Fun place to spend an afternoon, great place for nightlife. Mary's and My Sister's Room are some of the best places to hang out in the city.

“Hidden Treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2012

East Atlanta has grown over the years. It is full of really neat shops and good resturants. Great for weekend or weekday hangout.

“Great laid-back neighborhood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2006

East Atlanta is a great destination if you're looking for eclectic bars, restaurants and shops. Far less upscale than the Virginia Highlands, the area is casual and relaxed. While the Heaping Bowl has closed, the burgers and fried okra at the E.A.R.L. can't be missed. While there, you can enjoy cheap beer and good bands. Local gay bar Mary's has a fairly mixed crowd and offers karaoke on weekends. The Echo Lounge is a great place to hang out, as is the Flatiron. The neighborhood is still somewhat transitional, so not for those who are spooked by the occasional homeless person or grubby bar. I, however, have spotted a few celebrities hanging out in area dives.
