Jeffrey Beers Sets Sail at Norfolk’s Waterside District
Norfolk, Virgina may have been founded as a settlement in 1636, but the city has never looked more modern, in large part thanks to the new 135,000-square-foot Waterside District mixed-use development by Jeffrey Beers International. “My team and I found a great amount of design inspiration in the nautical history of Norfolk,” says founder and CEO Jeffrey G. Beers. Seaworthy details in yellow and navy wash over the 22,550-square-foot Blue Moon TapHouse, but the maritime theme really crests at the Harbor Club restaurant and bar, where thick ropes secure not just pendants but the hull of an actual sailboat, painted in a white-to-blue gradient.
