Where was Holidate filmed? The Mall and Filming Locations

Posted by

This romantic comedy starring Emma Roberts and Luke Bracey is set in Chicago. According to a map on the film, the comic duo lives in the Logan Square neighborhood and the suburb of Evanston respectively.

However, Holidate was entirely filmed in and around Atlanta.

Sloane and Jackson

Sloane and Jackson are both single and don't like being alone on holidays; When they accidentally found each other, the two strangers decide to become their second half only for all the festive occasions in the next year.

Emma Roberts is known for her roles in American Horror Story and Unfabulous, and Luke Bracey was featured in Point Break and Hacksaw Ridge.

Here is our spoiler-free Holidate filming locations report:

Holidate Mall
The fictional Lakeview Mall is the background for several key scenes in the movie.

The filmmakers took over a large section of the Gwinnett Place Mall in Duluth for filming.

This is the same shopping center used in Stranger Things, the Starcourt Mall.

Before the location scouts of the popular Netflix series found it, this wing of the complex was half abandoned, with many storefronts vacant.

Holidate Club
Sloane and Jackson's great night out was filmed in the former Opera Atlanta dance club, now called Domaine.

Located at 1150 Crescent Avenue in Midtown Atlanta, this is the kind of gorgeous nightclub that you expect to see in a Hollywood movie.

The venue ranked as one of the top nightclubs in the country. This domed historical building was once an actual opera house.

Throughout decades, it has hosted high-profile DJs and musicians including Prince, Kanye West, or David Guetta, just to name a few.

Irish Pub Drehorte
During Saint Patrick's Day, the cheerful couple is celebrating in the Rí Rá Irish Pub at 1080 Peachtree Street, also located in Midtown Atlanta.

After ten years, this beautiful bar and restaurant is now permanently closed. So why not use the site to film your next movie?
