Today, Cabbagetown is home to beautifully restored bungalows, charming restaurants and local arts shops.

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 Mi Barrio.
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.
Treat it like your Momma would!
Wonderful place. Clean. Character. Wonderful location. Such a charming street. The people in the neighborhood were so sweet. Great communication. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Disclaimer that my experience with Russell and Heather's place is unique and not the norm. They have had a cleaning service for several years and this was the first time Russell said they have messed up. My discomfort was resolved and I appreciate the gesture of the host. However, I will be honest in my review. I would still recommend that you should not think twice about staying here. Everybody makes mistakes at some point.
I am leaving this review hoping that it encourages Russell and Heather to improve their service.
When I arrived at the apartment I was blown away with the architectural style and great location. However, I immediately noticed that the apartment wasn't clean. The kitchen and bathroom trash was overflowing, refrigerator was stocked with half-eaten food and drinks, dishes were misplaced, and bath towels were hanging off of several doors. I have a pretty high tolerance for this and was not extremely bothered, thinking that the cleaning service might come before the end of the day.
I left the apartment for dinner and when I came back, ready for bed, the apartment was in the same state. Only then did I notice that the bed sheets were also ruffled and undone. They were dirty and used - there were loose hairs in the sheets
Clearly, the apartment had not been cleaned at all since the last tenant. I've got to say - this is a huge deal. The only thing a hotel/bnb is responsible for is providing a clean and livable area for the tenant and Russell and Heather failed at this.
Russell, who lives just above the apartment, came downstairs immediately and dropped off fresh sheets and towels. I must admit, it was very strange that he did not offer to take off the old sheets from the bed, or to remove the dirty towels. Instead, I had to myself do the cleaning, make a pile of dirty laundry, and place the new sheets on the bed. This is not really the type of treatment you expect at a hotel or any other bnb.
Russell and I worked out a fair compensation for the situation, but the negative feeling for having laid in dirty sheets and having to clean the place myself did not go away - and negatively affected my experience.
The following evening, when I came back from work, the apartment had been professionally cleaned and in the state that I had expected it be in upon my initial arrival.
The location of the apartment is graet. Cabbage town has an awesome feel. There's a bar next door, restaurants on the block, a great little grocery shop/food spot.
I would recommend going down to Octane and the Little Tart Bakeshop just a 10 minute walk away. Definitely walk around the Oakland Cemetary. If you're into trying some great souther BBQ, go to Daddy D's!
If the apartment had been suitably cleaned when I first got there, the ilsting would easily get 5 stars.
Great place very much as described. Fun street to stay on. Will stay again on next work trip if its free.
Cabbagetown is a great location. The neighborhood is like the Greenwich Village of Atlanta. I was in town for a conference and drove to King Memorial Station MARTA ( which would have been in walking distance, but I was coming back late at night) and there was always a spot. I took a run around Cabbagetown in the mornings and enjoyed the eclectic neighborhood. Heather and Russell were available for questions via text. The only downside to the apartment was the noise at night, but I was aware of this before I booked, so it was not a surprise to have a bar right outside the door. The location and uniqueness of the apartment was worth the extra ambiance and the Carroll Street Cafe serves a great and convenient breakfast right outside the door. The neighborhood was friendly and parking was easy. I would recommend the apartment to anyone ready for a unique Atlanta experience.
It was great place. I would stay there again . The place at everything you could need . Russell was very responsive . location was excellent , there was a grocery store next-door, there was a café on the other side .
We got to Atlanta earlier than expected. Russell did what he could to make the space ready for us as soon as he could. We really appreciated that. He also met us upon arrival. He told us that he was doing what he could to make the space ready. He also welcomed us to Atlanta. He also told us where we could go, what to do, and where to go to eat. We loved the space. The host was awesome. we would do it all over again. Every bit of our experience was great. Thank Russell.
