Your guide to the southeast's best spot for needlepoint, a daytime destination. Ladybird originally opened up on Ponce, Atlanta's newest hotspot, in the back of a clothing store in the 1970s, but quickly became a destination for needlepoint enthusiasts in the city. Today, Ladybird is open late, offering a point-of-sale shop open until 3 in the morning.


Located on the heart of the Beltline at mile marker 9.25, Ladybird Grove and Mess Hall is the place to go for campfire cuisine and a fun, outdoorsy time. Striving to be the best backyard spot on the popular trail, it definitely succeeds with its amazing menu and outside entertainment. Walkers and bikers will stop in for a local beer, and diners come from near and far to enjoy the atmosphere and shareable menu items. Get a group together and visit this trendy spot for some great eats and an even better time!

Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall is joining forces with Switchyards, the Atlanta-based neighborhood work club, to transform the restaurant’s BeltLine-adjacent patio into what’s being coined as the “first entirely outdoor” shared workspace. The initiative is part of Switchyards’ ongoing Curb Cup program — the pop-up cart on a mission to provide an escape from home to Switchyards members — the club will provide free coffee and socially distanced outdoor workspace through a month-long, open-air residency at Ladybird. This will be open to Switchyards members, their guests, and those on the waitlist, per availability. (Source: whatnowatlanta.com)


We’ve all been on a weekend group text when someone chimes in with, “Let’s go to the BeltLine, and then let’s go to Ladybird!” Once the weather warms up, this spot becomes one of the most popular patios in the city. It’s dog friendly, has an outdoor bar inside a vintage camper for when it gets really crowded, and has a cute lodge theme that will make you nostalgic for camp, or Moonrise Kingdom. Besides drinks, they serve food too, with snacks like pimento cheese fritters and homemade jerky, and larger options like the backyard BBQ board for when everyone from your group text decides to join.

Nestled against the busy BeltLine Eastside Trail, this sprawling restaurant and hangout spot is a hipster haven. The high-concept design—expansive screened-in porch, forest mural, woodsy graphics, picnic-style tables—helps you imagine you’re at a summer camp that serves cocktails but doesn’t make you hike. If you’re traveling in a pack, go for the seasonal Patio Punch (eight servings for $55, 16 servings for $100). 684 John Wesley Dobbs Avenue, 404-458-6838, ladybirdatlanta.com (Source: www.atlantamagazine.com)
