Poncey-Highland is an electric Atlanta neighborhood rich in history and art, located just south of Virginia Highlands. Home of the Plaza Theater, this is the perfect location for residents and visitors to take in art-deco themes and refurbished warehouses. With the Beltline in its backyard, you’re just a hop, skip, or bike-ride away from Atlanta's best restaurants, breweries, and people-watching.
Developers have poured large investments into upgrading Poncey-Highland, so you’ll find many abandoned buildings turned into dynamic restaurants and 1920’s cottage homes flipped in value towards $1 million. This area has seen quite the revitalization, but the history remains and is still a selling point for many visitors.

Bordered by Old Fourth Ward and Little Five Points, Poncey Highland is a charismatic little neighborhood. It's great for all who enjoy the art scene, locally-owned shops, and off the beaten path dining experiences. With Freedom Park running through most of this neighborhood, you're most likely to spend time outdoors. It offers newcomers the chance to socialize and meet people in your area.
If you ask a local where to go on a Friday night in Poncey-Highland, you're most likely to hear about Hotel Clermont and Lounge. This is one of the city's oldest landmarks with three levels of fun.
You can enjoy a day on the rooftop with skyline views, head down to the hotel for a steak dinner at Tiny Lou’s, and grab a drink downstairs at Atlanta's first and longest-running bar. There are always art installations in the park’s green space and food festivals such as Taste of Atlanta. Home of the Poncey-Highland Playground and the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum, you can easily find fun for the whole family.
Poncey-Highlands is pretty central to all of intown’s happenings. It's a very walkable commute, and Marta is very accessible for those who work in different parts of town. There are plans to continue growing this community, but developers have promised to stay true to its original character and electric spirit.
