Where to Drink around The Westin Richmond
Collected by Westin AFAR
Spend some time in Richmond and see Southern Culture flourishing alongside East coast style. Tradition gets a hip makeover as the city continues to both embrace its roots and find its place on the National scene. It’s a weird mix, but somehow Richmond makes it work.

The brand permeates the décor, beers, and happenings as well as the name at Strangeways Brewing. The primate perched on a barrel always oversees my visits to this realm of surprising but welcoming elements, where I come to drink their newest...

The VMFA is, well, something else. For a city the size of Richmond to have such an amazing art museum is kind of incredible, and for it to be free to the public is even better. In addition to the diverse permanent art collection spanning Egyptian...

Penny Lane is my favorite pub, by far. Local legend has it that pub owner Terry O'Neil worked as a bouncer for a club in Liverpool in the 60's, and kicked out John Lennon one night. Whether it's true or not, who knows, but it's one heck of a...

Tucked away in Shockoe Bottom between the seedy night clubs and trendy restaurants, you'll find a little hole-in-the-wall called Wonderland. It's the kind of place that seems a little too insane to be true, with a decor that could be considered a...

This Carytown eatery satisfies even the most massive of taco cravings. The dishes are served a la carte, either traditionally, or "gringo" style (which means, smothered with cheese and the usual fixin's). There are vegetarian options for the...
