Historic Virginia Highland is Atlanta’s most popular neighborhood for shopping, dining, and nightlife. Developed in the early 1900’s, it consists of seven district commercial “villages” alternating with short, walkable blocks of charming bungalow homes. The neighborhood’s name derives from the intersection of Virginia Highland and Highland Avenues.
Locals and tourists alike mingle for brunch at charming sidewalk cafes, cocktails at lively night spots, and innovative cuisine at progressive restaurants and bistros. There is world-famous musical entertainment at a tiny jazz club.
Virginia Highland is acclaimed for its diverse and unique shopping. Trend-setting apparel, antiques, folk and pop art, books, gourmet kitchens, gelato, fresh flowers, and full-service day spas and salons all are just a few of the extensive retail offerings.
