Residents of our Beltline apartments will never be short on options when it comes to shopping, dining, and entertainment – that’s because the Ponce City Market is located just off the Eastside Trail mere steps from Edge on the Beltline.
Situated across from Historic Fourth Ward Park, the Ponce City Market opened in 2014 in the fully-renovated, massive Sears, Roebuck & Company building in Old Fourth Ward. In its opening year, Travel + Leisure ranked Ponce City Market as one of only 25 in its list of “The World’s Coolest New Tourist Attractions” – and for good reason. In the heart of the sprawling building is a giant marketplace where residents of our Inman Park apartments can eat, shop, and hang out. Let’s take a closer look at why the National Trust for Historic Preservation recognizes Ponce City Market as “history in the making”.
Satisfy your every craving
With over three dozen cafes, eateries, restaurants, and bars, visitors of Ponce City Market could spend weeks exploring every cuisine imaginable. From coffee and sweet treats to pizza and Middle Eastern fare, you’re sure to find something for even the pickiest of eaters at this spectacular establishment. Here’s the rundown on just a few of the places housed in Ponce City Market that will make every foodie drool.
9 Mile Station – Located on the roof of Ponce City Market with sprawling views of Atlanta’s skyline is 9 Mile Station. 9 Mile Station is an elevated beer garden offering an extensive collection of craft beers, and is also well-known for their insanely delicious brunch. While you’re sipping on mimosas, be sure to try one of their famous Big Ol’ Sticky Buns or go savory with the Popcorn Shrimp & Grits.
Botiwalla – As stated on their website, Botiwalla is an homage to the chef’s love of kebabs and Irani cafes. Known for its “Indian street food,” Botiwalla is serving up lamb burgers, Chicken Tikka rolls, spare ribs, and more. Wash it all down with a delicious and refreshing mango lassi or a boozy slushy.
H&F Burger – Got a hankering for cheeseburgers and beer? Make H&F Burger your destination when you visit Ponce City Market. Their “burger is a direct descendant of the original that debuted at the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair,” and it’s been winning awards ever since. Stick with The Original or try their Burger of the Month then finish the meal with a cold beer or milkshake.
Hop’s Chicken – You can’t live in the South without access to fried chicken nearby – that’s where Hop’s Chicken comes into play. Order chicken by the piece or try the Original Chicken Sandwich. Their biscuits are so good you can even order some biscuit mix to make them at home. Hop’s also serves beer and wine to wash down those delicious biscuits.
Minero – Everyone wants tacos every now and again. Whether that’s twice a week or twice a year, Minero is whipping up traditional tacos as well as some tacos with a southern twist. Try a taste of both with an order of Tacos al Pastor for a classic flavor and a Fried Catfish Taco for Mexican-meets-comfort-food. Be sure to take a peek at Minero’s impressive mezcal, tequila, and hand-crafted cocktail menus to find the perfect drink to pair with your tacos.
Ton Ton – Nothing is better than a hot bowl of ramen noodles on a chilly evening and Ton Ton is doing ramen right. Located in the Central Food Hall, Ton Ton’s menu may not be large with only a few appetizers and ramen dishes, but what it lacks in options it more than makes up for with flavor. Start with some gyoza or edamame then warm up with a Tonkotsu or Shoyo bowl of ramen.
Brezza Cucina – Pasta, pizza, and happy hour. What more could you really ask for? You can find all three of these wonderful things at Brezza Cucina. Cooking Italian food at its finest, their menu has options such as baked burrata, short rib pizza, tagliatelle with beef cheek, and veal chop over polenta. Be sure to check out their daily happy hour for $1 oysters.
