Our Story

Welcome To LW’s Livery Stable

In 1849, LW Cox acquired a triangular piece of property at the foot of Vinegar Hill in Charlottesville, VA. Originally intended for his home, the property later came to house a livery stable and carriage works.

After undergoing several transitions, the property became the site of The A&P Grocery Store in 1939 with its former compressor room area known as LW’s Livery StableTM today.

In 2010, a modern version was born. LW’s Livery Stable is a place to come and relax with friends & enjoy upscale pub fare. We sought to create a welcoming, comfortable environment with mementos from our family knowing full well our great grandfather would be a proud, and frequent customer. We hope you enjoy our establishment.
