| Twisted Soul Cookhouse & Pours

The Westside neighborhoods of Blandtown, Berkeley Park, and the Marietta Street Artery are steeped in Atlanta’s industrial, stockyards, and railroad history. Small enclaves of charming bungalows scattered throughout the city’s northwest corridor date as far back as 1910 and were once home to the area’s workforce.

These neighborhoods have become popular (and mostly affordable) places to live for families, young professionals, creatives, and students and professors from neighboring Georgia Tech over the last decade. Those buying homes here have the last portions of the Atlanta BeltLine to look forward to in their future. Anchored by Bellwood Quarry Park, just west of Marietta Boulevard, the northwest Beltline trails will eventually snake through these tree-lined neighborhoods, passing dining and drinking destinations such as Star Provisions, Westside Provisions District and the Ironworks, and Monday Night Brewing.

Here are a few breweries, bars, and award-winning restaurants to consider when visiting these historic neighborhoods in northwest Atlanta.
