Overview of Decor

The décor of Blackwall Hitch conveys an upscale look with a handcrafted vibe that is urban chic and modern with a casual, nautical twist. The energy-filled environment has the feel of an old, industrial shipyard with elements of elegance that includes Quartz flooring in the foyer, cedar-wrapped walls, reclaimed and restored tables and chairs, antique elements, and replica Edison lighting. – Bobbi Nock & Tammy Ray, co-designers

Captain’s Quarters

The Captain's Quarters

The Captain’s Quarters

The Captain’s Quarters is a private room with floor to ceiling windows that overlook the Dockside Patio and Alexandria Waterfront. The room is set with three rectangular farmhouse dining tables and are matched with reclaimed and restored chairs. The white painted cedar-wrapped walls provide a perfect backdrop to the nautical art displayed and contrasts beautifully with the dark chocolate wood flooring. With plenty of natural light beaming into the room and strands of Edison lights that criss-cross the tables, the room brings to mind images of a garden patio party complete with fresh flowers accenting every table.
