CELEBRATING 20 YEARS OF GOOD FOOD, WINE & FRIENDS IN THE HEART OF ALEXANDRIA'S DEL RAY NEIGHBORHOOD

The Evening Star is a rollicking neighborhood gem located in the heart of Del Ray, and just a stone’s throw from both Alexandria’s Old Town and Washington DC. Opened in 1997, Evening Star is well known for its friendly vibe and convivial setting and continues to shine with a fiercely loyal crowd. Led by executive chef Jonathan Till, the Star combines gracious hospitality with a seasonal American menu, much of which features produce grown on the rooftop garden and by local farmers throughout the region. Fun, funky and always delicious, the Evening Star is your neighborhood place.

THE FRONT PORCH

As most of you know by now, we have expanded our outdoor patio on which to enjoy early evening drinks served alongside a terrific menu tailored for outdoor fun. And as we ease into fall, we’re looking forward to breaking out the heaters and table-side fire pits to keep it all nice and cozy.

So come join us for a post-work respite al fresco, if only for Edith’s famous Bourbon Slushies! The Front Porch, and the new spacious Back Yard, are open Tuesday through Sunday (weather permitting) beginning at 4 o’clock week days and 10am for Saturday & Sunday brunch.

Location

PLANET WINE SHOP

Planet Wine is located next door to the Evening Star and serves and the neighborhood’s go-to spot for their collection of nearly 1500 wine labels and equally head-spinning number of craft beers on offer.

Planet Wine remains open daily. And while we invite one and all to visit the shop and browse the shelves (safely distanced, of course), we understand that not everyone will be comfortable doing so.

As such, we are offering a tightly curated menu of wine and beer available for delivery.
