Westside

Westside Atlanta Neighborhoods


Once a wasteland of warehouses and industrial spaces, Atlanta's Westside has been transformed into what's arguably the city's hottest 'hood for top-shelf dining, loft living, and highbrow shopping. Indie galleries also have taken up residence and banded together with institutions such as the Atlanta Contemporary Arts Center to form the Westside Arts District. WAD hosts an afternoon art walk the third Saturday of every month featuring lectures, discussions, and musical performances at galleries such as Emily Amy, Get This!, the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, and more. Throw in the mixed-use, mega-shopping destination that is Atlantic Station - and the youthful brain trust of Georgia Tech - and you've got a section of town that's thriving despite tough economic times. At any given moment, former cotton gin and creative sanctuary known as the Goat Farm is flush with working artists rehearsing, welding, and hosting dinners. The Northside Tavern, a hole-in-the-wall blues joint, looks practically derelict in the daylight next to its nouveau industrial surroundings. But come nightfall, locals flock there for pool, tallboys, and of course, live music.
