The sustainable athleisure brand is designed with style and comfort in mind and manufactured in Atlanta. Enjoy multiple purpose pieces featuring practical and breathable materials in an array of prints and colors.
Looking for a better detox? SweatHouz has you covered with six locations around Atlanta. Unlike traditional saunas that heat the air with steam, SweatHouz’s individual private saunas use infrared wavelengths to heat the body directly. As a result, you get a much deeper sweat, expelling seven times more toxins than you would in a traditional sauna.
From Best Self Atlanta 2021 Inspiring Innovator Sophia Marchese and her husband Reid Trapani comes La Semilla, a vegan restaurant with punchy Latin flavors. Set to open this spring in Reynoldstown, the colorful dining space with a covered patio is the first brick- and-mortar foray for the popular Happy Seed pop-up. Expect a plant-based oasis with modern vegan alternatives that embrace local, seasonal ingredients.
