Anchored by Atkins Park, Atlanta's oldest continuously licensed tavern, the Virginia-Highland Commercial District features over 40 local and small businesses on tree-lined streets nestled around several small neighborhood commercial nodes.

Thanks in part to the Virginia Highland District Association, a nonprofit promoting investment in the neighborhood, many new storefronts have opened in 2021. Check out the following:

Browse an extensive selection of non-fiction, fiction, children's books, as well as vinyl and merchandise. In an effort to build community, the shop displays local art and provides space for book signings, book clubs, and story times. They even collect and donate used books to local nonprofits. 

Kinship sells whole-animal butchered meats, in-season produce, and other ingredients from local farmers and food producers. The market also offers cheese, wine, and to-go breakfast and lunch sandwiches. They proudly serve Academy Coffee, known for unusual coffee and tea drinks.

PERC began roasting in 2010 at the old Starland Dairy in Savannah, GA. Check out signature beverages like the Good Times Latte with vanilla-lavender and habanero sugar.

Cake doughnuts, mixed fresh using high quality ingredients and hand rolled every morning! Offerings change with the seasons.

Named one of the best ice cream shops in America by Bon Appétit Magazine in 2009, the East Atlanta-based gourmet ice cream shop has opened its third location. Flavors include raspberry coke, butter pecan, spiced chai, ginger lavender, and chocolate cheesecake.

Get steamy with an infrared therapy session at Perspire. According to their website, treatment detoxes the body, burns calories, relaxes the mind, enhances immunity, eases pain, clears skin, and improves sleep.

Coming Soon! Pielands
Opening this fall, in the former Goin’ Coastal space, Pielands will serve whole pies, slices, salads, and Italian-style subs, along with beer and wine.
