Located on Charlottesville's bustling historic downtown pedestrian mall, rapture restaurant and night club is the center of downtown nightlife. In addition to its cuisine's hip blend of traditional southern style and high-end European and Asian dishes, its swank bar and billiards room is the place to gather and meet.
Antique details and wrought iron work reminiscent of old New Orleans give the space warmth; excellent service provided by an award-winning staff make for a thoroughly enjoyable experience. But what really sets Rapture apart is R2, the chic Dance Club with stunning architectural elegance, mod furnishings, and state-of-the-art lights, sound and video. With the best local, regional, and national DJs spinning a variety of styles, free entrance and drink specials for the early crowd, it's no wonder this is the place where Charlottesville's hip, young professionals go to get their groove on.
Rapture is open for lunch Monday through Friday from 11:30AM till 2:30PM, on Saturday from 11:00 AM until 3:00 PM, and Sunday Brunch is served from 11:00 until 3:00. Dinner is served 7 days a week from 5:30PM until 10:00PM, and munchies are available between lunch and dinner most days, and until 1:00 AM on weekends.
