The Alternative

Born in the Spring of 1972, Creative Loafing celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2022. Consistent in our rich history has been our passion to serve Atlanta as a resource for — and reflection of — the city’s active urban adult audience.

The rise of mobile data access and social-driven media has given Creative Loafing the tools to more closely connect our audience with advertisers. Let us help you craft your story and engage the wide-reaching CL audience — and those beyond — you might want like to target. “In the know” Atlanta marketers know that Creative Loafing adds the edginess needed in social media campaigns for authenticity, outreach, and relevance.

While the pandemic caused many businesses to pause, those of us at Creative Loafing have been busier than ever working in the background to re-tool and redesign our website. You will see that in addition to adding new features, we’ve upgraded your favorites and expanded the ones the people of Atlanta and the southeast look to for planning where to go and what to do. We are excited to mark our golden anniversary and will be introducing a more streamlined and easier to access Creative Loafing. Contact us now so that we may give you preview of the future.
