Popkin Tavern

Since 1909, The Popkin Building at 123 W. Broad has served Richmond as a furniture showroom.  Part of Furniture Row, the Popkin building was home to Popkin Furniture from 1968 until 2004. Recently, the building underwent a transformation to 18 luxury apartments and Popkin Tavern on the first floor. Popkin Tavern is Richmond’s first Gastro Pub. Popkin Tavern is a great place to relax with good food in a great environment.  One of the few truly unique places left in Richmond, they have private party areas, a huge dining and bar area, and several lounge spaces.  With 18 beers on tap, 24 craft beer lines, an eclectic wine list, specialty cocktails and a constantly changing seasonal menu.


Upscale, yet casual seafood restaurant nestled in the historic Grace St. corridor of downtown Richmond, serving up seasonal dishes, craft beers, diverse wine, signature cocktails, and an enormous raw bar focusing on their very own oyster farms (ie, Rappahannock Oyster Co.). Rappahannock has assembled incredible talent to revolutionize the concept of farm to table.
