East Atlanta Village
The Washington Post calls East Atlanta Village the “Best Kept Secret in Atlanta.”
Boasted as the third hottest neighborhood in the nation, East Atlanta Village is one of the hippest and culturally diverse communities in Atlanta’s DeKalb. By day, EAV is quiet neighborhood with unique shopping, delicious restaurants, and vibrant street art. By night, its nightlife scene is full of local and well-known bands, eclectic bars and late night dishes.
Every community in DeKalb has its own unique vibe and personality. East Atlanta Village’s alternative personality has not changed since the early 90s. Whether you are watching one of your favorite bands at 529 or The Earl (or just enjoying one of their delicious burgers), grabbing a beer while watching your favorite soccer team at Elder Tree Pub, or just want to hang out at “a sunny place for shady people” at Graveyard Tavern, you are definitely in for an exciting night in EAV.
If the nightlife isn’t your scene, East Atlanta Village has dozens of independent shops and local businesses full of vintage clothing, furniture, and local art. After shopping, stop in at Joe’s East Atlanta Coffee Shop for a delicious cup of coffee, or grab brunch at Argosy.
East Atlanta Village has something for everyone. Each restaurant, bar and shop has it’s own distinct feel and crowd. The streets are lined with colorful and vibrant street art and sculptures that sets EAV apart from the rest of DeKalb and the entire Metro Atlanta.
At the end of the summer, the East Atlanta Strut brings everyone from EAV and the surrounding communities for a fun-filled day featuring a classic car show, live local music, artist markets, RunFest and the famous Strut Parade! The East Atlanta Strut isn’t your normal festival and captures the heart of East Atlanta Village.
Also happening in EAV is the East Atlanta Village Farmers Market. Come out every Thursday from 4pm – 8pm for fresh produce from local farmers. Their mission is “to develop and strengthen farmers markets for long term sustainability and meaningful community impact, with a focus on building a stronger local food system.”
