A new 8000+ square foot Mellow Mushroom restaurant in Virginia Beach will anchor a renovated 214 room hotel—the Sheraton Virginia Beach Oceanfront—creating a new focal point for dining, tourism, and economic development in the area. Opening Spring 2022, and commanding the corner of Atlantic Avenue and 35th Street, the restaurant will celebrate the musical history of the city and will be a landmark for residents and visitors.
In keeping with Mellow Mushroom’s culture, the restaurant will have a unique theme that is reflected in the artwork and design. The artwork curated for this site ties back to Bossa Nova-inspired patterning, musical elements, and Brazilian flowers.
A mural by the Virginia artist Mark Paul Deren and a giant rotating “Mellow Mushroom” globe will be two of the artistic highlights of the new Mellow Mushroom. The globe will serve as a landmark for diners, hotel guests, and tourists.
