The Gayborhood: Atlanta’s Westside

Westside in Atlanta, Georgia

Situated conveniently across I-85/75 west of Midtown, the city’s main gay hub, the Westside (also known as West Midtown) was mostly a swath of warehouses and industrial concerns — some of them vacant — until developers, restaurateurs, and artists began moving in over the past 10 to 15 years.

This large neighborhood sprawls a bit between downtown to the south and Buckhead to the north, but for the best concentration of dapper housewares shops and chichi nightspots and eateries, head for Howell Mill Road, which has plenty of diversions between Huff Road and Marietta Street; this latter thoroughfare then continues south with still more worthy places to see-and-be-seen.
