Quirk Hotel, a Destination Hotel, was originally the luxury department store, J.B. Mosby & Co, constructed in 1916 in the heart of The Broad Street Commercial Historic District, which contains the finest and best-preserved collection of turn-of-the-century commercial buildings in the city of Richmond. Quirk Hotel will keep architectural elements intact from the historic building, including the main floor’s segmental arches, groin vault ceiling and the ornamental ironwork staircase.
The overall art-centric theme will be reflected throughout the property, from guest rooms that create a refuge by combining historic highlights with contemporary millwork, warm wood floors and frosted glass shower enclosures to the vaulted lobby to artistic installations that hint back to the former department store manikins and wardrobe style casework.
The culinary experience at Quirk Hotel will focus on artisan cuisine, sourced locally with an emphasis on regional culinary traditions. The Quirk Hotel bar will showcase modern adaptations of classic cocktails, small batch spirits and regional craft beers.
Quirk Hotel will also feature a fitness center, 2,000 square feet of unique function space and more.
