Grab a Drink

Below are a few neat places to grab a drink if you are out and about on the Downtown Mall.

Commonwealth skybar

Located right on the Downtown Mall, the rooftop bar of the Commonwealth restaurant offers a nice place to enjoy the warm weather and views of the Mall below.

By far the coolest spot to get a craft cocktail in Charlottesville.  It has a speakeasy feel in that its entrance is marked only by a lantern hanging over the door in one of the Mall's side alleys, and the inside is adorned with lots of dark wood and leather sofas.  NOTE: It is small, so you should make a reservation even just for a drink (their food is delicious too... mostly small plates).

south street brewery

Very laid back, casual local brewery one short block off of the Mall.  They also have decent burgers and American food if you want to make it a lunch or casual dinner stop.


Brunch Spots
