Sweet Auburn/Edgewood Ave.


Long known as the historic "Sweet Auburn" neighborhood associated with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement - the MLK Center, his boyhood home and Ebenezer Baptist Church where he preached are all within walking distance - the Sweet Auburn neighborhood has recently become a bustling nightlife district along Edgewood Avenue. Sister Louisa's Church & Ping Pong Emporium brought with it more reverie than reverence, helping build Edgewood Avenue's reputation as the place where Atlanta's party gets started. Celebrities Uber into the area for drinks, Ping-Pong, billiards and whatever else trouble they can get into. Take a trip through history at the APEX Museum, presenting North American and world history through an African-American perspective. Shop for a snack at the Sweet Auburn Curb Market, or catch a local or touring band at the Music Room, a venue that is both literally and figuratively underground.
