The late-night denizens of Virginia-Highland (college kids in oxford shirts, midnight joggers, Audi drivers) would be unfamiliar to this place‚Äôs namesake. But the spirit of Blind Willie McTell remains alive and well behind these brick walls, where blues musicians‚ÄĒmany of them deep into old age‚ÄĒfind appreciative and knowledgeable audiences night after night. Get there early for a table. 828 North Highland Avenue, 404-873-2583, blindwilliesblues.com
