Clarendon is the heart of Arlington, VA’s nightlife and dining scene. A variety of restaurants, clubs, lounges, live venues and bars makes it an eclectic, middle-of-the-road destination. With new restaurants, retail space and luxury condos being built, this DC suburb located just over the Key Bridge from Georgetown is full of young professionals looking for a good time.
Located at the intersection of Washington and Clarendon Blvd: Madrose features a large outdoor patio outside while the inside contains a lounge and dining area.
The food is pub-inspired complete with an extensive beer selection and full bar.
Madrose serves dinner from 4 to 11 pm but the party doesn’t stop until 2am as guests party the night away. Weekends also feature a lively brunch 10:30am to 2:30pm.
A-Town caters to every crowd from family dinner to a wild night out on the town!
A-Town is popular as a sports bar, specifically during football games and features one of the biggest Sunday brunch buffets you’ll ever see.
Clarendon Ballroom in Arlington is exactly what the name says.
The room is huge, the dance parties are awesome and you can rent it out for private parties. There’s also an ill roof.
The crowd is ready for whatever!
Owned by the same group as Chi-Cha lounge, Guarapo is Clarendon’s top hookah spot.
It’s the only place in town that offers Guarapo cocktails (sugar cane syrup mixed with vodka and lime juice).
With a nice tapas menu and DJs, its always a safe bet.
Spider Kelly’s is kinda like Chuck-E-Cheese for big kids that wanna get wasted. We love that.
Bigger and better than ever, recent renovations brought a new bar, lounge areas, pool tables, shuffleboard, darts and video games to the neighborhood spot that’s open late every night!
Inside sources tell us this a great place to hunt big cats, if ya know what we mean.
Dining room upstairs, bar downstairs, nice beer/wine/cocktail menu… happy hunting!
From the website and description you’d think this Irish pub was more suited to a 30’s crowd, but we heard different!
With so many young pros and college students in the area, Ri Ra can get pretty crazy.
Movie night, trivia night and obviously a bad ass rooftop in the heart of it all.
Definitely a little more of a young professional than a ‘let’s get wasted’ kind of place. But all that means is good beer and a clean roof.
