Set on the ground and second oors of a brand-new 300-unit luxury apartment building, 12,000-square-foot Mission Navy Yard serves as a premier eating and drinking destination for local residents as well as those who work at the U.S. Department of Transportation two blocks away. Now, the area includes 10 other restaurants, and new residents pour in daily. "We designed the space more as a bar than a traditional restaurant, with four different bar areas offering plenty of space to eat and drink on game days and non-game days," says Brogan. "There is also ample private event space." For the design, modern brick walls and metal mash-up with colorful tiling and even more colorful artwork and wall murals, meant to add energy to the space. "The neighborhood was really excited to have us open as one of the ‰rst large-scale bar and restaurants in the area," says Brogan. At the "plaza bar," a 40-foot-ceiling adds drama to the space, while the upstairs main bar spans 150 feet — the longest bar in the city — housing two miles of draft lines pouring margaritas, wine and beer alongside a menu of elevated street tacos, enchiladas, nachos, guacamole and more. A sprawling Mexican-tiled staircase is anchored by six-garage-door windows leading to outdoor balconies. In addition, the glass-walled private dining and func- tion room has its own bar. Other concepts new to Navy Yard include the seafood-centric Salt Line, Italian-focused Morini Piccolo and the second outposts of local pizza restau- rants All-Purpose and Declaration. Food trucks park in the area, and a beer garden sets up shop across from the parking garage for Nationals Park along Yards Park Riverwalk. + Photos courtesy of Mission Set on the ground and second oors of a brand-new 300-unit luxury apartment building, 12,000-square-foot Mission Navy Yard serves as a premier eating and drinking destination.
