"Great coffee & hang-out spots"

Marietta Street, not to be confused with the City of Marietta, runs through Downtown Atlanta as well as several other popular Atlanta neighborhoods. Although it is an older area with large commercial buildings, new coffee shops, art galleries and boutiques now make this location a great hangout spot.

This area is really popular for people who are working downtown, as well as for students living close-by. Georgia State University and Georgia Tech are not too far away. This makes Marietta Street the perfect place to meet up with friends and have a good time. Octane Coffee Bar & Lounge, Spoon and Toscano & Sons Italian Market (known for their great paninis), are just a few of the restaurants that you might want to visit if you find yourself driving down Marietta Street.

The only downside is that parking can get a little crazy on busy nights. If you choose alternative traveling methods, public transportation is in walking distance. The Five Points MARTA (train) station is not too far away, which makes commuting a breeze.

The large industrial-style buildings in this area create a unique environment for residents. Lofts are one of the most popular living options if you are considering relocating here. With high ceilings, wide spaces and huge windows you are sure to enjoy coming home just as much as being away.

"Good for students and folks who like to eat"

Marietta Street really is just that - a street - but it's a pretty cool one.

As it serves as the southwest border of Georgia Tech's campus (and despite the fact that it rubs elbows with English Ave, one of ATL's scariest 'hoods), it's perennially popular with students. To that end, it's dotted with the kind of pupil-friendly establishments you'd expect - great coffee shops with WI-FI, mostly inexpensive eats and casual bars - and a few pricer, swankier options thrown in for the intown spenders (Bocado, Miller's Union).

A real highlight of the area, in my humble opinion, is 5 Seasons Brewing. You'll probably have to deal with the crush of drunk college kids on weekend nights (though GA Tech is known to be one of the tamer Atlanta higher eds - chalk it up to the nuggets of truth in the stereotypes surrounding the "tech" part), but the beer is worth it.

Brewed on the premises using local and sustainable practices when possible, it just goes down easy. I'd hit up La Fonda Cantina (my favorite salsa in the city) or Six Feet Under (for the great skyline view from the patio and tasty seafood - and that's coming from a former Marylander) for food and then hit 5 Seasons for drinkies and one of their $1 boules made from spent brewing grain. Mmmm.

Not because the food at 5 is bad, mind you, it's very tasty - if just a tad overpriced. I just have a soft spot for the Sandy Springs location, and this newer, fancier 5 just doesn't compare for me.

Cheers!
