Congratulations to our friend, Tirtha! #RVAFW

Sahara Sriraman, Spectrum Editor VCU alumna Tirtha Ratnam never thought she would be a well-known Richmond runway model, let alone an international one. However, four years after she went to her first casting call on an impulse, she’s signed with IMG Models, an international modeling agency.

Disappointed this is being held here...🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️
Had a wonderful dinner on 7/24/2019. Great food, Great Service. Thanks to the chef and the staff for a fantastic evening!
On behalf of Reflections Big Band a heartfelt thank-you to the good folks at Vagabond for inviting us to perform last night in The Rabbit Hole Speakeasy. The full 20-piece band fit nicely and the acoustics were perfect. The audience was great! Two encores! 🎶🎶🎷
Happened to be in town Saturday and found this gem. Good food, dope band, and all around chill vibe. Authentic downtown culture with a real neo vibe. Shout out to Nick and staff for great service!
Good mourning vagabonds everywhere
Wow....2nd time I tried to book a dinner party here... last year, and now this year... both times no call back!! Typically responds in 2hrs??Nottt!! Took my business to the Speakeasy Grill...as a business owner myself..very unprofessional! #wontbback!👎
Had the pleasure of celebrating my Pre 50th Birthday last night. Enjoyed great food service and music thank you Julynn @ Vagabond!
Someone please help me! I heard a radio spot that there is a listening party for Raheem Devaughn's new album this Wednesday at Vagabond. I reached out here and was told to contact the radio station. The radio station has offered no information. Is it still happening and how can I be a part of this??? Thanks.
Extraordinary fan footage. Stop by my channel, LIKE me and SUBSCRIBE! I have a collection of concert videos shot exclusively by me. So, come check it out at:
Is there an upcoming event with Raheem DeVaughn?
Tried to make our dinner reservations and so we can do early entry to The National as we have been doing for several years. They no longer take reservations even for early entry to a show! Can any one in the restaurant business explain to me how this is good customer service? How can this possibly be a good idea?
A BIG thank you again to Sarah and Gordon for making last night awesome! The service at Vagabond is amazing. Had to give you 5 stars on Yelp.
