There are some fantastic locations in cities across this nation that are the perfect place to host a rehearsal dinner. So, how do you choose? Over the next few months, we’re going to be featuring spots in various cities in the US. Each week will be two new cities, so you’ll want to check back in often so you don’t miss out on any of the locations. Even if you’re not having your wedding in that location, you may be visiting one day and all of these spots are great locations to have a nice dinner!

Built in 1928, the Piedmont Room was first the home of the clubhouse for the golf course that resided within Piedmont Park. Now, it hosts some of Atlanta’s most memorable occasions. The original Stone Mountain granite walls and ivy-covered windows remain in the foyer while the main room features a modern feel with soaring windows, dark bamboo hardwoods and 15+’ ceilings. Rental of the venue includes ivory table linens, gold chavari chairs with ivory cushions, votive candles, up-lighting, and complimentary self-parking for event guests. The Piedmont Room is ideal for parties of 50-200+ guests.

St. Cecilia, from Atlanta chef-owner Ford Fry, serves coastal European food—simple and thoughtful dishes inspired by the coastlines of Italy, Spain, and France—in Buckhead’s Pinnacle Building. With an old-world, ingredient-driven approach, Executive Chef Craig Richards displays the Italian trademarks that have always stood the test of time, but with versatile and local Southern ingredients. Richards’ simplicity met with sophistication catapulted the position of St. Cecilia in Atlanta’s dining scene since opening in January 2014. Whether you’re planning a lunch meeting, a dinner date, or a private event, there’s a table for you at St. Cecilia.

For chef Ford Fry, it all started with JCT. Kitchen & Bar, an updated Southern restaurant in Atlanta’s Westside. In a part of the country where seasonal vegetables and deviled eggs are practically religion, Pennsylvania-native Executive Chef Brian Horn marries masterful technique with a simple approach to bold, balanced flavor. Regulars love JCT.’s refined comfort food, like fried chicken, house made bacon mac and cheese, deviled eggs with country ham and our famous Angry Mussels. The city-style upstairs bar and beautiful outdoor courtyard are the perfect backdrops for a relaxing evening or a private event amongst family and friends.
