Each year, Creative Loafing releases its Best of Atlanta edition (on stands now). The awards range from Best Collective Artistic “Aw, Hell Naw!” to the Best Tuna Sandwich in the City. Getting an award is a badge of honor in Atlanta and, this year, Old Fourth Ward was voted “Best Bet For Next Hot Hood!”
In addition to the residents of our neighborhood widely considered to be awesome (for some reason left out of the article), CL cited these reasons:
- The restaurant explosion happening on Edgewood
- An increasing number of hot spots like Sound Table, Noni’s, and Cafe Circa (plus Vesuvius, P’Cheen, Corner Tavern, … for a more complete list go here).
- Historic Fourth Ward Park is well on its way to be a rock star destination in the heart of the city… and a lot of it is scheduled to be completed by end of year.
Congratulations to us!
