The Neighborhood

Cabbagetown in Atlanta, GA is a historic neighborhood that traces its roots to the late 19th century. Originally a mill town built to provide housing for Fulton Bag and Cotton Mill workers. Cabbagetown in Atlanta is located within a six-block, just east of downtown Atlanta, and the Historic Oakland Cemetery is located a few blocks west of Cabbagetown. Today, Cabbagetown is home to beautifully restored bungalows, charming restaurants and local arts shops.

Restaurants in walking distance include Carroll Street Cafe, Agave, Little's Food Store, Mi Barrio, Village Pizza, 97 Estoria, Stone Soup Kitchen, Ria's Bluebird Cafe, Standard Food & Spirits, Republic Social House, Doc Chey's Grant Park, Six Feet Under, Just Loaf'n, Octane Coffee, Daddy D'z, and Tin Lizzy's Cantina.

Cabbagetown is a historic neighborhood located about a mile east of downtown Atlanta. It's located very close to what was the Fulton Cotton and Bag Mill. According to Atlanta Historian Cliff Kuhn, the name may be derived from an incident that happened during the depression when a truck hauling cabbage overturned. For the rest of the week the area smelled like boiled cabbage.

The easiest route is to get on bus 21 at the Georgia State or King Memorial Station on the blue/green rail line, which goes down Memorial Drive. Exit at Boulevard for the restaurants on Carroll Street, or at Powell Street for more direct access to the neighborhood park. Another known attraction is the Krog Tunnel, which is at the northern edge of the neighborhood, and usually features event advertisements and artist graffiti.

Taking your bike on MARTA is another great option for getting to Cabbagetown. If you exit at the Inman Park Station you’ll have direct access to a bike path on Edgewood Avenue. Take Edgewood to Krog Street and turn left. The ride is only about 10 minutes to the park (see bike route map).

For those who wish to walk, the King Memorial Station is the closest to the neighborhood. It is about a 15 minute walk to the edge of the neighborhood, but a walk you’ll likely want to do in daylight. Turn left/south onto Grant Street after exiting the station and going down the stairs. Turn left again on Memorial Drive and walk past the cemetery to reach the neighborhood. You’ll also walk by other restaurants en route, including Young Augustine’s, The Republic, Tin Lizzy’s, Six Feet Under, Ria’s Bluebird and Mibarrio.

Other Things to Note

The best people watching in town. Feel like getting a tattoo? It's here! Feel like a late night beer? It's here. Feel like a great bottle of wine from Little's market? Literally next door! Feel like a stroll in the park? Choose from a few! It is never boring in Cabbagetown.

  • Loved the neighborhood!! Close to everything downtown but with a small town feel.

  • This stay was an awesome experience. Great location.

  • Heather was sweet and accommodating. I was a bit nervous staying by myself and she was generous enough to let my boyfriend stay with me. The place is just as it looks. Don't let the neighborhood scare you. It is a super hip and diverse area and has so many unique experiences to offer. The Cafe is right next door and has a locally grown vibe, great for early riser breakfast/coffee! The Little Grocery story is next door as well and is great to grab drinks or unique products to snack on. Lots of cool graffiti paint the streets around here. Martin Luther King walk is worth a visit. Octane is also a great visit for coffee connoisseurs.

  • Overall very nice place with history and character! Great neighborhood and hosts were responsive. We had a little mix up about where and when to pick up key but it all worked out. I'd stay here again and recommend it to others looking for more community feel than big hotel chain.

  • Awesome Spot. Convenient location and very comfortable. Will definitely be back.

  • Heather was great! She was very friendly and helpful. This apartment was a very easy and convenient stay--it's on a great block with bars, restaurants and shops. And, for the other neighborhoods we wanted to visit, this was a very central location. Check in and check out was simple, we had no problems at all. Thanks for having us!

  • Would love to come back! This place made our stay in Atlanta great. I doubt that we would have liked the city as much as we did, if we hadn't stayed here.
    Sometimes an rented bed is just a place you sleep. With Heather and Russell's place it made our stay. As hosts they were like friends you just hadn't seen in a while, making me and my husband feel completely at home on Carroll Street. Always fast to respond to any questions, eager to help and easy to be around. At the end of our 2 weeks stay, we really didn't want to leave! Next time I'm back in Atlanta, I'll call on Heather and Russell to hear if their place is free.
    Some added details about the place:
    - the street. Carroll Street is a lovely little patch of shops and places to eat and drink. The atmosphere is relaxed and the people living, working and going out here are super friendly, making it a nice place to come home to.
    - parking and transportation. It was always easy to find parking, and with the big highways near by, it was easy to go anywhere in the greater Atlanta area.
    - the place itself. You'll have a big bathroom and bedroom, and a nice living and kitchen area all to yourself. The high bar by the kitchen area is perfect for laptops, if you're in town for work like I was. Because of the stone floor, it stays nice and cool even after a hot day which is such a nice bonus feature.

  • Awesome neighborhood, nice place!

  • Great 2-room apartment situated between a super cafe/bar on one side and a well-stocked market on the other. I could even access the apartment's WiFi (with password) from the cafe next door :) The apartment was very clean and the cool architectural interest of the building is preserved inside with high ceilings, exposed brick, and wooden beams. Next time my husband and I visit Atlanta, would love to stay here again!

  • The neighborhood is the best part, really safe and definitely Berlin style.
    The house was fine, nicely decorated and furnished.
    I didn't got the opportunity to met KC or Russel, it was like being in a small flat on my own.

    the only regret is that the wifi connexion was rather poor at the time I was there.
