Questions..Confused…Need some Help???

Aren’t you Belle & James?

Not anymore! We run a southern kitchen now under the guidance of Chef Ro Alrahim. Same great space, new direction that focuses on our southern roots, local foods and fresh, accessible dishes. Check out our fried chicken sampler! Or the great vegan options! Our happy hour is still one of the best in town.

Do you take reservations?

We encourage reservations for large parties(over 8), our current menu can be found through the links above. Click here to make a reservation. The bar has open seating. If all bar seating is taken, please don’t hesitate to approach our hostess who will kindly seat you at a table.

Do you have happy hour?

YES! Come enjoy our craft cocktail specials [insert dates here]. We also have delicious cocktails for our non-drinking patrons.

Where are you located?

We’re at 700 East Main Street, Richmond VA. We have street level entry along with Hampton Inn Hotel access inside.

Do you offer valet parking?

We do not. There’s metered parking on Main Street and Hotel Parking on 7th Street. Our patrons also like to Uber or Lyft.

What about private parties?

We love private parties–especially with a month or so advance notice. Contact us at [email protected] We have space for up to 225 people and options for smaller parties as well.

Can you accommodate dietary restrictions or food preferences?


Do you have to be 21 or older to enter the bar?

Yes, unless it’s a really cute baby. Then we will require pictures too. Same goes for kittens and puppies. But, really, your kid (or pet) is going to hate it here. It’s adults acting like adults and only sometimes like children or animals.

Are you accessible to people with disabilities?

Yes, please let us know any access issues in advance for your reservation if you can or tell the door person. We have an elevator, ramps and an access-positive attitude toward our colleagues, friends and family with disabilities.
