A little over a month after closing its flagship brewpub at the Prado in Sandy Springs, 5 Seasons Brewing announced on Facebook the closing of its remaining location in Westside. The decade-old brewpub, located on Marietta Street across from Octane, closes on Thursday, February 28.

In the post, 5 Seasons Westside owners chef David Larkworthy and brewer Crawford Moran say they were “unable to renew” the lease. Larkworthy and Moran closed their Alpharetta location in 2017.

5 Seasons Westside was one of the first restaurants to open along the Marietta Street Artery corridor, followed by Bocado later in 2009. Octane opened at the fork between Howell Mill Road and Marietta Street in 2004 on the site of a former Standard Oil gas station. The coffee shop quickly became a hangout for Georgia Tech students and staff, and a popular meeting place for Atlanta’s growing start-up and creative communities.

The Marietta Street Artery district is flanked by the railroad and was once home to several stockyards, industrial warehouses, and factories like King Plow — now a performance and visual arts center that includes concert venue Terminal West.

In addition to 5 Seasons, Octane, and Bocado, other nearby restaurants in the Marietta Street district include Miller Union, The Optimist, Eight Sushi Lounge, Bartaco, The Local Pizzaiolo, Donetto, The Painted Duck, AIX, and Tin Tin.
