This Cuban-themed restaurant somehow achieves both a lively and romantic atmosphere. At brunch, you can watch the Farmers Market as you dine on the outdoor deck. If you want a spot outside, be sure to make a reservation. The menu is seafood heavy, but those who do not enjoy things fishy will love the shredded pork over rice with plantains. It is one of the least expensive and most delicious items offered. Havana has one of the largest drink selections in the city, including homemade margaritas. Havana '59 opens its doors to guests from 4:30 p.m., all days of the week.
GWAR is a famous heavy metal band that originated in Richmond and has opened this bar in collaboration with a veteran restaurateur. The theme bar is equal parts funky and gory as the decor includes fake blood on the floor and walls, and death metal music plays in the background. Posters, mementos and other paraphernalia related to the band line the walls, and even the menu items bear unique names based on the GWAR theme. Try the Blood Red Ale with the Fried Artichoke Sandwich and Avocado & Smoked Fish Salad. The bar is packed with metal music aficionados on Metal Mondays, movie nights and Punk and Rock DJ nights.
Fallout RVA is not your average bar and dance club in Richmond. It is a private adult alternative club that revolves around a goth fetish theme. There is live music and almost every night has its own event going on - from body painting to comedians and rope biting, there is never a dull moment at Fallout.
