The Corner Tavern survived a fire in 2013
The Corner Tavern
In the 1960’s it was the Redwood Lounge, a rowdy bar that had a reputation as the first stop for newly released inmates of the Atlanta Penitentiary. In the 1970’s surrounding neighbors bought the Redwood and turned it into the L5P Community Pub, which became a landmark that symbolized the resurgence of the district. Today, the L5 Corner Tavern carries on the tradition of the Pub by catering to neighborhood residents.
