Blandtown is a neighborhood in the West Midtown area of Atlanta Georgia. It is located along either side of Huff Road from Howell Mill Road west to Marietta Blvd. It was one of the first black settlements around Atlanta after the Civil War. As a community it declined from the 1950s through 1990s when the area was rezoned from residential to heavy industrial. Today Blandtown is a rapidly transforming part of Atlanta, known for its home furnishings stores, new apartment and condo complexes.
Once among the city's best kept secrets, rapid developments made in recent years have transformed Blandtown into one of Atlanta's most trendy locales as establishments like TopGolf have brought additional attention to the neighborhood.
You will find a few streets still embodying the industrial feel of the area's past, but several streets also have unique modern builds. There are gated communities, row houses, and condos to choose from as well.
Bone Garden Cantina, Twisted Soul Cookhouse, and Bacchanalia are just a few hot spots to eat at in the neighborhood. For dessert, be sure to visit Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams. There are a select few coffee shops and restaurants to choose from in the immediate area.
