Get there early, get your seats, and get ready to hear some great blues music. Big Bill and The Shadows are playing when you visit, I hope. Either way, this "dive" brings the best to the city. Word of caution for the discerning foodies: eat...More

When here whilst visiting friends who live in atlanta. The bar is quite small but the atmosphere is amasing! Sweet betty and the shadows were playing. The lady's voice was fantastic. Well worth a visit for the experience

Went on a Saturday night after the band started. I was able to get the last seat at the bar. Sandra Hall and The Shadows were great. The bartender was very friendly and attentive. Prices were also very reasonable. I can't wait to go back!

Bottom line up front, this is an amazing bar. If you like live Blues, good drinks, and a friendly atmosphere get to Blind Willie's. I believe they have live music almost every night they are open. We were there on the last Friday in February...More

My husband and I decided to listen to some jazz for Valentine’s day but decided to go on a Saturday instead of on a Sunday. We choose Blind Willie’s because it seemed like it had a more open area and the prices were reasonable. We...More
