Between the Atlanta University Center and south Downtown lies Castleberry Hill, a neighborhood with one of the most colorful histories in the city. During Atlanta?s infancy, it served as the town?s answer to a red-light district until the onset of the Civil War, whereupon it ceased its wicked ways and transformed into a center of industry and commerce. The area was once ground zero for artists on the rise, home to loft dwellers by day and a rowdy nightlife scene after hours, but its luster has dimmed after a hot real estate market out-priced artists. Its mix of vintage architecture, historic warehouses, and a killer skyline view make it the city's preferred urban haunt for on-location music video, TV, and film shoots. The Castleberry Art Stroll, held on the second Friday of every month, is an open gallery tour with performances, street food and, at the Elliot Street Bar and Pub, a signature iron-pour where people can scratch their own block molds beforehand.
