Little Five Points

Hands down, Little 5 Points (L5P) is the best spot in Atlanta for people-watching. Moreover, it’s conveniently located in the center of several excellent neighborhoods (Candler Park, Inman Park, Poncey Highlands) and surrounded by parks on all sides but the south.

the-vortex-atlantaOutfitted with murals and skull-shaped restaurants, L5P is unique in every way. Notorious for it’s alternative, quirky crowd and eclectic mix of shops and restaurants, the bright and colorful neighborhood does not disappoint.

L5P tips cultural norms on it’s head, by which I mean, you might stand out if you’re unpierced and tattooless. Regardless, the crowd is relaxed and typically absorbed in the music that the group of the day is playing on the street corner of Euclid and Moreland.

In fact, L5P is rich in it’s arts & music history and places much emphasis on the theater.  The district is home to several theater companies such as 7 stages and the Horizon Theater Company, whose thematic content often reflects social challenges and cultural diversity. For lighter topics, don’t forget to check out Dad’s Garage Theater, which hosts weekly improv shows that are sure to have you falling out of your chair laughing. In addition, L5P is home to the oldest independent feminist bookstore in the country, Charis Books and More, which you can’t help but be drawn to (if for nothing else than because it’s in a purple bungalow!).

 

Focal points of L5P’s include Junkman’s Daughter, which sells the most bizarre and wacky chachkas. In fact, it’s become a pretty big deal in the region and many celebrities -Steven Tyler, Outkast, Avril Lavigne, and more – make a point of Little Five Points Shop Atlantacombing through the superstore while in town.

Across the street from Junkman’s Daughter sits Sevananda (sev-en-awn-da), a co-op natural foods market that sells fresh and affordable organic foods. I can’t get enough of the pumpkin flavored vegan cookies – Outstanding!

If you’re in town during Halloween, don’t miss the annual Little 5 Points Halloween Festival & Parade. It’s one of the most highly rated Halloween events in the country! We’ll see you there!
