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!

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Russell and Heather's apartment in Cabbagetown. The setting is perfect, with restaurants and beautiful old buildings and houses lining the street. Next door is a fantastic store that sells everything from wine to breakfast sandwiches on homemade biscuits. The apartment was well-furnished with lots of eclectic touches and natural materials, like exposed brick and a kitchen counter that appears to be made from old doors. The furniture is comfortable for the most part; the mattress in the bedroom could use an upgrade. We didn't meet the hosts, but they responded quickly and congenially to emails. Check-in was a breeze.
The apartment suited us very well for the one night we were there. It was conveniently located near many restaurants. We also found it very easy to find and access with the directions supplied.
Great place in a cool little area of Atlanta. Very eclectic/cool decor with everything I needed for the night. Right on the street next to a couple bars/ restaurants. Being right on the street and having chairs outside where people sit to smoke/talk, there is definitely some street/conversation noise. Could hear people's conversations very clearly when sitting on the couch which kind reminded me that I was in the middle of it all and wasn't at all a problem for me, but if noise bugs you it may be an issue. Super quiet in the bedroom. Anyhow, loved my stay and am very appreciative to have had the chance to stay there. I'd recommend it.
We had a great time in Cabbagetown! This place has a great location to get to other places and the Little Store next door is super cool. The apartment is warm with the heaters and everything was clean. It has a lot of charm with exposed brick walls and chipped paint wood ceilings. Also the kitchen area looks like an old bar. Heather was very helpful and made things pretty easy. The negatives would be that the door to the apartment goes right onto the sidewalk and at night there were a couple of characters outside. Also the road is technically two-way but with the only parking being on the road there is really only room for one car to go down each way. It was a little difficult in that aspect but we just parked and walked or used Über to go anywhere. The Marta station is about a 20 min walk and the area is a little sketchy. All in all it worked for us but area didn't make us feel safe.
Had a great stay at this place! It was a quick in-and-out stay for us as we were only in town for a concert, but it definitely worked for what we needed. The trip was in mid January and the place was pretty chilly even with the 2 portable space heaters but it was no big deal. It's in a great central location and I do recommend Agave just at the end of the street for dinner. A side note...we went to a place called the Highland Bakery for breakfast (about 5 minutes away) and were blown away! Definitely worth looking into. We always love our trips to Atlanta and will keep this place in mind for the future.
This was a fine spot for my needs on this particular trip.
The location was convenient for my business trip.
It also had necessities within walking distance.
