Mellow Mushroom Newport News - The Story
Inspired by the Newport News shipyard and local history, the restaurant features tributes to historic figures and monuments from around the area. The exterior of the building is made from Hokie stone, brick, and concrete block with a neutral color palette and large windows. Inside, guests are greeted by bold pops of red and orange. The east wall features a rendering of the SS America (renamed the SS Newport News), while the west wall includes notable local icons like Christopher Newport. An image of Ella Fitzgerald gives a spirited, sophisticated feel the space. The large, oval bar is reminiscent of a submarine sail. Not just impressive with its ample seating, the bar also features pendant lights made from World War II ship air horns, and underneath the cargo holds are filled with beer growlers.
