Meet The Generation Of Atlantans Who Helped Make Little Five Points What It Is Today

It’s impossible to miss the counterculture energy that thrives within the colorful buildings in Atlanta’s iconic Little Five Points.

Brick buildings that house quirky businesses, vintage shops, diverse restaurants and three theatre companies. You’ll notice bright murals, hand-painted business signs, unique logos and a lot of color; colorful walls, colorful hair, colorful clothes.

Hipsters and anarchists mesh with budding musicians and artists, as well as tourists, travelers, and teens from Atlanta’s suburbs in this unique enclave of independently owned businesses.

The neighborhood’s tagline “Everyone is welcome” is evident with people from all walks of life browsing the vast inventory at Junkman’s Daughter, posing for photographs in front of vibrant murals or walking through the Vortex skull on their way to eat a burger.

What might surprise these visitors is just how stable Little Five Points has been as an eclectic alternative business district in Atlanta for more than four decades.
