Fat Dragon

Private Room

Capacity: Up to 45 guests

Fat Dragon Chinese Kitchen and Bar is a modern, sustainable interpretation of classic Cantonese and multi-regional Chinese cuisine. What this means is that everything from ingredients to materials and practices follows a commitment to the health of diners as well as the planet.

Wild Ginger

Private Dining Room

Capacity: Anywhere from 24-100 guests

Wild Ginger offers a uniquely flavorful Asian-influenced cuisine and an extraordinary selection of fine wines in a beautiful contemporary setting. You and your guests will enjoy the evening in their private room and eating the finest sushi. 


The Snug

Capacity: Up to 100 guests

If you're looking for a classic Irish pub atmosphere for your event, Keagan's all but transports you to the river dancing country. It's a great place to grab a pint; it's an even better place to grab a pint together.

Capital Ale House

Downtown Event Space and Music Hall

Capacity: Up to 200 guests, with smaller rooms available

Capital Ale House is known throughout Richmond as a mecca for all things craft and local beer, as they have almost 200 on tap. If you and your guests wouldn't be caught ordering a bud light at the bar, this may just be the place for you.

The Hard Shell Brigade

The Fireplace Room

Capacity: Over 200, with smaller rooms available

With multiple "Best Seafood Restaurant" awards under its belt, The Hard Shell is Richmond's go-to for high quality seafood. Parties large and small can be held in this cozy spot.

Chez Foushee

Dining Room

Capacity: Up to 90 guests

Patrons of Chez Foushee are at first impressed by the mesmerizing and classic architecture of the restaurant, but leave wholly satisfied by the French/Creole cuisine. Transport your guests back in time without leaving the heart of the city.

Wong Gonzalez

Private Upstairs Room (Beauty & Grace)

Capacity: Up to 50 guests

Wong Gonzalez isn’t quite like any place you have been before. A concept born in the hawker stalls of Malaysia’s bustling town centers where all the wonderful and dynamic flavors of South East Asia are found and then raised in the kitchens of small Mexican towns full of rustic culture and mouthwatering aromas. Wong Gonzalez is a rousing and exciting blending of Asian and Latin cuisines. The best of both worlds brought together but never forgetting the sanctity of either. Not just Chinese… not just Mexican.  We like to call it affectionately and playfully Mexinese.

The Wine Loft

The Wine Loft Downstairs

Capacity: Up to 200 guests

A posh but relaxed atmosphere, the Wine Loft offers exciting and sophisticated wine bar with a selection of over 85 wines by the glass and over 250 wines by the bottle, as well as a full complement of beer and mixed drinks. The Wine Loft regularly hosts corporate events for many Richmond-based companies including Capital One, Altria, Affinion Group, Ernst & Young and Charles Schwab. In addition, the venue regularly hosts birthday parties, weddings, receptions and showers.
