Valet Parking at Max's on Broad

We're excited to partner with RVA Valet, in conjunction with Max's on Broad, to offer new valet parking options downtown. Valet drop-off and pickup will continue to be available in front of the theatre. Starting November 2016, we will also offer a second drop-off/pick-up location in front of Max's restaurant on North Adams Street, less than a block away from the theatre.

  • Valet at either location is complimentary for anyone who is having dinner, drinks, or dessert at Max’s before or after the show.
  • For theatre patrons who are only seeing the show or dining at another restaurant, valet parking is $8 and will be paid at the bar at the November Theatre. Please bring your ticket stub to the bar before the show or during intermission.
  • Patrons must return to the same location to pick their car up after the show. The second drop off location should help ease wait time at the end of the show.
  • Free valet while dining at Tarrant’s Café is also still available.

Richmond is the second location of Chef Mike Isabella’s acclaimed Italian-inspired restaurant. Originally opened in the Chinatown neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Graffiato offers hand-rolled pastas, artisanal pizzas and small plates. Chef Isabella’s seasonal small plates are inspired by the food he grew up eating in New Jersey prepared by his Italian-American grandmother. With heavy influence from Chef Isabella’s Mediterranean and Latin culinary training, Graffiato is anything but a traditional Italian eatery. Roasted potato gnocchi, chicken thighs with pepperoni sauce, charred octopus and roasted cauliflower are a few of the signature dishes you will find on the menu. Much of the wine and beer are sourced domestically, and often from the East Coast. Look for unique cocktails, domestic wine and Prosecco served straight from a tap.
