Do you love the true big city feel? The lights, the energy, the activity? Then Midtown is the place for you. Some of Atlanta's most iconic buildings like the Bank of America Plaza, call Midtown home and you will too.

So just where is Midtown?

The area known as Midtown technically lacks a legal definition from the point of view of zoning, but traditionally, it is the area lying between the commercial and financial districts of Atlanta and Buckhead to the north. As a general rule for moving to Midtown, it lies along Peachtree Street north of North Avenue and extends north until Peachtree Street changes names to Peachtree Road in Buckhead.

As with many other areas in the city of Atlanta, Midtown was part of an immense renewal effort in the last three decades which helped to bring new residents into the area with upscale apartments, condominiums, and a wealth of nightlife.

Shopping

Much like Buckhead to the immediate north, Midtown offers a vast variety of shopping from distinctive boutiques to department stores. As a result of the active redevelopment of the area in past years, anything a resident of Midtown could ever need – from groceries to clothes to art – can be found in your own backyard.

While the shopping is easy, Midtown is unquestionably known for the presence that the arts play. A selection of museums, such as the High Museum of Art, the Atlanta Ballet, the Woodruff Center for the Arts, and many more all call Midtown home.

Nightlife

The presence of the arts in Midtown means there is never a shortage of entertainment in the area. From the historic Fox Theatre to the most humble of venues, Midtown is known as “the heart of the arts” in Atlanta. At the same time, if you’re moving to Midtown, you are still only minutes away from the stadiums for professional sports, the Georgia Aquarium, and college competitions from the many schools in the area.

After a long day of shopping and enjoying the arts and all that Midtown has to offer, a cool refreshing drink would hit just the spot. Check out our favorite choices for last call in Midtown:

Our best call for last call in Midtown nightlife.

It may not be an exciting name, but Grain has one of the nicest bars and a solid, ever changing menu that combines old favorites with new flavors.

This spot combines an peculiar name with a younger crowd to bring back what we all love about college bars. The drinks are still cheap, the pizzas and sandwiches are delicious, and they stay open late for you night owls. Perfect for a night out after you move to Midtown!

If you’re looking to remember what made college bars so great or still think that college bars are great, then Hole in the Wall is the place for you. Plenty of cheap drinks and a rowdy atmosphere coupled with bands you’ve never heard of make this a great place any night.

Moving to Midtown offers a nearly perfect location if you are going to be working in the traditional business district or any one of the hundreds of companies that call downtown Atlanta home. Since Midtown lies alongside the Connector (the confluence of I-75 and I-85 where they run together through the middle of Atlanta) traffic can be heavy in the morning and evening commutes. On the other hand, easy access to several MARTA stations (The Atlanta-area monorail that connects the city) in the area give you the ability to dodge traffic and nix any commute. If you plan on moving to the Midtown area, you probably already know that rush hour can be tough.

Schools

Midtown is zoned in the Atlanta School District and technically only has two public schools in the area. As a result, most residents with school-age children opt for one of the many excellent private schools in the area, from Pace Academy to The Goddard School for preschoolers.

When it comes to colleges and universities, Georgia Tech is right in Midtown, as is the Savannah School of Art and Design (SCAD) Atlanta campus. Georgia State University lies immediately to the south of Midtown, and literally another dozen institutions of higher learning are found in the area.
