Little Five Points
Bordering Inman Park, Candler Park and Poncey-Highland, Little Five Points packs an array of eclectic dining, shopping and entertainment between Moreland and Euclid Avenues.
Dining: Choose from more than 430 microbrews and sample tasty bar snacks at The Porter Beer Bar, voted best bar food by Creative Loafing magazine. Don’t skip a visit to the iconic Vortex Bar and Grill, known for its one-of-a-kind burgers. If you dare, try the Triple Coronary Bypass Burger, made with three burger patties, three fried eggs, 14 slices of American cheese and 10 slices of bacon, served between two grilled cheese sandwiches.
Shopping: Music lovers and record collectors will feel right at home at Wax n’ Facts and Criminal Records. Edgy fashionistas will enjoy perusing through Rag-O-Rama’s extensive racks of vintage clothing, wigs, handbags, jewelry and costumes. For kitschy gifts and outlandish, fashion-forward party wear, visit the 10,000-square-foot retail superstore Junkman’s Daughter.
Entertainment: Variety Playhouse is a World War II-era theater converted into a playhouse and nightclub. Shows range from tribute bands, local musicians and comedy acts to well-known talent like Colbie Caillat and Gnarls Barkley. For a more intimate experience, mosey over to Star Community Bar and Vinyl Lounge. This popular live-music venue hosts a variety of late-night entertainers throughout the week including comedians, DJs and bands. Don’t miss the tucked-away shrine to Elvis Presley, featuring a replica of the notorious golden toilet. For comedy acts, original plays, well-known dramas and more, check out 7 Stages Theatre and Horizon Theatre Company.
