Cocktails in the Garden this Summer

Explore the grandeur of the Atlanta Botanical Garden in the cool of summer evenings during the 10th annual Cocktails in the Garden, held each Thursday night from May through September.

Enjoy specialty cocktails, live musical entertainment and tantalizing cooking demonstrations by the Garden Chef every week from 6 to 10 p.m. Each month during the series, the Garden creates a festive theme by pairing a cocktail with a plant:
  • May: Azaleas and Aviations
  • June: Hydrangeas and Honeybees
  • July: Crape myrtles and Coladas
  • August: Tomatoes and ‘Tinis
  • September: Orchids and Old Fashioneds

In addition, cash bars throughout the Garden offer an array of craft cocktails as well as beer and wine, and dinner may be purchased at MetroFresh in the Garden café. As the only opportunity to stroll the Garden at night, when romantic sunsets and fragrant blossoms cast an alluring spell, Cocktails in the Garden makes for both the perfect date night and a fun outing among friends.

Admission is $18.95, which includes one free-drink coupon. Garden members are admitted for free. For more information, please visit
