Neighborhood Discovery: WestSide Midtown

Movin’ on up… to the WestSide.

Centered around Howell Mill Road between 10th and 17th street, the WestSide is becoming one of the next best kitschy-cool neighborhoods in Atlanta, which rivals (or happily reminds you of) other well-known industrial haunts a la the Meatpacking District in NYC or Soho in London. A great mix of restaurants, shops and bars make this neighborhood a top contender for where the Atlanta elite are now starting to prefer to “see and be seen” and can only mean that the addition of a Starbucks location is inevitable. From the gorgeous Anthropologie and Star Provisions family to the coveted Sid & Ann Mashburn stores, there is something for everyone in this understated part of town. Read on for an inside scoop on some of the best food spots in the area for whatever mood you’re in.

And with the varied appetizers and small plates around town, it may very well be true. One can easily make an entire meal by sampling from the small plates on a menu. Read on for some of my personal favorites.


Atlanta Spots to Let it Linger


Do you have to, do you have to let it linger? Why, yes.

While bar-hopping all over town is a noble pursuit with many rewards, it can be just as amusing to nestle into one spot for the night and watch how it morphs over the course of an evening. Efficient partygoers know how to fulfill all their debaucherous needs in one place. Settle in for dinner first, then head over to the party side of the joint and get your groove on. Read on for some one-stop spots for all your entertainment needs.
