C & O
The bottom of C & O is a cool bar. The have great cocktails and this is one of the oldest restaurants and bars in Charlottesville.
Need reservation. Food is to die for. Sit in outside space if you can. Magical little courtyard. Easy walk, right off Downtown Mall.
This is a Charlottesville tradition. White table cloth restaurant upstairs, old school, casual bar (where you can dine) in the basement. Super charming, good food. French.
