Cheshire Bridge, the name is synonymous with being unique and diverse. And that’s who we are…we are uniquely diverse! We are home to a group of truly unique Atlanta businesses that remind old time Atlanta folk what made the city a great place to live back then. The Bridge is home to a unique collection of businesses that range from The Colonnade Restaurant, a venerable Atlanta institution, to the beloved Nakato’s Japanese restaurant to LGBT Mecca’s like The Heretic. Ask anyone and they’ll tell ya’ that Cheshire Bridge is the most fun street in Atlanta!
Cheshire Bridge Road pre-dates the city of Atlanta showing up in state militia records as early as May 1823. It was originally a farming corridor which attracted settlers in the 1820s. Two brothers, Napoleon and Jerome Cheshire owned farms on opposite sides of the South Fork of Peachtree Creek connecting their farms by a bridge known as…Cheshire Bridge! The corridor remained farming until the early 20th century when suburban development and commerce moved into the area
The Cheshire Bridge Business Association’s main purpose is to look after the welfare and continued success of business located along Cheshire Bridge Road. We are primarily comprised of businesses along Cheshire Bridge Road although any neighbor is free to join.
The purpose of the Cheshire Bridge Business Association is to:
- Provide a unified voice to its members that protects the Corridor against legislative action that might threaten the unique culture and diversification that has been created over decades
- To work with the community and local government to beautify the corridor by exploring ways to improve safety, sidewalks, and street lighting
Membership is free although a donation helps to guarantee the success of the Association and its agenda.
