3 reasons little five points is atlanta's coolest neighborhood

ah, little five points. How weird art thee. offbeat, artsy and always entertaining. that's why you are so loved. it's a one-of-a-kind neighborhood you must experience in atlanta, and here are three reasons to convince you why.

1. the music

street performances

variety playhouse isn't the only venue in l5p where you'll find live music. it's unusual NOT to find musicians of all kinds on street corners and out on the square, entertaining passersby and trying to earn a few tips (either out of necessity or love of the craft). keep a few $1 bills handy and enjoy the music on the street.

2. the people

a melting pot of cultures

Euclid avenue is always filled with people. it's lively. it's diverse. people hanging out, people eating & drinking. artists, tourists, residents...it's a place where people of all walks of life converge together. it's the neighborhood's greatest strength, by far.

3. the color

murals and street art 

little five is a visual feast. from the colorful buildings to the murals and street art that adorn their facades, this is not a boring neighborhood. you'll find works by atl favorites such as Chris veal and outsiders like nyc's jerkface. but it's not only the walls that scream color; it's in the clothing and art and wares that are sold on or in the stores that line the street. 

eat, drink & do: local brews at wrecking bar brewpub or the porter, or go full on dive bar at euclid avenue yacht club; choose your flavor among restaurants that span the globe (Indian, ethiopian, mexican, mediterranean); catch local acts saturday and sunday evenings when little five arts alive takes over findley and davis plazas.
