About Brookhaven

Located just northeast of Buckhead, Brookhaven has long been known as one of the premier places to live in Metro Atlanta. Historic Brookhaven, an area surrounding the Brookhaven Country Club, is home to some of the finest homes in the Greater Atlanta area.

Originally settled in the early 1800s, it wasn’t until the early 1900s when Brookhaven’s population really started to grow. With major construction and development starting in the 1950s, the area transformed by the 1980s, and the population soared.

In December of 2012 the area was finally incorporated as its own city, bounded by the Fulton County line to the west, Interstate 285 to the north, the city of Chamblee/Clairmont Rd to the east, and Interstate 85 to the south. With its own government, police, and public works divisions, the city of Brookhaven is on its way to making the area an even better place to live.


Discover a community that is thriving, where everything you need is at your doorstep.

Brookhaven is a place to play golf at Mount Warren Park Golf Club or Windaroo Lakes Golf Club, netball, rugby and baseball at Hammel Park Sports Field, where the facilities cater to all interests and levels of experience.

It’s a place to taste gourmet desserts at the Belgian Chocolate Saloon in Beenleigh, have a drink with friends at Windaroo Tavern, take a tour of the Beenleigh Artisan Distilliers and enjoy fresh local produce at the Early Bird and Breakfast Markets in Beenleigh Town Square.



Within the city limits is a mixed-use development called Town Brookhaven. Located in between the Brookhaven MARTA train station and Oglethorpe University, Town Brookhaven has just about everything you could need or want in one convenient location. There’s a Publix grocery store, Costco, CineBistro movie theatre and many boutiques.

There are also great places to eat like Bua Thai and Sushi, There Restaurant and Bar, Noche and more! There are many other shops and restaurants throughout the City of Brookhaven on Dresden Drive at Village Place, on Peachtree Blvd, and some eclectic restaurants and shops on Buford Highway.

In addition, Brookhaven is only about 2 miles from Lenox Mall and Phipps Plaza in Buckhead. Lenox Mall has over 250 stores on four levels including a large food court. Phipps Plaza is about half the size of Lenox Mall, but has many luxury retailers like Gucci, Giorgio Armani, and Tiffany & Co. Brookhaven also plays host to tons of great events and festivals throughout the year, so there is no shortage of things to do.
