Historic Virginia-Highland is Atlanta’s most popular neighborhood for shopping, dining, relaxing, and nightlife.
Developed in the early 1900’s, Virginia-Highland, or “VaHi” as it is known by local residents, consists of four distinct commercial “villages” connected by short, walkable blocks lined with charming bungalow homes. The neighborhood’s name derives from the intersection of Virginia and Highland Avenues and has the feel of a small town within the heart of the city. Locals and tourists alike mingle for brunch at charming sidewalk cafes, meals and drinks on comfortable patios and terraces, and cocktails at lively night spots. Discovering the unexpected is part of the attraction where you may find world- famous musical entertainment at a tiny nightclub, a viewing party at a recording studio, or a gathering of fascinating people at one of the area coffeehouses.
