Richmond’s historic Shockoe Slip has long been the scene of some of the city’s finest restaurants and best nightlife.  Much of the land in Shockoe Bottom and Shockoe slip was part of Colonel William Mayo’s plan of the city.  This is one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods.  The building of the James River Flood Wall […]
