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 Mibarrio.

Best place to stay in town, hands down. Troy's home and neighborhood will be a pleasant surprise if you had any presumptions about Atlanta, resembling something closer to New Orleans -- humidity included. All misguided humor aside, Troy is an excellent host that will make sure you have a great experience at his home, in the neighborhood, and in Atlanta. Starting from your arrival with a generous welcome packet that includes all the vital information, to ensuring you don't miss a train, Troy makes sure his guests have a great experience. The neighborhood has profound character with a few cafes, bars, pizza parlors, or convenience stores just across the street whether you're a morning person looking to sit out and read or prefer late evenings in a neighborhood bar. Troy's home is also within a 5-10 minute walk to the MARTA rail station which can get you to any popular destinations in town and is a 5 minute walk to the King Memorial Neighborhood District. Most importantly, Troy's place has the most comfortable bed in Atlanta and is a very restful home that will help you recover from long sightseeing walks or late-evening drinking.
This is a little pocket of paradise. You might know Cabbagetown as the delightful neighborhood that has some of the best bars, cafes, parks and restaurants all in walking distance. However, Troy's house is a gorgeous resort in the center of it. Troy is a designer, and it shows in his house. It is relaxing and quiet, with a wonderful living room and amazing kitchen. Best of all is Troy who was a fantastic host. He made us feel at home, showed us around the town and made us feel welcomed at every turn. My wife and I loved our time at Troy's house and are looking forward to our next opportunity to return.
