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!
If you're interested being in the heart of a beautiful part of Atlanta, then this is a great place for you. Comfortable accommodations and Russell and Heather make it very easy for you to arrive at your convenience. If the weather is dreary there's a great DVD collection for your viewing pleasure and when you get hungry you've got a great market on one side and nice restaurant/bar on the other.
I will certainly stay here again the next time I return to Atlanta.
I had a great stay in Cabbagetown. The apartment was historic, beautiful and well kept and had everything I needed. The neighborhood is very artsy and welcoming and I had a great time hanging out with the neighbors. I had a better time hanging out on Carroll street than anywhere else in Atlanta! I would definitely recommend this apartment to others and hope to return soon.
Great place and neighborhood! Cafe next door had great food and vibe. Was a little strange having bar stools on the sidewalk for anyone to sit and drink late at night, but everyone left before it was too late.
Wonderfull place and location. Heather and Russell were the best hosts. The apartment was clean and fully stocked when we arrived. Would recommend again!
Russell and Heather were so wonderful to accept my family the day of. My girls and I had the best time in their space. We loved the salvaged wood bar and exposed brick walls. The street is alive with people and has a feeling of New Orleans. We enjoyed a playground just up the street, the little grocery store and cabbage pie a lot! We will definitely be back soon!
Please see previous review for Russell & Heather. So good we stayed there twice!
