East Atlanta is a diverse, friendly neighborhood located just east of Downtown and around the corner from the historic Kirkwood community.
Known as EAV to locals, the neighborhood is highlighted by an eclectic mix of shops, services and restaurants, as well as ample greenspace and parks. The lively East Atlanta Village boasts several live music and entertainment venues.
The East Atlanta and Kirkwood neighborhoods are rich in history with charming Craftsman-style bungalows, beautiful Victorian homes and fitting new construction. Kirkwood residential developments date back to the late 1800s.
From farmer’s markets to live music festivals …
Foodies and farmers flock to the East Atlanta Village Farmers Market, a weekly Thursday happening April through December, featuring locally grown vegetables and fruits; organic meats, dairy and eggs, artisan produced breads, and other delicacies. The farmers market also highlights local artists and community groups.
Annual festivals such as The East Atlanta Strut – a street fair that benefits local charities – the East Atlanta Beer Festival and the Battle of Atlanta Festival provide great music, family fun and tasty treats.
Many of metro Atlanta’s most beloved eateries are located in EAV and Kirkwood.
A few words could sum up East Atlanta Village (EAV) well: locally-owned shops, farmers market, music, and bars! Along Flat Shoals and Glenwood avenues, you’ll find a melting pot of restaurants, pubs, bookshops, artisan cupcake bakeries, bike shops, clothing stores and more.
If you’re looking for information about Atlanta’s music scene, East Atlanta Village is a great place to put your ear to the ground. Pubs like The Earl and The Basement at the Graveyard attract performances from local, regional, and national bands, and no matter what style of music you’re looking for, someone around the village can recommend good spots to find it.
Bike, walk, run, or dine…
The Beltline has it all
Just about 3 miles away, the Atlanta Beltline has become a hallmark of ATL’s urban redevelopment and prospers as a vital connection to our favorite neighborhoods.
There’s no shortage of restaurants on the BeltLine. Most are placed around the Eastside Trail, but more are arriving on the western connections. Krog Street and Ponce City markets alone have countless dining options.
From massive murals and ironworks to tiny doors and interactive dioramas, the Atlanta BeltLine is the place to find a plethora of amazing art — but you have to know where to find it. Murals change out every year, so when you see something that stirs your emotions, be sure to take a pic because it may not be around for long.
