Lenox Square Mall
I work at Lenox Mall as a valet. I never really ventured much into Buckhead besides the bars and picked up a job at the behest of a friend. After a while I met all sorts of people.
Lenox is more interesting than your average mall just by the people who go there and the buildings that surround it. It's like it's own little mini-city. The name Buckhead comes from a man called Henry Irby. He owned the land and put a tavern and general store on what would become today's Buckhead. He mounted a giant buck's head in his tavern and soon enough, people started to cling onto the name.
Lenox is also known for plenty of events it hosts - the Peachtree Road Race, exotic car shows, and the celebrations for 4th of July, Christmas, and New Year's.
I mainly work outside, so for this project I wanted to delve deeper and get other angles.
Some days the mall can be extraordinarily busy, or fairly calm. I would recommend going through google for their hours to know what to expect. There's plenty of offerings in the mall to choose from, but there's also more in the surrounding area. Around Lenox has even more if the mall doesn't have what you need.
Simon Property Group owns both Lenox and Phipps Plaza, a sister mall to Lenox right across the street. A lot of people will valet at Lenox thinking it's got the store they need when it is at Phipps. Be sure to always check and here's a list of Phipps stores!
Driving through Buckhead is a whole other story. It's basically what you would expect out of the city and more. Plenty of shops, one after another for food, clothes, services, accessories, etc. A lot of people take pride in living or working in Buckhead just for the affluent attitude and surroundings it's known for.
