Virginia Beach is not your regular beach town. Our coastal city has plenty to offer beyond its beautiful coastline and distinct beaches, including a downtown hub, located just uptown at the Virginia Beach Town Center.
Located in the heart of Virginia Beach, Town Center (as the locals call it) is a walkable destination in and of itself, with a vast offering of dining, shopping and entertainment options in an al-fresco setting that feels equal parts cosmopolitan and coastal.
Whether you’re looking for a fun family day out away from the sand or planning a romantic evening with dinner, drinks and a show, the Virginia Beach Town Center delivers on experiences that’ll keep you coming back – and rediscovering Virginia Beach on every visit.
Whether you’re window-shopping or in need of some major retail therapy, Town Center abounds with high-end shopping options from some of your favorite brands for women’s and men’s fashion, gifts, eyewear, books, art and much more. Explore local gems like Commonwealth and beloved favorites include Anthropologie, Barnes & Nobles, Brooks Brothers, Bluemercury, Free People, Madewell, Nike, West Elm, Pottery Barn, Williams-Sonoma and so many more.
Craving Italian, Mexican or Southern fare? No matter what your taste buds are asking for, Town Center has you covered with delectable dining options for every palate and budget. Enjoy a casual lunch at California Pizza Kitchen, Lamia’s Crepes, Shake Shack or Quirks, or splurge in an unforgettable dining experience at Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Zushi Japanese Bistro or Bravo Italian Kitchen. Choose from tried-and-true favorites like The Cheesecake Factory, Cantina Laredo and P.F. Chang’s, or dive into regional flavors at Tupelo Honey or Benny’s.
And of course, because it’s always 5 o’clock somewhere, there are plenty of options for handcrafted cocktails, craft beers and wine, too, thanks to spots like Three Notch’d Brewing Co., Twist Martini Bar & Associates and Vice Bar, just to name a few. Just be sure to save plenty of room for treats too. Sweet treats and hot coffee abound at Town Center Cold Pressed, The Royal Chocolate and Macaron Tart.
The fun never ends at Town Center – seriously! Year-round events include outdoor concerts, an annual Restaurant Week, wine-and-beer festivals and Last Night on the Town, Town Center’s own New Year’s Eve festivities. Events take place almost every night of the week, so you’ll definitely want to keep an eye on the Town Center Events Calendar.
Not to mention, there are plenty of entertainment venues to enjoy, too! Catch a late-night comedy show at The Funny Bone Comedy Club or spend the night playing games, bowling or go-karting at Apex Entertainment. Join friends for a painting class at Muse Paintbar or take in a performance at the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts or the Zeiders American Dream Theater.
