Virginia Highland

Historic Virginia Highland is Atlanta's most popular neighborhood for shopping, dining and nightlife. Developed in the early 1900's, it consists of six distinct commercial "villages" alternating with short, walkable blocks of charming bungalow homes. The neighborhood's name derives from the intersection of Virginia and Highland Avenues.

Locals and tourists alike mingle for brunch at charming sidewalk caf?s, cocktails at lively nite spots, and innovative cuisine at progressive restaurants and bistros. Discovering the unexpected is part of the attraction where you may find world- famous musical entertainment at a tiny niteclub, an opening-night party at an art gallery or a gathering of fascinating people at one of the many coffeehouses.

Virginia Highland is acclaimed for its diverse and unique shopping. Trendsetting apparel, classic to kitschy antiques, folk and pop art, whimsical decorative accessories, natural linens, rare cigars, distinctive art books, gourmet kitchenwares, fine woodworking and gardening tools, unusual fresh flowers, fancy gelatos, do-it-yourself pottery, full-service day spas, fashionable salons ? all are just a few of the extensive retail offerings.
