The area is wonderful and pedestrian friendly. The restaurants are really good, The atmosphere is bohemian in my opinion, very liberal, open-minded and they have a large gay population. The parking can be tricky, as well as a series of one-way streets and single lane...More

I’ve lived here for 42 years and the only constants are Atkins Park, where in the late 70’s the house wine was MD 20/20, Moe’ and Joe’s hasn’t changed a bit, and Intown Hardware, only now it smells like Bed Bath and Beyond. Parking used...More

This is a very trendy but overpriced neighborhood. Some of the restaurants have excellent reputations but they are much more expensive than those of equal quality in less popular areas. The traffic is bad and parking is not easy. If you are 22-38 years old...More

My children live in Virginia-Highland and I would retire there in a heartbeat. Unique restaurants, pubs, and retail shops along with the bungalow style homes make up the character of this charming downtown neighborhood.

Any Casual Midweek Music Hangouts? (9 Replies)
Hello everybody! My ladyfriend and I will be visiting Atlanta next week 12/27-12-29 and I wanted to find a casual spot for us to enjoy listening and maybe dancing to some music. You could say we're a fortysomething couple with thirtysomething tastes. Jazz, R&B, acoustic, chillout or even spoken word would all be fun for us. We're staying in Dunwoody but would be willing to travel to Buckhead, Midtown, Virginia-Highland, or Little Five Points. Thanks in advance for any ideas! :)

Tony, one place I know of personally that might fit the bill (others may know much more) is The Blue Room in Buckhead. It's in the Peachtree Battle shopping center. If you're a Hammond 3B enthusiast, this is the place for you, from what I'm told. I don't know if they have dancing, but I've heard good things about it. Take a look at www.atlantablueroom.com. I think they have a schedule of who is playing on the site. Churchill Grounds next to the Fox Theater on Peachtree Street in...More

Buckhead vs Atlantic Station (8 Replies)
We are coming to Atlanta in May for a few days and have been offered a very good rental at an area called Atlantic Station. I believe it is a newly developed area. We were originally planning to stay in Buckhead and will have a car. Can anyone tell me anything about Atlantic Station i.e. is the development still under construction, it it a safe area, is it a nice area with nice facilities etc. Anything you could pass on to a tourist from Australia would be very helpful. I have previously...More

Atlantic Station is nice. It has lots of restaurants, bars and stores. I think I would rather stay in Atlantic Station over Buckhead because you don't have to drive, you can walk around. It is a relatively safe area. There is some construction, but a lot of it is finished. nothing that will be a problem. There is a big grocery store, cinema, and I think a bowling alley. I could be wrong about the bowling alley. If you have a car it is right off the highway and really easy to get to other...More
