Meet Me on the Roof!

Now that we are well into Phase 3 of Virginia’s reopening, we are able to dine both inside and outside, so long as we adhere to Virginia’s social distancing guidelines. But since it is warm out, I like to opt for outdoor dining. And even better than that is rooftop outdoor dining, socially distanced, of course! Here are my top three favorite rooftop bar-restaurants in Arlington that are providing COVID-compliant service (my absolute favorite rooftop spot – Amuse at Le Meridien in Rossyln – is currently closed).

Counting down. . .


(3) Dudley’s Sport and Ale, 2766 South Arlington Mill Drive, Village at Shirlington

If you are looking for a sports bar/pub vibe, Dudley’s rooftop is the place to go. If you are missing your favorite game food, Dudley’s has an elevated version of what you are looking for from soft pretzels to amazing burgers to crab cake tots! And, of course, there is beer. Dudley’s runs excellent specials on beer.



(2) Arlington Rooftop Bar and Grill, 2424 Wilson Blvd., Courthouse

With its diverse menu of what my sister likes to call “upscale pub grub,” Arlington Rooftop Bar and Grill is a great spot to grab a refreshing drink and have a nice meal on a warm summer night. From chicken tacos to sweet potato fries, there are a lot of great options to choose from, and their colorful assortment of margaritas are the perfect cool-down drink.



(1) Wilson Hardware, 2915 Wilson Blvd., Clarendon

I absolutely love the food at Wilson Hardware! The chefs are so creative with the menu; it is impossible to have a bad meal there. My absolute favorite thing that they do is the sautéed wild mushroom appetizer. The drinks are amazing too. All can be enjoyed six feet apart on their spacious rooftop.
