Uptown Athens

From Vintage to Chic, You’ll Find it Here!

Directly north of Ohio University’s College Green, Uptown Athens is the place for students to mix, meet, eat and shop. As a result, Court and its side streets in Uptown Athens are decked with funky shops offering everything from the extraordinarily unique to the timeless basics.


Court Street is one-way (South to North). During the school year parking spots can be hard to come by. The Athens City Parking Garage is centrally located: from Court Street, turn right onto Washington. The garage is on the right.
