Casa Del Barco, F.W. Sullivan’s and the Boathouse are mentioned as well.
The story doesn’t go into too much detail but it’s nice to see press about the area that doesn’t involve baseball. The New York Post article covers Canal Walk, Shockoe and Rocketts Landing.
The Slip is where you’ll find swanky boutiques like the bespoke selvedge retailer Shockoe Denim, where jeans can run as high as $400, and the custom men’s shirt store Ledbury. Though not in the least bit new, The Tobacco Company, a combo resto/bar/music venue, is a 30-year-old neighborhood stalwart that’s also worth a visit. Head a few blocks east to Shockoe Bottom to check out one of the city’s most colorful drinking spots: The Halligan Bar & Grill is distinguished by its firefighter decor — including a full-size fire engine behind the bar that’s been converted into a keg dispenser. It’s also where the 17th Street Market holds court Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, selling fresh produce, handmade goods and antiques.
