Why This Area?

Sweet Auburn Seafood is delighted to be part of the historic Sweet Auburn neighborhood, Atlanta’s old Fourth Ward. Auburn Avenue boasts of a proud history of family and business life where it once was the richest avenue of commerce in the entire US for African American entrepreneurs. Its storied entertainment history includes the legendary Royal Peacock Lounge where notables like Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Gladys Knight, Aretha Franklin, James Brown and many others performed. Each year millions of tourists flock to Atlanta’s Sweet Auburn area. It is home to the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site which explores Dr. King’s legacy in the Civil Rights movement and displays one of the city’s two Nobel Peace Prizes. The site also features the restored King Birth Home; Ebenezer Baptist Church; the burial sites of Dr. King and his wife, Coretta Scott King; and the International Walk of Fame – an interactive memorial made of shoe prints from influential Civil Rights activists. Nearby the Auburn Avenue Research Library, The Apex Museum, Center for Civil and Human Rights, the Georgia Aquarium, and the World of Coca-Cola Museum and many festivals draw visitors.
