East Atlanta Area

The colloquially defined East Atlanta Area encompasses the neighborhoods of East Atlanta, Glenwood Park, and Ormewood Park. Located south of Edgewood and Reynoldstown and east of Grant Park, these neighborhoods are a perfect combination of culture and community. They are quirky, welcoming, tight-knit, and full of city pride.

Key Features

Spoiled for Choice: The East Atlanta area has everything from post-war bungalows and townhomes to traditional craftsmans and new construction. Many recently renovated homes in this area have larger backyards than other traditional urban houses.

Hive of Activity: In the 1990s, The East Atlanta Area underwent a revival with the development of East Atlanta Village. Now you will find eclectic boutiques, music venues, trendy scene restaurants, hole-in-the-wall coffee shops, music venues, and pet-friendly green spaces in this area. It is also home to Glenwood Park, a 28-acre award-winning mixed use brownfield redevelopment. These neighborhoods also host several events throughout the year, including the East Atlanta Strut, Battle of Atlanta Festival, Brownwood Park Bike Rally, and the East Atlanta Beer Festival.

Nest Picks

East Atlanta Village

Located at the intersection of Flat Shoals and Glenwood Avenues, this quirky area commonly referred to as "EAV" is home to eclectic restaurants, bars, music venues, and dance clubs. It may be small, but it packs a punch; everywhere you turn there is a new place to explore, and most nights there is a dance party, show, or sometimes even a festival.


The East Atlanta Restaurant and Lounge, or "EARL" for short, is a fixture in the neighborhood. This restaurant and bar with a stage in the back hosts live music most nights and is a favorite local watering hole.

Brownwood Park

This 12-acre community park also contains a recreation center, walking area, and nature trails, and is a favorite among East Atlanta Area residents.
