The West Side of North of Gaston
All over the country, certain neighborhoods are making themselves known as the next big thing. Atlanta has the Virginia Highlands, New York City has SoHo, and Charleston has SNOB (Slightly North of Broad). In Savannah, the neighborhood that is the talk of the town is West NOG (West/North of Gaston).
For decades, Savannahians have known that the place to grab a great burger and their pint of choice is the Crystal Beer Parlor. This restaurant is beloved by locals and visitors alike, and it made the list of “Our Favorite Burgers in Downtown Savannah.” Noble Fare is also located in West NOG and has gained its own following. This cozy restaurant has become Savannah’s best-kept secret as the place to go for a special occasion.
Savannah Coffee Roasters has also been a welcome addition to the West NOG neighborhood, offering fresh, locally-roasted coffee beans and full food menu. Savannah Coffee Roasters opens at 7am for breakfast, and also offers lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch. Stop in for a coffee to go and enjoy your morning coffee in one of our favorite Savannah Squares, Pulaski Square.
In addition to the new development of The Alice Street Townhouses and the Tattnall Townhomes, properties of all shapes and sizes are available. The neighborhood includes SCAD students, families, young professionals and retirees. Residents of West NOG enjoy walking and riding bikes through their neighborhood. Savannah’s West NOG Neighborhood’s proximity to Forsyth Park, restaurants and shopping lend it an energy without diminishing its friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
