Owner description: This trendy neighborhood has been reborn over the last decade with hot spots like Echo Lounge, a cutting edge nightclub with live alternative music, and Heaping Bowl and Brew, an eclectic eatery serving signature entrees piled into oversized bowls.
Reviewed 7 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.
