WHAT ON EARTH IS ATLAS... 42?
It’s no secret that when it comes to incredible dining experiences, Richmond VA is where you’d want to be. From 3 Monkeys to Tarrant’s, to Peter Chang’s to Proper Pie, there’s just about something for everyone.
Unless you wanna play ping pong.
Richmond has its share of cultural and historical value also. History buffs rejoice; Richmond has roots dating back as far as the 17th century. It was crucial to the development of the American Revolution, and countless museums and exhibits show off the rich and vibrant history.
Or you can come play some corn hole.
If you’re a music fan, there’s no need to plan a trip to Nashville. Richmond hosts some of the country’s most incredible music venues, including the Richmond Jazz Festival, the 2nd Street Festival and more open mic nights than you can shake a stick at.
Unless of course, you’re feeling like a game of giant Jenga.
You see what we’re saying? For incredible pieces of art, there’s the VMFA. For everything else, there’s Atlas 42. This is where you’ll find the eats, the drinks, the games and all the people who want to let loose after work.
Atlas 42 is located right in the heart of Innsbrook. Here’s the brilliant part: you can completely skip rush hour traffic and hang out with your people right here, at Innsbrook, between 4pm and 8pm on Wednesdays when we are open to the public for our weekly Hump Day Happy Hour. We’ve got ping pong, bocce ball, corn hole, giant jenga and one heck of a fire pit. We’re pretty fond of the fire pit.
So whether you’re looking to get your competitive game on, grab a bite to eat, or just chill after work, we’ve got you covered at Atlas 42, in Innsbrook.
BUILT LOCAL WITH LOVE
“Sidney Gunst had a problem. He was faced with two vacant, adjoining spaces in his Innsbrook Shoppes strip center after two restaurant tenants closed down.
But Gunst, known as the mastermind of the surrounding Innsbrook office park, didn’t panic.
He decided to knock down a wall separating the former Sharky’s and Curry House spaces and build out a nearly 12,000-square-foot bar and restaurant, designed to have the feel of downtown breweries while also catering to Innsbrook workers.
He’s calling the spot Atlas 42, inspired by a statue of Atlas he rescued from being thrown out at Stony Point, as well as Douglas Adams’ novel The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. The statue is visible from the space’s large outdoor patio, which includes a bar.
With two 30-foot bars, six pingpong tables, two bocce ball courts, eight cornhole sets and two stages, Atlas 42 aims to be a destination for Innsbrook workers after they clock out, Gunst said.”
