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!
House was warm and inviting. Information provided ahead of time was perfect and extremely helpful. Really cool, quirky spot in a part of Atlanta I hadn't previously stayed before.
The place itself was great for a weekend trip to Atlanta. Very clean with a good selection of movies. The only downsides were the noise right outside the front door late at night (the AC does drown out the noise in the bedroom though) and the parking situation. If you plan to arrive between 5pm and 10pm, don't expect to find a spot within two blocks. Other than that, the area itself is safe and within walking distance to many shops/bars.
The listing was very accurately described. The location and neighborhood were amazing. Stayed on a Monday so parking wasn't too difficult to find on the street. The decor and layout were really neat.
A+ experience, would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Although our stay was super short, the apartment was cozy and in a great location where we could walk everywhere! There's a convenience store right next door, and the apartment was spacious and clean. Also, we ran into Elizabeth, who had gotten our space ready for us. We tried to contact Heather and Russ about checking in early but never received a response. Overall, a great stay in a great location. The neighborhood seemed like a community (there was always a lot of people hanging out on the street) and everyone we met was helpful and friendly.
What a great place to stay! We were in town for a concert and could have asked for more from Russell or Heather. They were quick to answer any questions we had and were very accommodating. The restaurant right next door is fantastic and filled with friendly people as is the little grocery store...which is also next door!
Every single person we met in our short time there was outgoing and friendly! Oh! And it looks great inside! With a huge shower (a rarity with airbnb places I assure you!).
The place was great, clean, comfortable, yet eclectic. The neighborhood is really quite charming, hip, and funky and centrally located for an easy taxi anywhere. Heather was very responsive and accommodating.
This house is so beautiful! Lots of cool architectural details. The neighborhood is perfect- lots of great places to eat and wander around. Would definitely stay here again.
