It’s urban and bucolic, historic yet modern. There are boundless hiking trails, wedding venues, wineries, breweries, boutique retail shops, and theaters (not to mention more restaurant seats than there are people to fill them). It’s for the limitless adventurer, the wine-taster, the music-seeker, and the family searching for a new experience.

At Charlottesville Insider, our goal is simple: to showcase Charlottesville by curating our ideas about what makes it unique. Follow our insiders to see what’s new, find exclusive deals, or simply figure out how to spend your day in our favorite city.

🎿🥃🔥 Introducing the @matterhorncville, the new pop-up alpine ski bar atop Common Haus! We stopped by after the Grand Illumination for cocktails, apps and all the Après ski vibes as the party was just getting started! The Matterhorn is open to the public Tuesday-Saturday starting at 5pm, for a $10 cover (free to @common__house members). Come for the charcuterie and a hot specialty drink after work, or stop in late night - just be sure to bring 3 buddies who are prepared to hit the “shotski’! Either way, you’ll definitely need to check out this unique rooftop experience on the downtown mall! ...

🥃 Have family in town today and want to get out of the house? Bring them out for the Thanksgiving eve “Drinksgiving” festivities this evening! We recommend the Cicchetti Bar at Tavola to enjoy a classy yet welcoming and cozy ambiance, and top notch drinks. Ask Ryan, our featured bartender for the month of November, for “dealer’s choice” if you’re unsure of what you want to order - he’ll fix you up something special! He’s been working at the Cicchetti bar for 2.5 years now, so you can put your trust in him. We tried “Ryan’s drink”, appropriately named after the man who invented it, an impressive bourbon based concoction made with Yellow Chartreuse. The bar has a full service menu, featuring some of our favorite food in town. First come first served!

🗓️ Upcoming at Tavola...
🍽️ December 4th - Seasonal dinner with chef’s tasting menu
🥂 January 31st - NYE dinner

✨🎄🍷Experience the magic of the season at @veritaswinery this year! Veritas Illuminated is back for a second year, with a bigger and brighter display; the half mile walking trail features over 100,000 twinkling lights, and multiple new installations. We loved the new massive illuminated sleigh, perfect for photos of your crew! Cozy up by the fire with a glass of wine, mulled wine or hot cocoa in their beautifully decorated tasting room. Their new menu includes French onion grilled cheese, truffle fries and peanut butter pie. All of it was decadent, and the perfect treat to enjoy after a brisk winter walk!

🗓️ Open now through January 6th, most Thursdays-Sundays.
🎟️ Tickets range from $10-$15/person.

✨ Introducing a brand new event this winter at Foxfield...”Balloon Glow” presented by @monticellocountryballooning, Thomas Jefferson Hot Air Ballooning, and @blueridgeballooning. December 13th, 5pm.

"A balloon glow is just what it sounds like... but better! While tethered to the ground, hot air balloons inflate and the pilots light them from within. The sight of hot air balloons lit up like giant colorful light bulbs is breathtaking. Pilots also coordinate "all burns," illuminating all balloons at once as well as "countdowns," which are very crowd participatory events."
🥘 Food trucks will be on-site at this free event! Event may be cancelled due to inclement weather. Check social media and for updates.
