Tobacco Company, Richmond
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 the drink specials. $1 beers and hi-balls (1 Mixer/1 Liquor).
Although the bar can be tough to get to so try and find a small table where you can get waiting service. Order several drinks at a time for your table, and just tell the waitrer(ess) to keep-em-coming, as he or she will only come around ever 20 minutes or so. The happy hour lasts from 9-10 so make the most of it, then move on.
If you are more into an upscale experience, head upstairs. This area will be filled with older guests who enjoy a good drink and cigar.
Wherever you end up, you'll have a splendid time at the Tobacco Company.
