Charlottesville Happy Hour + Events
Lively Charlottesville is our muse: vibrant and thriving, throughout the school year and beyond. Our calendar of happenings is similarly diverse, and we invite you to join us any time – for a seasonal menu, a thoughtful special, or a one-of-a-kind event that you’ll remember for years to come. (“I guess you had to be there.”)
