Atlanta Late-Night Dining

20 April 2015

Cypress StreetAtlanta neighborhoods are starting to see more and more eateries that stay open after midnight. Regardless of where you’ve spent the first part of the evening, you’re never too far from a kitchen that’s open until the wee hours. Here, a few reliable late-night standards around in-town Atlanta.

Victory Sandwich Bar
By day, Decatur’s Victory Sandwich Bar is a great spot for meeting friends for a light lunch. In the late evening, though, it’s a bar with a relaxed vibe perfect for chilling on the patio with sandwiches and Jack & Coke slushies until 2 a.m. Their tasty sandwiches are small and cheap, so feel free to treat your experience like you’re noshing on tapas. Patrons seeking heartier fare—and absinthe-infused cocktails—will want to head to the affiliated speakeasy, Paper Plane next door. Open until 2 a.m. daily.

Cypress Street Pint & Plate
Becoming a regular is an easy sell at Cypress Street Pint & Plate. Home to the Sublime Doughnut Burger and a swoon-worthy meatball slider plate, this Midtown pub fits the bill for a quick snack, or a long, late evening. If you’re looking for somewhere to meet your friends before heading over to the Taste of Atlanta festival, this is a convenient landmark that’s only a two-minute walk from Tech Square. Open until 2:30 a.m. Monday through Saturday; closes at midnight on Sunday.

Ammazza Edgewood
If you’re in the Old Fourth Ward after midnight and are craving pizza, Ammazza’s your spot. The hipster pizza joint sells salads and legit Napoletana-style pizzas topped with fresh ingredients and housemade mozzarella. Open until 2 a.m. on weekends; closes at midnight Monday through Thursday.

Octopus Bar
East Atlanta’s gastronomic staple, Octopus Bar, continues to serve inventive late-night fare to an epicurious crowd. With Asian influences and a menu that rotates daily, diners can expect a range of small plates that wow—everything from raw oysters, to nigiri, fine cheeses, lobster rolls and desserts—as well as a diverse crowd of eaters and industry folks. Open until 2:30 a.m. Monday through Saturday; closed on Sunday.

Majestic Diner
Nothing hits the spot quite like a cheeseburger hot off the grill and an order of fries after a long night on the town. At longstanding Poncey-Highlands diner, The Majestic, you can order both dishes at any hour—it’s open 24 hours a day. On top of burgers and sandwiches, you can order breakfast all day. Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
