Homes in this area come in a wide range of prices, styles, and sizes.

Where to Live

Shockoe Bottom is located southwest of Church Hill and directly east of Downtown. It follows the curve of the James River, giving nearly all of the homes some sort of water view. However, there isn't much in way of actual housing. The southern part of the community is primarily industrial and manufacturing buildings. Due to this, nearly all of the housing is located in the northwest portion of the neighborhood. Some new condos have popped up between Dock Street and East Main Street. Farther back along East Franklin Street and East Grace Street there are more options, although most of these are mixed-use developments where the apartments and condos are located on the top level. For anyone looking to call Shockoe Bottom home, this is probably the area where they'll settle.

Where to Eat

Most of the restaurants are located in the northwestern portion of the neighborhood. Havana 59 is a popular Cuban restaurant that is also consistently favorably reviewed. The Addis Restaurant and River City Diner are both located within the same block, so there are plenty of eating options right in this small area. Right past I-95 are a few other restaurants, including some national chains and local seafood spots.

What You'll See

This area is a favorite among working professionals. Some residents live towards the northern edge of the community, but these apartments and condos just don't have much in way of space and there is no real outdoor area to play in the neighborhood (although Jefferson Park is just a block to the north). Industrialized work takes place to the south so expect to see mostly refurbished and still operating factories, but there isn't any real residential area in this part of Shockoe. Residents will also see a good amount of tourists coming in to take part in the boat cruises and tours.

Friday Night Fun

Some shows take place at The Canal Club, which is a nice spot for local theater. Bottoms Up Pizza is across the street and a perfect post-show meal. The Hard Shell Downtown is seafood tavern a few blocks to the west and serves up a great selection of drinks. For a more low-key evening, check out some of the neighborhood's galleries.

The Perfect Sunday

Walking along Main Street is popular for both locals and tourists. Taking in the Virginia Capital Trail that runs along Dock Street is popular too. There are a handful of museums in the neighborhood, including the Virginia Holocaust Museum and The Edgar Allen Poe Museum. Locals close out the week with a leisurely stroll through Libby Hill Park, one of the earliest city parks that provides sweeping views of the city.
