Little Five Points (or L5P) has been the intown epicenter of all things alternative for many years. This is a thriving business district with a wide array of shops and services. From futons to frisbees and crystals to organic produce, you'll find it here. In addition to retail shops, there are a number of service businesses in the district (including competing tattoo parlors). There are several restaurants, coffee shops, and pubs scattered throughout as well. Little 5 Points is also the home of the 7 Stages Theatre and Variety Playhouse, two excellent arts venues.
