Update at 2:15 p.m. — Management is hinting that the public may be able to stop by “soft-opening” events this weekend. One such event is taking place tonight — they’re advising people to stop by after 10:00 p.m.

The ink still damp on the ABC permit that arrived this morning, management at Lyon Hall (3100 Washington Boulevard) is hard at work preparing to open to the public on Tuesday. A small armada of beer and wine vendors will start delivering their wares today.

It’s the most highly-anticipated restaurant opening in recent memory in Arlington. This site alone has received more than 1,100 hits from people who searched for “Lyon Hall” on Google.

Opening in a historic property in Clarendon that most recently housed Dan Kain Trophies (there are trophies used as decorative items throughout the restaurant), Lyon Hall is a Euro-style brasserie with a heavy emphasis on beer, wine and charcuterie.

  • Nice decor! Reminds me of AGAINN in D.C., actually. Similar concept.

    I just think it’s great that all these local entrepreneurs (going way back to Faccia Luna and Whitlows)are investing in adapting, reusing and enhancing Clarendon’s old buildings. Most are not “historic” but they are one of the remaining ties to Clarendon’s rich local history. These people obviously recognize that there is quality and character embodied in these older buildings. And, the signage designs have been incredible too. Thanks !

    It is great to see old buildings re-purposed. It’s the dedicated work of citizens and neighborhood activists that leads to preserving buildings. Even more would be knocked down without active citizen participation.

    Great beer selection but I like the Hobgoblin. It was great!
