IYE is located in the heart of historic Shockoe Bottom, an ever evolving industrial neighborhood that is home to Richmond's entertainment district. Plenty of clubs, award winning restaurants, amazing craft breweries and the best barbecue in town are within walking distance or a very short drive from our front and back doors. The neighborhood is located immediately east of the central business district and Interstate 95. Lying in the shallow valley adjacent to the James River, Shockoe Bottom served as a hub for industrial enterprises throughout much of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The Canal Walk has also managed to creep its way into the southern portion of the neighborhood. Shockoe Bottom continues to prove to be one of the City's most progressive and trendiest neighborhoods.
