“The center of downtown nightlife”

Located on Charlottesville's bustling historic downtown pedestrian mall, Rapture Restaurant and Night Club is the center of downtown nightlife and a Charlottesville institution. To begin with, there’s the food. Rapture’s cuisine not only features local ingredients, but local flavor as well: chef Chris Humphrey specializes in Southern Cookin’, playfully riffing on the cuisine of his Virginia upbringing by bringing his extensive French culinary and haute cuisine experience to bear on familiar southern classics. The resultant creole, soul, and low country gourmet dishes are made even more delicious by Chef’s use of fine ingredients and local sources.  Round out your delicious Southern meal with a craft beer from our formidable selection, which includes rare and specialty items and an impressive draft selection, or with a bottle of wine from our extensive cellar, and you will have no doubt why Rapture has remained a popular destination for well over a decade. But there’s even more to enjoy. Rapture’s swank bar and billiards room make it the place to gather and meet. Antique details and wrought iron work reminiscent of old New Orleans give the space warmth; excellent service provided by an award-winning staff make for a thoroughly enjoyable experience. And of course there’s R2, the chic Dance Club with architectural elegance, mod furnishings, and state-of-the-art lights, sound, and video. With the best local, regional, and national DJs spinning a variety of styles, free entrance and drink specials for the early crowd, it’s no wonder this is the place where Charlottesville’s hip, young professionals go to get their groove on.

Great place for excellent food, drinks, and billiards. Too loud not to love.
