Walkability + Charm on the Marietta Square

Before working with a client to find this adorable house within walking distance to the Marietta Square, my visits had been limited to jury duty and picking up Paul’s Pot Pies. I began to feel right at home in the not-so-far-away small town atmosphere.  To continue my research, I suggested a date night promising to find a spot with a wide variety of obscure beers. I found it at Two Birds Taphouse . The square on a Friday night was packed with people and fun things to do. It has officially come to life with a variety of housing options, new restaurants, Glover Park Brewery and the upcoming Marietta Square Market, a redeveloped historic warehouse with eateries. Where else can you feel like you are in a small town but have easy access to 75?

With a wood stone pizza oven and regional beers in a beautifully-designed industrial space, this is a winner of a date night pick. Hubby was happy with his dark, murky brews and pizza.

As we walked back to our car, we noticed that Kiosco, the Columbian restaurant was still as filled with diners as it was when we walked by earlier. There was also a blues band playing at Hawg & Ale across the street. Gotta love that name!
