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 seven distinct commercial “villages” alternating with short, walkable blocks of charming bungalow homes.

Sometimes informally referred to as “The Highlands” and often abbreviate “Va-Hi””, the.neighborhood’s name derives from the intersection of Virginia and Highland Avenues. Like many of Atlanta’s first suburbs, Virginia-Highland developed along the trolley lines of the Atlanta Street Railway Company, which opened this area to development in 1890. Atkins Park was one of the first portions of Virginia-HIghland developed, conceived in 1908 and completed in 1912. Today, in addition to several thousand homes, Virginia-Highland boasts dozens of restaurants, pubs, and shops, and hosts its own festival, Summerfest, the first weekend of June each year.

Locals and tourists alike mingle for brunch at charming sidewalk cafes, cocktails at lively night 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 nightclub, an opening-night party at an art gallery or a gathering of fascinating people at one of the coffeehouses.

Virginia Highland is acclaimed for its diverse and unique shopping. Trend-setting 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, gelatos, unique contemporary, antique or traditional furniture, do-it-yourself pottery, full-service day spas, fashionable salons – all are just a few of the extensive retail offerings.

Virginia Highland is located east of Midtown, west of Druid Hills, north of Poncey-Highland and south of Morningside.
