WSB’s “Hipster Guide” to the Westside

westside-hipsterWSB did a write-up about the “hipster” places to visit on the Westside of Atlanta. Here is the list of places and activities they mentioned. To read the whole article, click here.

Elliott Street Deli & Pub

Tiny and eccentric Elliott Street Deli & Pub has existed long before it fell in the shadows of Mercedes-Benz Stadium —since 2006 to be exact. This blue-collar dive was formerly a jazz club known as Dee’s Bird Cage, but is now known for its friendly and outdoor setting, hot and cold sandwiches and live music down in the basement.

Mammal Gallery

Indie or not, it’s easy to appreciate the eclectic space of Mammal Gallery, a music venue and collaborative performance and art space. South Broad Street, a usually pretty empty area, resurrects when the gallery has a show.

Brash Coffee

This tiny cafe opened in 2015, constructed from two shipping containers − the first public shipping container project in Atlanta. The Brash “box” is only 400 square feet, but the enclosed patio offers plenty of indoor and outdoor seating for the coffee and architectural lovers.

Castleberry Hill Art Stroll

The second Friday of every month, round up your friends or family and head to the Castleberry Hill Art Stroll. It’s a free, self-guided tour that walks through fascinating and diverse galleries, as well as neighborhood businesses and restaurants.

Rowdy Dowdy

If you’re looking for a rambunctious, glitzy time, head on over to Rowdy Dowdy. The unique and eccentric art collective takes place in a renovated Adair Park auto mechanic’s shop, which just so happens to also be where the “Rowdy Girls” live.

Uptown Comedy Corner

Nothing compares with the up close and personal feeling of a great comedy club. Uptown’s hosted some of the biggest names in comedy for the last 20 years: Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Mo’Nique, Kevin Hart and many more.

Marcia Wood Gallery

Goodbye spinning rock, hello Autoeater. Marcia Wood Gallery was behind that gigantic move, brokering the 16-ton Carrara marble structure devouring a Fiat Panda piece for Midtown Alliance.
