From Richmond BizSense:
The operators of a sprawling residential estate-turned-event venue – colloquially referred to as the “castle in Goochland” – are branching out into Short Pump.
Dover Hall Experiences, the management side of the 33,000-square-foot Dover Hall estate at 1500 Manakin Road, are launching Bartizan, a new event venue, restaurant and bar in West Broad Village.
Bartizan is slated to open this fall in two adjoining storefronts currently occupied by The Wine Loft and Spirited Art.
It’s modeled as an offshoot of what’s offered at Dover Hall, with the Bartizan name designed to describe a smaller, more intimate, space extending from a castle for an elevated entertainment experience — a play on “bartizan’s” original definition for a small elevated turret jutting out from a castle wall.
