Style Across America: Nashville and Atlanta

Marto at Ponce City Market

“Atlanta style is very much driven by what’s happening in music—right now it’s millennial retro ’90s with a splash of West Coast and a dab of bright colors,” says Dina Marto, the Amman, Jordan–born, Marietta, Georgia-raised proprietor of Twelve Music & Studios, the Atlanta home of Epic Records and Rick Ross’s MMG label. “My wardrobe ranges from minimal chic to fly boss. I might do a business meeting, then turn around and go to a listening party or to the studio to check in on an artist.” Edgewood Avenue, a street filled with cozy bars and clubs, including The Music Room, is “a great place to discover new talent,” while El Bar, an underground boîte beneath a Mexican cantina, “always has the best DJs spinning.” Ponce City Market in the renovated Sears, Roebuck & Co. building in the historic Old Fourth Ward boasts local fashion darling Abbey Glass’s flagship, a Google Fiber Space, and a vast Central Food Hall. The landmark building connects to the Atlanta BeltLine, a 22-mile hiking and bike loop, while Skyline Park offers carnival games and minigolf, plus city views from its roof.
