RICHMOND, Va. — The two-year development of Quirk Hotel was fittingly capped off this weekend with the opening of its rooftop bar.
The boutique hotel and art gallery at 201 W. Broad St. held a soft opening over the weekend for the two-terraced rooftop, which features a bar with food service, dozens of plush chairs and couches, and panoramic views of downtown Richmond.
The opening marks the completion of the 74-room hotel, which opened its first floors of rooms last September, along with its Maple & Pine restaurant. Its namesake art gallery followed soon after, but the rooftop has taken longer – it was previously scheduled to open last November.
The unveiling comes two years after work started to convert the former J.B. Mosby & Co. department store building into the hotel and gallery – a venture led by Ted and Katie Ukrop, who developed the project with Christian Kiniry of Bank Street Advisors. The building was constructed in 1916.
