There are some good restaurants and bars in the area. The Earl is an an East Atlanta Village experience and is better than you may think it would be based on the decor. Midway has one of the best patios and beer lists in town.

Went with a group after a Habitat build. Great fun dining out on a patio, then fun games of Bocce in the court right in the middle of everything. Would enjoy spending more time there

The area has so much going for it. Great neighborhoods where people are active and involved. Has a variety of small shops and good places to eat. Close to everywhere via I-20 & 75.

You can find some great eats in East Atlanta but you will also will be dissapointed in some. The area is worth exploring but I would not explore it alone.

East Atlanta has one of the highest densities of bars and good food in all of Atlanta. Park close, the area can get a bit dodgy late at night, but it's worth it for a burger at The Earl or a pint at Midway. The Flat Iron is one of Atlanta's coolest bar spaces, and Holy Taco is racking up... More

Fun place to spend an afternoon, great place for nightlife. Mary's and My Sister's Room are some of the best places to hang out in the city.

East Atlanta has grown over the years. It is full of really neat shops and good resturants. Great for weekend or weekday hangout.

East Atlanta is a great destination if you're looking for eclectic bars, restaurants and shops. Far less upscale than the Virginia Highlands, the area is casual and relaxed. While the Heaping Bowl has closed, the burgers and fried okra at the E.A.R.L. can't be missed. While there, you can enjoy cheap beer and good bands. Local gay bar Mary's has... More
