Newest Boathouse Restaurant set to open in June on Hopewell waterfront
Kevin Healy’s latest restaurant creation, The Boathouse at City Point on Hopewell’s waterfront, is gearing up to open in June.
The 6,000-square-foot-restaurant, with views of the confluence of the Appomattox and James Rivers, will have an indoor seating capacity for 223 people. In addition, there will be an outdoor patio providing 1,257 square feet. An outdoor event space (tent pad) of 2,450 square feet also is planned.
The restaurant, at 701 W. Randolph Road, is expected to create 75 jobs.
The Boathouse at City Point will be the fourth location of The Boathouse in the Richmond area. Healy’s Housepitality Family group of restaurants also owns The Boathouse at Sunday Park in Chesterfield County, (1988), The Boathouse at Rocketts Landing in Henrico County (2009) and The Boathouse at Short Pump Town Center, also in Henrico, (2015).
The group also owns Casa del Barco, a Mexican restaurant in downtown Richmond. A second location of Casa del Barco is scheduled to open this year at Short Pump Town Center.
Serving as general contractor on the new Boathouse project is J.D. Lewis Construction Management, based in Richmond. Walter Parks Architects, also of Richmond, is doing the design.
