The five most hipster neighborhoods in Atlanta—according to a hipster insider

By Sammy Approved


This area is located in the heart of the city off of Edgewood Avenue. Here, you'll find local hipsters roaming the streets from sun up to sun down. You might find your favorite juice bar or local kale eatery for lunch. Or you might be interested in the nightlife featuring a strip of bars with a variety of cool tunes from EDM to hip-hop.

Little Five Points

The history of the hipster scene in Atlanta lives here. It's the ultimate area for shopping, food and vibes in the city. Little Five points is smack dab in the middle of Midtown Atlanta featuring a pretty amazing and well-known shoe store, Wish. You can thrift your entire wardrobe at Rag-O-Rama in the middle of this trendy area. My favorite place in the neighborhood Corner Tavern, a little bar that makes a fabulous Jameson slushy.


Piedmont is pretty close to Five Points, and it's where seemingly all of the hipsters in Atlanta reside. The area offers a drive-in theater to fulfill the nostalgic moviegoer’s dreams, a huge park that hosts the largest festivals and events and a shopping area where you can visit the local market to pick up Sunday’s groceries with a list full of vegan eats.


If you aren’t familiar with Cabbagetown, the name alone should give you a good sense of the neighborhood. It's home to the famous Krog Street Tunnel, which features some gorgeous street art. The area is located in East Atlanta and registered amongst the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, and there are a ton of cool restaurants in the Cabbagetown District to boot.

East Atlanta Village

This is a new emerging area amongst the hipster crowd. It is rich in diversity and you're sure to meet people from all over the city. It's a godsend for hipsters looking for another spot to drink and eat after Edgewood gets old. I am pretty new to East Atlanta Village, but I have already enjoyed some pretty cool music showcases down at The Basement.
