Virginia Nightlife

  • The Downtown Party District

    Richmond Nightlife

    Until recently, prevailing flood waters made restoration of this historic district difficult. The completion of a multi-million dollar flood wall has spurred dramatic redevelopment of this charming neighborhood. Now one of Richmond's hottest night spots, Shockoe Bottom features some of the area's most sought after restaurants and nightclubs. The...

  • Bahama Joe's

    Richmond Nightlife

    John from Atlanta and I'm looking for the 4 ladys that gave me a ride to my hotel Friday at closing time 12/15/06. Please email me at atl1john@yahoo.com Don't count on any help from the club finding a cab. I was stuck there and 4 very nice ladys gave me a ride to my hotel, I was visiting from Atlanta. The music was good, I had a great time at the...

  • Tobacco Company

    Richmond Nightlife

    After Friday Cheers (see "TGIF" tip) join the young cowd and head to the basement of the Tabocco Company. The line forms quickly, and there is an expectation of nice dress, Khakis and a Polo, or button up would be plenty. Again, women can wear whatever they want, so no worries there. The great thing about the Tobacco Company on Friday night are...

  • Byrd Theatre

    Richmond Nightlife

    The Byrd Theatre in Carytown was built in the 1920s. The movie house still has its original red velvet drapes, crystal chandelier and an organ that rises out of the stage. The only bummer is that the seats are small and there isn't much leg room but the ambience of this old-time movie house makes it worth that minor inconvenience. The Byrd shows...

  • Tiki Bob's

    Richmond Nightlife

    Tiki Bob's is probably the nicest night club in downtown Richmond. On Wednesday nights, David and I along with a few other friends go down here to hang out and dance with some of the VCU locals. This is a really neat place to go because it is in the heart of Shockoe Bottom and literally everyone is down there. On Wednesday nights the club is really...

  • Emilio's Tapas Bar

    Richmond Nightlife

    Emilio's is a very good restaurant as mentioned in the restaurant tip, but it a night spot in its own right. They have a nightclub every night at 10:30pm to 2am. Every night is different with jazz, blues, karaoke, reggae, ritmo, Latin...even bluegrass, and the list of live music, as well as the beat, goes on. When Lee and I happened upon this...

  • Sin é

    Richmond Nightlife

    Siné is a big Irish Pub located right in the heart of Richmond's Shockoe Slip area. They have Irish beer, live music, and lots of people. They also have a good menu (better than the menu at most Irish Pubs in Ireland) with pub food, sandwiches, and a variety of appetizers. Definitely a good spot in Richmond. Another great feature, weather...

  • Tap House Grill

    Richmond Nightlife

    The Tap House Grill is the informal pub area of the Richbrau Brewing Company restaurant in historic Shockoe Slip. Fridays features live music by Gypsy Roots which features the sounds of the Quintette of the Hot Club of France, i.e., Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grapelli, et. al. The band is very good at what they do and if you're not familiar with...

  • Fahrenheit

    Richmond Nightlife

    Fahrenheit This club thinks that it brings a piece of New York's Lower East Side to Richmond. Actually it's just a kinda dirty looking club filled with chunkers dancing in cages and high school kids sneaking out.

  • The Dance Space

    Richmond Nightlife

    The Dance Space is a friendly and inviting place to dance! Every Saturday (except the rare 5th Saturday) is a swing dance. DJs play tunes to do lindy hop, east coast swing, charleston, balboa, and other swing era dances. There is a beginner lesson from 7:30-8:30pm that is free with admission to the dance. Dancers of a wide range of ages come to...

  • Carpenter Center for the Performing Arts

    Richmond Nightlife

    The Carpenter Center is a place where you go to a play or some fancy classical concert. Sometimes they have really GOOD entertainment. One time, I went to see (columnist, author and comedian) Lewis Grizzard do a live performance. Tragically, it was 6 months before he died. It depends on the event. For the theatre, opera, or some concert, I'm...

  • The Landmark Theater

    Richmond Nightlife

    The building's name drew criticism because it looks almost exactly like a Moslem temple. In the 1990s, it had to change its name to the Landmark Theater after much controversy. It was built in the 1920s and took 2 years to build. Imported tile, curtains and paintings were imported from all over and suggest a Middle Eastern theme. There are more...

  • Virginia Beach Nightlife

    This place is a happening place. Bars, restaurants, souvenier shops, haunted houses, and NUMEROUS motels are all along this stretch of land. Sorry for not having a picture...my time here was really demanding, so I never got to take many pics.

  • In Virginian bed :-)

    I spent my Virginian evenings/nights mostly either driving a car (usually up to 11-12 pm) to reach destination for the next day visit or in a hotel room with my wife, Urszula (matcrazy0). As you can see in my picture the most comfortable Virginian bed was in Super 8 Motel in Harrisonburg (western Virginia). In Virginia and generally in the USA...

  • Night photography of architecture

    Every experienced photographer has to admit that the most interesting photographs are not those taken on clear, sunny day but at night, at sunset/sunrise and even during worse weather (fog). In October and November days are short thus I often drove through Virginian old towns and cities at night. I could easily find quite many beautiful historical...

  • Night views over the Pentagon

    In Arlington I stayed in Sheraton National hotel which stands alone as the tallest building in this area. The night views over the Pentagon and Washington, DC are spectacular. I am sure you watched it on TV as the hotel was occupied by journalists after terrorist attack over the Pentagon as the only hotel with such view. Well, you have to take...

  • Meet other VT-ers! :-)

    Arlington in Northern Virginia is just across the Potomac River from Washington, DC. Its part called Crystal City is full of hotels and restaurants mostly less expensive than in U.S. capital and is connected by very convenient metro with Washington, DC - a must see for every U.S. citizen. It makes Crystal City the most convinient location for...

  • Beach St. USA

    In Virginia Beach, each night (in summer), along Atlantic Ave, there is the Beach St. USA, a nightly show of music and magic tricks by performers paid by the city of Virginia Beach. This mainly a lure for tourists, but really isn't that bad of a place; besides shopping and watching local performers, you can also sometimes see a show of fireworks....

  • Docks at night

    These boats were perfect, clean, running and ready to go out to sea for the night. This guy had money in his fleet, all the latest goodies. they were maintained really well.

  • A Marina at Night!

    Sittin' on the dock of the bay watchin' the tide roll in! There's nothing like being at a marina at sunset for some great shots! It's so peaceful, the birds flying & singing, the sound of the water hitting the dock and watchin' the sun set ( with a camera of course )!

Usually the music is good, if you are into alternative music.The Bamboo Cafe, a great bar with great food and a sometimes very weird mix of people (very old to just the legal limit). The Bamboo can...

    If you want to party the night away and wake up with a hangover, go to a club in Richmond or Washington, D.C. If you want to have fun, go to a bluegrass concert!!!! They're never hard to find in the Valley - see Dr. Ralph Stanley, who hails from southwest Virginia, or any of the other purveyors of that old-time, high and lonesome sound. Now that's...

    The Greenleafe Cafe, WilliamsburgThe best of a handful of bars in the tourist/college town caters to William & Mary students. Uncomfortably packed on weekends, but Sunday night is 'mug night' where you can fill up your greenleafe mug (about 2.5 pints) for $3-5. Casual student type dress. If you're that kind of guy, wear your J Crew and a dirty...
