The jewel of Fashion Centre, our 12,000 square-foot refuge offers fuel for shopping, including a breezy terrace that overlooks the bustling streets of Pentagon City. Spanning two levels, with a mezzanine that accommodates up to 150 hungry guests, there’s plenty of space for intimate dinners, large parties and get-togethers. Have a seat at the airy 8-seat pizza bar where bubbling, thin-crust pizzas make their debut, or wave to the people below from a private booth in the sky. It’s hard to ignore the industrial glass and steel elevator, or feel the warm, primal fires from two wood-burning ovens. Exposed pipes, warm reclaimed timber walls, cool concrete and steel make for an attractive place to gather. Fun, handcrafted signature cocktails and a unique selection from award-winning local brewers and winemakers complete an experience you won't find anyplace else.
