FABTECH After Dark: Your Guide to Atlanta

Mary Mac’s Tea Room (10-minute drive from Georgia World Congress Center)
An iconic establishment serving up southern comfort food since 1945.

Ponce City Market (15-minute drive)
The converted historic Sears building hosts plenty of small shops and an eclectic food hall with top-notch options. Go for a walk afterward along the BeltLine and enjoy the cool Atlanta fall!

Elliott Street Deli & Pub (10-minute walk)
Phenomenal sandwiches. Hole-in-the-wall dive demeanor. Live music. Drinks and eccentricity. What more could you ask for?

Red Phone Booth - Downtown Atlanta (15-minute walk)
Craft cocktails, small plates and cigars offered in a chic speakeasy entered through a phone booth.

And of course, there’s no shortage of museums and attractions in downtown Atlanta! The Georgia Aquarium is open until 8 p.m. most days, Centennial Park (home of the ‘96 Olympics) is open until 7 p.m., and if you decide to end your day early, the National Center for Civil and Human Rights is open from 12–5 p.m. on weekdays.

Don’t forget: You can meet Amper at FABTECH!

Amper works with companies in the metal forming, fabricating and welding industries to help them improve OEE and margins. (Check out this case study with Leer Inc. to see how!)
