Located in the heart of Clarendon,

Wilson Hardware adds a contemporary flare to its namesake, the historic 1960s Virginia Hardware building. The industrial-chic, three-level concept serves up creative cocktails and craveworthy new dishes.

The rooftop bar features a retractable awning which makes it suitable for all seasons, and the new garden terrace gives guests a chance to enjoy shareable bites and cocktails both indoors and outdoors.

Food service includes happy hour deals, brunch specials, dinner and lunch, and Wilson’s versatile, three-tiered space creates an elevated venue for any event. Voted Best Rooftop, Best Cocktail Bar, and Best Brunch by Northern Virginia Magazine, Wilson Hardware brings the ultimate immersive experience to Arlington.

main dining room

Featuring soaring ceilings adorned with custom built industrial-chic chandeliers, Wilson Hardware’s main dining room is the largest area of the venue. Perfect for brunch, dinner, or large private events, the focal point of the space is the venue’s signature papier-mâché mural that is illuminated with an ultraviolet intelligent lighting system.

garden lounge

The garden lounge brings the best of Wilson Hardware’s outdoor spaces into an indoor environment. Featuring sprawling cherry blossom branches across the ceiling, the greenery-covered walls of the dining room adorn the alluring magenta banquettes that run along both sides of the room.


Overlooking the main dining room, the mezzanine is the ideal space for an intimate group dinner or to enjoy cocktails in a lounge environment.

rooftop bar

Wilson Hardware’s rooftop bar is one of its most popular spaces. Recently expanded to twice its original size, there is extensive new banquette seating and dining space in order to meet the additional demand. The area also has a new retractable rooftop system that can be opened or closed depending on the weather. And of course the rooftop is also heated for operation during colder moths.

garden terrace

The garden terrace now offers a lush patio experience with flowers draped across collections of black wicker lamps light the space with an amber glow. The patio is ideal for dining, cocktails or as we event space, replete with its own bar to match the main dining room and the rooftop.
