Featuring trattoria-style Italian fare, Varia serves as a combination lounge, piano bar and tasting room with a luxe atmosphere and unequaled wine selection. Located on the second floor of the new Hilton Norfolk The Main, Varia was designed with a luxe interior complete with an open kitchen, reclaimed chandeliers from the historic Cavalier Hotel in nearby Virginia Beach, and two hidden "speakeasy" inspired private dining rooms.
Anchoring the signature lounge atmosphere at Varia is a 24 bottle wine cruvinet and live piano entertainment provided nightly to complement a full schedule of culinary workshops and tasting events.
