Cheesetique Closes Ballston Location

Cheese store and wine bar Cheesetique has closed its Ballston location at 800 N. Glebe Road after three years in business.

The restaurant served its last customers last night (Sunday), though the company’s Shirlington and Alexandria locations remain open.

Restaurants on the western side of N. Glebe Road have struggled to stay in business amid an increasing number of dining options on the other side of the busy street, closer to the bulk of Ballston’s office and apartment buildings.

More on the closure from Cheesetique’s Facebook page:

After three years in operation, Cheesetique Ballston will be closing after dinner service this Sunday, June 16th.

We’re sad to leave our Ballston neighborhood, but hope you can come by for one last visit this weekend. And after that, we look forward to hosting you at one of our other cheese-tastic locations (Cheesetique Del Ray, Cheesetique Shirlington, Cheesetique Mosaic).

Thank you to all of our loyal Ballston patrons. We’ll see you soon!
