Filming Locations Guide: Where was Baby Driver filmed?

Posted by

Baby Driver is an action-thriller on wheels, although essentially different from blockbusters like the Fast and Furious series.

The story unfolds around a young driver trying to get away from a criminal life with the girl he loves.

Baby Driver was filmed in and around Atlanta, Georgia. The production made little use of CGI to film the stunts, and all the film is wrapped by the beat of an impressive selected soundtrack.

Baby Driver Movie Scene

English director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) is in charge of this movie, which has got outstanding reviews.

The cast is headed by Ansel Elgort, Lily James, Kevin Spacey, and Jamie Foxx.

Here is a spoiler-free selection of the most relevant filming locations of Baby Driver.

Bank robbery sequence
Baby Driver is set in Atlanta, and most of the movie was shot in the Downtown area.

The Candler Building in a corner of Peachtree St served as a bank for the first scene, filmed near Margaret Mitchell Square.

Some other confirmed locations, according to Atlanta Magazine, are the Criminal Records store (1154 Euclid Avenue NE), the laundromat Splash (2459 Piedmont Road Northeast), the Peachtree Center, Georgia Tech, Fulton County Airport, and the town of Monroe, east of Atlanta.

Warehouse scene
The production used the neglected Pullman Yard, a historic industrial complex in Kirkwood.

This place has been recently acquired by a company called Atomic Entertainment to redevelop it into studios and residences.

Octane coffee Atlanta
There are several Octane bars in Atlanta, but the one from Baby Driver is actually a Slice Pizza, located at Fairlie and Poplar.

Also, there is a scene at the Goodfellas Pizza and Wings at 615 Spring Street Northwest.

Bridge final scene
A major scene was shot at the Jerry Wadley Memorial Bridge over the Ocmulgee River in Juliette (the same town where the classic '91 movie Fried Green Tomatoes was filmed).

Debora Bar Dinner
At first, we thought that the diner where Debora works is the Majestic Diner at Poncey-Highland (also in Atlanta), because of the design of the seats in the bar and other details.

Bo's Diner Baby Driver
However, it seems that Bo's Diner was entirely filmed in an old Denny's (now an empty place called Uncle Chucky's Diner), in Forest Park.

Atlas of Wonders tracked down this location thanks to a comment below: If you plug 5116 GA-85 in Forest Park into Google Maps and move the time back to March 2016, you'll see an abandoned building magically become Bo's.

Can you help to improve this article about the shooting locations of Baby Driver? To complete and correct this report, any feedback, info, or images that you may have are more than welcome, thank you!

  1. I thought it looked like 2071 N Druid Hills Rd NE, Brookhaven, GA 30329

    It used to be a diner but I'm not sure when the mcdonalds replaced it

    1. Looking at Google Maps, there was a Diner at this location in 2012, but it's a McDo at least since 2014. Thanks anyway!

    2. The restaurant is located in new York in queens

    3. Umm, a more specific location, please?

  2. majestic diner, @ highland and ponce

  3. Actually, Bo's diner is an old Denny's at 5116 GA-85 in Forest Park. If you plug it into Google Maps and move the time back to March 2016 you'll see an abandoned building magically become Bo's.

    1. Amazing, thanks for your magic :]

    2. You're welcome. However, I believe the interior scenes were filmed there too. Take a look....the interior of the Majestic Diner is completely different......counter color, seat colors, lights. However, if you look at the movie scene, the windows are rounded at each end....then look at the google map image of Bo's...same rounded windows. I'm guessing it was all filmed there.

    3. I think you are right, the Majestic has many elements that match the diner of the movie, but some other details are too different (windows, ceiling...).

  4. The car chase with a truck was not filmed near the Jackson Street bridge at the Freedom Parkway. That scene was filmed on the Buford Hwy. Connector southbound (GA-13), just south of the MARTA-rail flyover bridge. Throw 33.800914, -84.387769 into Google Maps & then go to streetview in the direction of will match the pic that you posted.

    Plus, the picture of the red Subaru ? That is the intersection of Ted Turner Drive & Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. Throw 33.753411, -84.394902 into Google Maps & then go to will match the pic that you posted.

    1. Image 3 is at Georgia State University.

  5. Click around in street view I managed to get a shot of them putting up the signs.,-84.4026021,3a,32.5y,98.59h,83.39t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sDTkmJELpsgg7OONy25mm3w!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en-GB

  6. Image 2 is Georgia State University as well.
