The Swan Coach House is located on the grounds of the Atlanta History Center. The Swan House used to be the carriage house of the Edward Inman Estates. It was renovated into the lavish restaurant, gift shop and art gallery that it is today by the industrious ladies of Atlanta’s Forward Arts Foundation in 1967. (Psst… did you know The Hunger Games: Catching Fire filmed here?!)
The Swan Coach House offers lunch, banquets and special events. The menu is fantastic with the secret recipe chicken salad, cheese straws and frozen fruit salad being a staple every time I go. For dessert they have a traditional meringue swan, filled with chocolate mouse that is my favorite for sure. There are many other menu items to please different palates.
I have been going to the beautiful Swan Coach House on a yearly basis since I was a young teen, whether it was with my grandmother, my mother, daughter or friends. It is such a big tradition that one of my best friends even had my 40th birthday luncheon for me here.
There is so much history in this grand place that you can feel it as you eat in the restaurant, walk the grounds, wander through the gift shop and gander through the art gallery. The main restaurant area is the original dining room of Edward Inman, and feels very rich. The grounds are very well groomed and articulate, a site to see. The Swan Coach House should definitely be on your list of things to do. Follow them on Facebook for the latest Scoop!
