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 boyfriend and I had such a nice stay at Russell and Heather's. I loved the location. The apartment was roomy, the bed was comfy, and the kitchen area had everything we needed. We weren't ready to go home but hopefully we'll be back!
Please see previous review for Russell & Heather. So good we stayed there twice!
Our stay at Russell and Heather's place was awesome! Their place was exactly as described and pictured. They also have dozens of DVDs and premium digital cable for your viewing pleasure. Cabbagetown is a funky little district that is conveniently located. Parking on the street or adjacent ones is pretty tight, so once we got a spot, we used Uber to get around the ATL. There are lots of hip and artsy folks walking and talking outside the front door for much of the day and night, but they were very friendly and chill. The bedroom is separate, so we could not hear people on the street once we were back there. Russell was great to work with - very responsive and helpful. Our arrival and departure were super-convenient. We would definitely stay here again!
The place is great. This cool spot on a great street. We didn't leave Carroll street the first night as we had pizza for lunch, grabbed a 6 pack from Little's grocery, sat outside the place with our beers, and then had Carroll street cafe for dinner. I would recommend this to everyone.
Russell & Family were fantastic hosts. The flat was in a perfect position in Cabbage Town right next-door to Carroll St Cafe. The flat had everything we needed and, very comfortable & decorated beautifully. We even booked to stay a second night on our return to Atlanta as we loved it so much!
The location was sensational and our stay was easy. Our accommodation was clean and comfortable. Walking distance to good restaurants and bars. Would stay here again!
The space was very nice and clean, and Russell made it easy to find and access. We arrived late at night, and did not feel entirely comfortable in the neighborhood, but upon further reflection, I can not name one single reason for that discomfort. No one so much as gave us a second glance as we came and went.
Overall, a very neat space, and a great price for a location as convenient as this.
