Eat

Drink

Downtown Hampton - During the summer months every Saturday night they close off Queen Street for "Block Party." With live bands, four bars, inflatables for children, beer trucks serving Bud, Bud Light, and Mich Ultra, and other interesting treats like Smirnoff Ice Slushies and Winearitas you can't lose!

Power Plant - The strange but memorable name given to the shopping center just down Pine Chapel Road, one block from the Coliseum. McFaddens, Saddle Ridge and Saddle Ridge's more live music oriented Cheyenne’s all share a block of store front right not to Cold Stone Creamery. Joe's Crab Shack and Lonestar Steakhouse and Saloon also rest in this shopping center if you wanted to grab a few drinks out with dinner before you head over to the bars. There are always plenty of taxi cabs and people to meet.

Tidemill Sports Bar - A little known hole in the wall (unless you're a local) karaoke and sports bar off of Armistead. Heading away from Mercury Blvd you pass the Hampton Roads Center Parkway on your left and it's in the next shopping center on your right. Plenty of parking and fun people. If you like pool, darts, or watching the game on a big screen - this is the place to be.
