Cozy cobblestone vibes and European charm with farm-to-table eats in vibrant Richmond
Virginia is for Lovers, and the Berkeley Hotel — with cherry accents, oriental-style carpeting and leather-clad lounges — sets the mood. Named after Berkeley Castle in England, the intimate 55-room hotel brings a bit of European elegance to Virginia’s cobblestone district. The hotel’s farm-to-table dining room offers an upscale spot to anchor an evening, and the adjacent lounge’s light fare and libations make for a warm return after a night out. Guest rooms take a page out of Richmond’s old-time atmosphere blending coziness (read: Frette linens and terrycloth robes) with all the trimmings of a modern boutique hotel.
In the Area
Nestled on Cary Street a few steps from the capitol building, the Berkeley’s neighborhood was once known for groundbreaking industry. Today, posh bistros and trendy boutiques have replaced the tobacco factories, but cobblestone streets and historic facades remain. Walk-and-talk through 12 acres of landscaping at Capitol Square, past Jefferson-designed buildings and some of America’s earliest architecture. Admire Richmond’s workingman past at the Tobacco Company Restaurant over glazed pork tenderloin with whipped sweet potatoes. Wind things down at C’est le Vin, a wine bar and art gallery, for globally sourced vino and visuals.
