With its Southern charm, historical significance, and unique background, The Fox Theatre Historic District is comprised of four buildings that have been listed in the National Register of Historic Places. These architectural gems nestled in the heart of Midtown, hold a significant importance to the city of Atlanta. As the city was coming into its own in the beginning of the 20th century, the Historic District has been the backdrop of movie premieres, politician visits, and literary events.
The Georgian Terrace, a hotel inaugurated in 1911, comprises a fourth of the District. The hotel was created in a Beaux-Arts style and is decorated by ornate crystal chandeliers and white marble. The hotel has been place for numerous historical events (such as the premiere of Gone with the Wind) and has housed prominent guests such as Clark Gable, Calvin Coolidge, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Walt Disney.
In 2009 the Livingston restaurant opened at The Georgian Terrace in a site that had once been the previous home of former Mayor Livingston Mims. An innovative restaurant that combines fine dining with Southern charm, the Livingston offers unique cocktails, elaborate multi-course meals, and a delightful atmosphere.
For Valentine’s Day, the Livingston offered a prix-fix menu that included varied options. Masterfully cooked and beautifully presented, the Livingston was a great choice for Valentine’s Day dinner and a restaurant that I recommend checking out if you are ever in Atlanta.
