You know downtown Lynchburg. You know the Blue Ridge Mountains. The James River. Riverfront Park. The splash park. Friday Cheers. First Fridays. The list goes on. But, you probably don't know much about The Water Dog - yet. Here's a first look and how to find your way around what we hope to be a new Lynchburg experience.

Let's start with parking. We've got lots of it and it's right out our doors.

Look at this patio! We think you're going to love it too.

When you first walk in, the oyster bar will be the main event.

Salty. Sweet. Buttery. Briny.

Meander up some steps and over to the main bar and you may start to tear up. 36 lines dedicated to craft brews.

There are 36 lines there. Trust me.

We want to bring you the best brews we can get our hands on.

Craft is booming and this is why you're here. Relax, hipsters. We'll have PBR waiting in your corner should you need to tag out an IPA and tag in a cold lager ;O)

If you didn't see this match. Oh, man.

Also look for our craft cocktails.

If you didn't know, we pride ourselves on craft cocktails just as much as we will our craft brews.

In this area, we'll have five TVs so you won't miss the game.

I know, Mom! We're gonna clean up our mess.

We'll be spinning vinyl from time-to-time.

Every so often, we'll host Spin Parties to celebrate a particular album that transcends generations (e.g.: Pinkerton). And, we'll offer a special cocktail to celebrate.

Then, go check out the "Garage".

We think this space is perfect for private events. We've got a form for that if that's something you or your business are into.

Enjoy old Godzilla or kung-fu movies? Kayaking documentaries? What about the EPL and seeing if Leicester City can reclaim the throne? We'll have a giant freaking projector for that.

Ping pong your thing?

Someone gave us a totally awesome professional ping pong table and we are very resourceful. Start warming up ... ping pong tournaments will be in your future.

And yes. We're in negotiations with Chubbies for custom TWD 6" shorts.

We're debating on a shuffleboard table.

Not sure if it's in the cards but man do we love shuffleboard.

On your way out either grab one of our custom growlers and fill-er-up or build your own sixer.
