Where to Eat and Drink in West End and Westview

A neighborhood dining and drinking guide

View as Map

Adair Park, West End, and Westview are home to Atlanta’s historic African-American colleges Clark Atlanta University, Spelman, and Morehouse. And, now these Southwest Atlanta neighborhoods are also certified “on the BeltLine,” with the expansion of the Westside Trail. With it comes developments like Lee + White in West End, with Monday Night Brewing’s Garage, Cutured South fermented market and kombucha taproom, and soon to open ASW Distillery and Hop City’s new pub. A few blocks away, brewpub Lean Draft House became the first restaurant to open along the trailhead. More restaurants are opening every day along the neighborhoods’ main streets.

These restaurants in these three historic neighborhoods include everything from vegetarian and vegan to barbecue, casual breakfast spots, and beyond. Here, now, are the restaurants, bars, and breweries to visit in Adair Park, Westview, and West End.
