Favorite Watering Holes/ Breweries
These are my favorite places to hang out and let it all out with the best bartenders and libations in town.
The Jasper // Carytown
If you want a proper drink you go to a proper place. Dark and sexy with a professional staff, you’ll find yourself carefully weighing your concoction intake. Excellent spirit collection. This is for sipping people.
Cask Cafe // The Fan
Where do I go to relax, meet new people, and enjoy a plethora of Craft Ales? If you want a real pub experience go here, order the Billy Pie or enjoy Cheese and Sausage plates. Serving Beer and Wine only, but making up for it in personality. Don’t miss the pop ups here, you’ll be missing out on some amazing eats.
McCormack's Whisky & Big Whisky Grill // The Fan // West End
Oh you like Rye you say? Maybe you’re mind is still on that Scotland trip? No worries, this place will serve you some of the best whisky in town and will also give you an informative chat on its stock.
La Milpa // N. Chesterfield // Mexican
I’ve always loved this 24 hour Mexican restaurant equipped with its own market. Authentically delicious!
Penny Lane Pub // Downtown
If it’s the pitch you’re looking for along with the sounds of The Beatles, you’ve arrived. Put your jersey on, you’ll love this perfectly placed pub for an after work pint or spectating a match.
Rosie Connolly's Pub // Shockoe Bottom
Keeping it in the family, Tommy Goulding will always be the key to my bartending heart. Tommy is an institution, friendly and with daughter Helen at his side, you’ll enjoy a stout with these scousers.
The Roosevelt // Church Hill // Southern Fusion
The food is good, but the cocktails are fantastic. Go in, sit at the bar, enjoy some small plates, and take in the Southern accents.
Ardent Craft Ales // Scott’s Addition
My favorite brewery in atmosphere and beers. If you like IPAs and a variety of Craft styles, this is your spot. Fantastic beer garden and great location for your special events.
Triple Crossing // Downtown// Fulton
With two locations with different feels, I prefer the Fulton location for its woodfire pizzas and outdoor seating.
The Veil // Scott’s Addition
I refer to The Veil as the sexy hip brewery. A good place to take a date at night and top shelf craft beers. Get there early on their dry can releases or expect to wait in line.
Champion Brewing // Downtown
I like this brewery for the pool tables, pinball machines, and bachata nights! A unique spot for an after work brewski.
Reservoir Distillery // Scott’s Addition
We’re a Southern town with Southern tastes, of course we have locally sourced whisky. Their collaborations are top shelf and the tasting room is inviting. Tasting tours are available for large groups.
Final Gravity // Lakeside
This place is just a comfortable place to hang out and play darts. Beers are good and the staff is friendly. Great place to have an event. Nice patio out front! Pop in next door and get all your home brew supplies at Original Gravity.
