The Circle was a historic restaurant building located at Portsmouth, Virginia. It was built in 1947, and was a one-story, Moderne style building. It was a stuccoed concrete block structure with a prominent half-circle building mass marking the façade. The half-circle was surmounted by a neon-lit sign with the restaurant’s name. The bar had a mural attributed to Al Hirschfeld of mid-20th century celebrities. The Circle was an original curb-service restaurant, which later served as a dine-in restaurant. The building was demolished on August 19, 2013.
