The Super Bowl has become one of the largest annual events for the VIP and a fleet of private jets are expected to touch down in Atlanta ahead of its 53rd incarnation on February 3 2019.

This year’s event will be contested by the seemingly ever-present New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams, who make their first Super Bowl appearance since 2002 and the first since their controversial relocation from St. Louis. For the Patriots, it will be their fourth Super Bowl in five seasons.

Ahead of Big Game Weekend, we bring you the ultimate VIP guide to the city, including where to eat, where to sleep, what parties to be seen at and, of course, how to get the very best seats inside the Mercedes-Benz Stadium for the game itself.

The Finest Restaurants in Atlanta


Enjoying its 40th anniversary in 2019, Bone’s has become part of the culinary furniture in Atlanta. An American-style bistro specializing in both steak and seafood. The menu includes appetizers such as crab and lobster napoleon with chardonnay cream, but you will want to sample one of their renowned steaks from the main menu. Feeling brave? Their 24oz porterhouse cut will leave even the hungriest of diners satisfied.

Restaurant Eugene

A sleek and minimalist interior, the stripped-back atmosphere of Restaurant Eugene has been purposely designed to allow diners to focus solely on the excellent food and wine.

The menu changes frequently, meaning you can look forward to a brand new experience every time you visit. Indeed, Restaurant Eugene has a habit of developing new menus almost every day, subject to seasonal availability.

Arguably the finest Japanese restaurant in Atlanta, Tomo is situated within the same building as the Ritz-Carlton Residences in trendy Buckhead.

Head chef and owner Tomohiro Naito originally came to the USA to study theatre direction, but fell in love with the art of fine dining while working in Japanese, Italian and French restaurants. He went on to work at the famous Nobu in Las Vegas before opening Tomo.
