garden creates a fun theme by pairing a cocktail with a plant:

  • May: Azaleas and Aviations
  • June: Hydrangeas and Honeybees
  • July: Crape myrtles and Coladas
  • August: Tomatoes and ‘Tinis
  • September: Orchids and Old Fashions

In addition, cash bars throughout the Garden offer an array of other cocktails as well as beer and wine, and dinner may be purchased at the MetroFresh in the Garden café. As the only opportunity to stroll the Garden at night — when romantic sunsets and fragrant blossoms cast an alluring spell – Cocktails in the Garden makes for both the perfect date night and a fun outing among friends.

Admission is $18.95, which includes one free-drink coupon; Garden members are admitted for free. For information, visit

The mission of the Atlanta Botanical Garden is to develop and maintain plant collections for display, education, research, conservation and enjoyment. The Garden is located at 1345 Piedmont Ave. NE, and open from 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday and until 10 p.m. on Thursdays.
