Villa Christina is located in Atlanta, just off of I-285 and right inside the perimeter, but once you enter its private road you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to one of the islands of the Mediterranean. Known for its architecture, warm ambience and first class service, Villa Christina is the perfect place to get out of the city — while still being in the city.
Weekdays bring with it affordable happy hour drink specials — like magnificent $5 house martinis on Mondays and half price bottles of select wines on Thirsty Thursdays — as well as complimentary appetizers like bruschetta, marinated mozzarella, and green olive tapenade. Sunday brunch is brand new to Villa Christina, and for $35 you can enjoy more than 125 buffet items, a carving station, a cooked-to-order omelet station and, of course, refreshing mimosas.
To make a weekend of it, stay at the newly opened Hyatt Regency Atlanta Perimeter at Villa Christina. With a backdrop of lush plants and brightly colored flowers, and a menu that consists of the freshest seafood, handmade pastas, artisanal cocktails, and decadent desserts, taking a trip off the beaten path is well worth the drive.
