Dancing Under the Stars

A new rooftop event space will open in 2016.

One thing Richmond lacks — rooftop bars. Quirk Hotel has one slated and so does the Hofheimer Building at 2816 W. Broad Street, the old Adams Camera space. You may remember that this past year Peter Chang disclosed plans to open another of his restaurants in the building in 2016.

The rooftop space won’t be a bar — exactly. Snipes Properties, which owns the building, just announced that Mosaic Catering and Events will manage the rooftop, and along with a larger space on the second floor and a small art gallery, the whole shebang will be available for weddings, parties and other events. Mosaic can handle any catering but the company won’t restrict folks to their services.

It’s a spectacular view, and Snipes said in a press release that the planning and construction process took over a year, and received zoning approval from City Council in November. Both Chang’s restaurant and the event space will open in the spring.
