Castleberry Hill is an eclectic and artistic neighborhood just southwest of downtown Atlanta near the Georgia Dome and new Falcons Stadium (see area map). The Castleberry Hill Art Stroll is a regular event, and there are numerous historic warehouse buildings in the area along with restaurants and unique housing options.
All involve walking two to three blocks through transitional areas that don’t see a great deal of pedestrian traffic, but that may changes as redevelopment projects are spurred by development of the new football stadium. See below for the various transit options for getting to the neighborhood.
If you plan to bike or walk from the Garnett MARTA station, take the Broad Street exit out of the station and turn left on Trinity Avenue and go up and over the bridge. At this point, the street changes to Peters Street. This route provides access to the central part of the neighborhood and is the most direct route to Cloud IX Restaurant and Lounge (7-minute walk away) and other restaurants on Peters Street.
From Dome Station
The Dome MARTA station on the blue/green rail line is the closest station to the north edge of the neighborhood and to the Elliott Street Pub (10-minute walk away), The Smoke Ring and No Mas! Cantina. Take the Philips Arena exit out of the station and at the top of the escalator at street level, turn right in front of Philips Arena and go up the staircase. At the top of the stairs, turn right on Centennial Olympic Park Drive, which turns into Walker Street. This route is the safest of the three.
From Vine City
Next to the Dome MARTA station is Vine City, a small neighborhood station. Follow the signs pointing to the Georgia Dome to exit the station and turn right on Northside Drive, the major road in front of the station (and the Dome). Northside Drive formers the westernmost edge of the neighborhood and provides the most direct access to the Castleberry Inn and Suites and Paschal’s restaurant, both about a 15-minute walk away.
Bus 3 and bus 13 travel to the neighborhood from the Five Points MARTA station, which are good options after dark. For real-time bus arrivals, use the OneBusAway website or app. The MARTA on the Go app has printed schedules, or look up route information online.
