Live music plays most nights in the first floor bar of this historic Shockoe Slip warehouse restaurant. The basement club is alive with music and dancers and the top two floors offer dining in a delightful atmosphere. Lovely antiques including an elaborate iron elevator, stained glass and 19th Century tobacco advertisements fill this entertainment complex. The dinner menu includes prime rib and other scrumptious entrees.
Food is expensive and not that great when compared to other unique restaurants in Richmond. Expect to pay around $100 for two people for dinner. (Thats on the low end) Tobacco Co. charges 4-5 star prices for 2-3 star food. You have to ask for bread if you want more, because it is not company policy to replenish the bread basket, unless the customer asks. This is not a good restaurant to get the true feel for the unique qualities of Richmond. If you want upscale dining, go to Lemaire's at the Jefferson Hotel or La Petit France on Broad St.
