A progressive dinner is an excellent way to get a taste of many of Savannah’s most popular restaurants and cocktail lounges in just one evening! Start off with a cocktail at one place, grab an appetizer at another, have dinner somewhere else, and finish off with a dessert at a new spot. There are so many places to try, but this sample list will give you a few ideas for your progressive dinner night out.

Artillery has a wide selection of elegant handcrafted cocktails.

Cocktails

To begin the evening, grab a handcrafted cocktail at Artillery. This stunning Bull Street lounge is inside a historic building – it was formerly a 19th-century artillery warehouse.

Edgar’s Proof and Provision is also a great choice. Located inside The DeSoto Hotel, this sleek lounge is all about bourbons from around the world. This cozy lounge offers relaxing front porch views to take in the sultry Savannah evenings.

Rhett has excellent starters, like their locally-sourced charcuterie board.

Hors d’oeuvres

The next stop on the progressive dinner is the appetizer! Head over to Rhett, a modern Southern restaurant inside The Alida Hotel. Rhett uses local ingredients to create savory starters like the charcuterie platter and housemade ricotta.

If you’re looking for something a little lighter, grab hors d’oeuvres at The Fat Radish, one of Savannah’s newest restaurants. They have plenty of great vegetable starters on the menu, like grilled shishito peppers, green peanut hummus and squash carpaccio.

It's easy to see why Husk is such a popular restaurant for Southern cuisine.

Main course

After you’ve opened your palate with hors d’oeuvres, it’s time for the main course. 45 Bistro, located inside the historic Marshall House, is a fine-dining restaurant that offers white tablecloth ambience. Here, you can dine on elegant classics like pan-seared halibut and braised short ribs.
 
If you’re craving bold Southern flavors, visit Husk, a lively restaurant inside a landmark mansion. Husk will wow you with their incredible Southern menu, which changes seasonally to offer the freshest items available.

There's no shame in ordering more than one dessert at Better Than Sex – A Dessert Restaurant.

Dessert

A progressive dinner wouldn’t be complete without dessert! Try out Better Than Sex – A Dessert Restaurant, located on Savannah’s iconic Broughton Street. This dessert spot has a sensual theme on full display, and their dessert cocktails and sweets have playful names to match!
