Owned by the brothers Jakob, located in the historic Castleberry Hill section of Downtown Atlanta, Elliott Street Deli & Pub is well known for its authentic neighborhood hospitality, mouthwatering sandwiches, ice cold beer, and legendary local music and art scene.

This exceptional property began as a burned-out, abandoned building built circa 1870. originally built as a carriage house to service the busy central business, city and capitol districts of `original' Atlanta - From the early 1950’s until 1982 - 51 Elliott Street was home to the legendary Jazz club "THE Birdcage" which hosted many notables in the music world, including Isaac Hayes, Gladys Knight, and Curtis Mayfield just to name a few.

After an almost million-dollar complete rebuild and renovation which left nothing but the brick walls of this turn of the century building remaining, a notable neighborhood watering hole was created and a legacycontinued.

Now, 11 years later, established and thriving, this Pub is a staple on the Atlanta food, music, art, nightlife and just `cool-place to hang out' scene - with a reputation for the `Best Sandwich in the City' and a place to hear some of the most talented musicians in the world.

Elliott Street Deli and Pub goes the distance

Castleberry Hill’s beacon of nightlife turns 10

On Sat., April 2, Castleberry Hill's Elliott Street Deli and Pub turns 10. The enduring local music hangout, owned and operated by brothers Mike and Peter Jakob, has played a key role in developing Atlanta's creative jazz scene. Even politicians mingle among the pub's regulars. "[Mike and Peter] create one of those authentic, neighborhood-friendly places where everyone feels welcome," says Atlanta City Councilman Kwanza Hall, who represents the area. "It's Atlanta at its best."

Hall says he's proposed the City of Atlanta recognize the date as "Elliott Street Pub Day" in 2016.

For the April 2 anniversary bash, bassist Kevin Scott and Atlanta Funk Society perform, alongside MC Devon Licker and Talloolah Love's Burlesque. Kebbi Williams and the Wolfpack also bring the power of Atlanta's premier large jazz ensemble to the mix. And true to form, fires will roar as a tower created by local artist Evereman burns throughout the night.

The beacon at 51 Elliott St. wasn't always the nightlife hub it is today. "We found this abandoned, burned-out crack house in the spring of 2004, while riding bicycles through our deserted city at 2 a.m.," Mike says. "The first thing we noticed was the view of the city — and it had no neighbors to complain about noise. We were only looking at it as a place to live and a yard for Jakob Brothers Construction. We had no idea that we would be opening a pub and a music venue two years later."

The Jakobs have since hosted countless festivals and parties, including early Flux-related blowouts — the annual art installation street party moved to Old Fourth Ward in 2015. On one memorable night in 2013, a pack of musicians took to the street outside the pub to play a beaten-down Range Rover as a percussive instrument. On another occasion last year, Charlie Smith's fire-coughing metal rooster sculpture entertained people for a "Burning Man decompression party."

The Pub started hosting regular jazz nights at "The 51" space downstairs, when Elliott Street employee and saxophonist Jordan Shalhoup suggested booking music on Wednesday nights. "Jordan brought a bunch of really talented local musicians to play, and we started meeting all these badass players looking for a place to play," Mike says.

Local heavyweights including Akeem Marble, Justin Chesarek, Eric Fontaine, Colin Agnew, and Kebbi Williams became regulars. Soon, guitarist Jacob Deaton introduced the Sounds from the Underground series, and prolific bass player Kevin Scott moved his Tuesday night jams there in 2013. "The 51 is home base for the most progressive musicians and artists in Atlanta," Scott says. "Elliott Street provides a safe and supportive home for forward-minded musicians, where they can all try new things out collectively."

Elliott Street Pub may only be 10 years old, but it has witnessed a world of growth in that time. And just as vibrantly as the molten iron flows during one of their many iron pour parties, the pub's spirit remains a beacon of nightlife for South Downtown.

6 delicious deli sandwiches in Atlanta

Krista Miller - The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, May 5, 2016

Bread. Meat. Cheese. It seems so simple, the deli sandwich.  Yet, when you find a truly great one, there is bound to be a happy dance involved. What makes a great deli sandwich? It all starts with great bread. From there, fresh produce, rich cheese and sliced meats are all bound together with mustard, oil or mayonnaise. So, where can you find one? Here are a few of the best around town. Elliot Street Deli and Pub - 51 Elliott St SW, Atlanta; www.elliottstreet.com If you like your sandwiches with a side of Newcastle and a shot of Fireball, this is your spot.  Located in the shadows of the Georgia Dome in Castleberry Hill, there are no frills about this place. Just good times and great food. Try the mad Italian for a sandwich that’s overflowing with greatness.  Sliced bread is piled with two kinds of ham, honey-glazed and spicy, mortadella, Genoa salami, provolone cheese and pesto mayonnaise. Lettuce, tomatoes, roasted red peppers and oil and vinegar round it out.

Hipster's guide to Atlanta's Westside

Avery Newmark, The Atlanta Journal Constitution - Oct 4, 2017

The word hipster can be a loaded one, but most will agree the term exudes distinct qualities, namely independence, appreciation for the arts and counter-cultural ideals.  All those characteristics happen to describe many of the dwellers of Westside Atlanta, which includes West Midtown and areas near the Atlanta Beltline’s Westside Trail. For those who like to think of themselves as hipsters,  there are places just as cool and counter-culture as you are. Take a look at these select spots on Atlanta’s Westside that are tailor-made for the consummate hipster. Elliott Street Deli & Pub 51 Elliott St. SW, Atlanta. 404-523-2174. Tiny and eccentric Elliott Street Deli & Pub has existed long before it fell in the shadows of Mercedes-Benz Stadium —since 2006 to be exact. This blue-collar dive was formerly a jazz club known as Dee's Bird Cage, but is now known for its friendly and outdoor setting, hot and cold sandwiches and live music down in the basement. Come for a date or after a game at the stadium, and you're sure to have an amazing time.

Thrillist - Elliott Street Deli & Pub is as authentic as the centuries-old building in which it lives.

By Lisa Elbert @4lease The tiny -- so tiny, you may not even know it existed -- neighborhood pub is known for its deli sandwiches upstairs, and live music venue, The 51, downstairs. The sandwiches are exactly what you’d expect of your butcher paper-packaged meal: quality meat topped with the proper accoutrement and served fresh-baked bread at an affordable price. There are classics like the French Dip, Reuben, and all-beef hot dogs, and specialties like the Elliott Street Ultimate which features three types of meat, two cheeses, and a whole host of toppings and spreads. Stop in, grab a sandwich, and head downstairs for cheap beer, live jazz, and burlesque.
