Best Hangover Cure DripFusion
When it comes to beating your hangover, skip the Gatorade, coffee and even water. Instead, opt for DripFusion, surgeon Mark Beaty’s approach to holistic health that utilizes water and minerals to replenish you from the inside out. Midtown

Best Bar Overall Big Sky Buckhead
Looking for the hottest see-and-be-seen spot for a night on the town? Big Sky Buckhead is the obvious choice. With two stories—which means two patios and, of course, two bars—you have plenty of room to dance it out with your squad with delicious drinks in hand. Feel free to hit up Big Sky a little earlier in the evening to experience next-level bar snacks from chef Hector Santiago. Fried mac and cheese bites, anyone? @bigskybuckhead

Best Local Band Haley & Alexis
Singer/songwriters (and native Atlantans) Haley and Alexis currently work with premier vocal coach Mama Jan Smith and are considered rising stars on the Atlanta music scene, having just released a trio of Southern rock-with-a-touch-of-country songs on Spotify. Listen to “Heartbeat” and we guarantee you’ll fall in love with these talented twins. @haleyandalexismusic

Best Happy Hour Eclipse di Luna
This Spanish-centric watering hole has a happy hour worth smiling about, with tapas and well drinks at half the cost between 4 and 6pm every Monday through Thursday. So grab your crew and get settled in the sun on Eclipse’s patio for a deliciously good time. Multiple locations, @eclipsediluna
