Paul Keevil originally moved from London to become a musician. The name “Millie’s” was born as a gesture to the elderly owners of the existing restaurant, Millie and Jack. A funky and irreverent coffee shop, Millie’s quickly became the darling of the Los Angeles restaurant scene, and the home away from home for many like-minded musicians and actors. Keevil left Los Angeles in the late 80’s, and after settling in Richmond, Virginia for a few years, decided to open Millie’s in Richmond in 1989. He has remained active in the music business over the years, and still plays whenever possible.
