Norfolk’s downtown Hilton hotel is home to Saltine, Varia and Grain. They all serve happy hour, have varying menus and are housed on different floors throughout the hotel – offering up various views of the city. Grain is Norfolk’s only rooftop beer garden and has sweeping views of the Elizabeth River and downtown. Varia, a modern Italian restaurant, boasts a 200-plus bottle wine list and a 24-bottle cruvinet (wine preserving and dispensing system). Lastly, Saltine offers a chic, airy space for diners to enjoy some of the finest locally sourced seafood that Norfolk has to offer. These three pillar restaurants sit at the heart of our downtown business district which means happy hour is extremely popular for all those nine-to-fivers.
