Atlanta’s East Side
Atlanta’s Eastside begins just one mile from Centennial Olympic Park and is where tattooed locals, funky street art and community food halls come together.
Atlanta’s Eastside offers a unique blend of neighborhoods. From upscale shopping and dining in Virginia-Highland to the gritty energy of East Atlanta Village and the surging street life that defines Little Five Points. It is the exuberance of the Beltline and the Old Fourth Ward and the sense of community in always festive Inman Park.
Located less than a mile north of Centennial Olympic Park, Midtown Atlanta is bustling with art and energy. Known as Atlanta’s “Heart of the Arts,” Midtown’s Art’s District is home to the Fox Theatre, High Museum of Art, MODA, Center for Puppetry Arts, SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film, the Ferst Center for the Arts on Georgia Tech’s campus and more.
From the constant energy of Piedmont Park where you can cycle, walk or simply relax to Peachtree Street, a walkable stretch of the city where people enjoy the art of living, Midtown Atlanta is always on the move. And when the sun goes down, Midtown turns up the volume with nightclubs and lounges. From Opera Nightclub to Sutra Lounge, dancing doesn’t stop until the sun comes up.
Atlanta’s Westside starts less than a mile from Centennial Olympic Park. From Upper Westside to Southwest Atlanta, it’s where the history and heritage meets design district shopping and dining in chic, industrial spaces.
