Profile:

Little Five Points (or L5P) has been the intown epicenter of all things alternative for many years. This is a thriving business district with a wide array of shops and services. From futons to frisbees and crystals to organic produce, you'll find it here. In addition to retail shops, there are a number of service businesses in the district (including competing tattoo parlors). There are several restaurants, coffee shops, and pubs scattered throughout as well. Little 5 Points is also the home of the 7 Stages Theatre and Variety Playhouse, two excellent arts venues.

Parking is easier here than in some intown shopping districts but can still be tricky, particularly in the evenings. There are parking lots in front of several blocks of buildings in the district, and these are free during the day, but are intended only for patrons of the businesses on which the parking fronts. There is also a large pay lot accessible from Euclid Avenue. On-street parking is available throughout much of the area, but be careful to observe and obey the street signs so your car doesn't get towed or booted.

This area is not particularly well served by MARTA bus routes. Only the #3 (Auburn Ave./MLK Jr. Dr.) bus actually passes through, but the area is only a few blocks from the Inman Park/Reynoldstown MARTA rail station (go south on Moreland to DeKalb Avenue and turn right), so it's not that much of an issue. There are also routes that pass within a few blocks of L5P, including: the #6 (Emory), which comes down Moreland (Briarcliff) from the Emory area and turns on North Avenue (north of L5P) before ending up at the Edgewood/Candler Park station; the #2 (Ponce de Leon), which traverses Ponce de Leon Avenue (several blocks north of L5P).
