Chalet Pop-up at The Case Study

Dec 1 – Feb 29, 2024

After a day of adventure, there's nothing quite like leaving the chilly outdoors behind and stepping into the cozy embrace of a mountain retreat. A sanctuary where you can warm up, recharge and savor culinary delights, beverages and great conversation. It's a time to reflect on the day's exploits and extend the good times well into the evening. And guess what? You don't need to jet off to the French Alps to experience this.

Whether you've just landed from a long flight, wrapped up a three-day conference, completed a sightseeing tour, conquered a shopping spree, or simply want to unwind after a day well-lived, there's a haven waiting for you.

We are taking over The Case Study to create Charlottesville’s coziest gathering place.
