Bon Air

Richmonders used to summer in Bon Air, which was named for the good air that supposedly had restorative properties. With home styles that vary from late 19th century Victorians to new construction, Bon Air is an eclectic enclave just outside of the city center.

Key Features

Proximity to Activity: Living in Bon Air means quick access to Downtown Richmond, the Southside, the riverside parks of the James River, and shopping at both Short Pump Town Center and Stony Point Fashion Park.

Classic Architecture: Bon Air features some of the most interesting Victorian and Edwardian homes and buildings in the City of Richmond, and even plays host to the annual Victorian Days celebration.

Don't miss the Spaghetti a la Greek!

Joe's Inn's Bon Air location has just as loyal a following as the original Fan location, and way more seating. Great burgers, salads, and brunch, but if you're up for pasta (and you like Feta cheese), don't miss the Spaghetti a la Greek. But don't try to eat the whole thing!
