Winner: Best town square in Atlanta | Best of Atlanta 

The best town square in Atlanta means being more than just a space. It means serving the community, capturing the area’s history and combining culture and entertainment.

This year one square in particular had a sustained and passionate voter base. The winner is…

Covington Square, a write-in candidate, swept the poll with 41 percent of the vote. Its food scene has had a buzzy year, with a glowing review of City Pharmacy, a new restaurant that puts out “a dinner experience to rival many in this big city.”

Downtown Newnan Square is a historic trip worth taking, and it made it to the second place spot. With some buildings more than a century old, it is a fascinating connection to Georgia’s past.
