DARWIN’S BURGERS AND BLUES Darwin’s Burgers is not big and it is not glitzy. It’s a little old house bursting with good food and fantastic blues music. Founded in 1995, it was the home of the blues in Atlanta. After an economic stumble in the early years of the 21st century, Lindsay Wine and Jonathon Akin purchased the venue in 2011, invested time and money, and brought the club back to its original juke joint popularity. Today, Darwin’s hosts the best local bands and the best touring acts coming through Atlanta, and solo/duo winner at the 2013 International Blues Challenge, Little G Weevil, plays monthly. The blues jams during the week attract the best local musicians and allow new players to be heard. Because of the mix of young musicians and older established groups, the club attracts all ages. Thanks to the determination and dedication of one young couple, their friends and staff, and a lot of people who love Darwin’s, the place looks set to continue to keep the blues alive in Metro Atlanta for many years to come!
