The death of Bracket Room in Clarendon, as announced by Bracket Room itself, was greatly exaggerated.
The briefly-closed sports bar is back open and offering takeout cuisine, according to a new Instagram post on Monday. The post comes less than a week after a now-deleted post announcing Bracket Room’s permanent closure amid the coronavirus outbreak.
It’s unclear what prompted the reversal.
“With your continued support, hopefully we can stay open and push through this crisis together,” the restaurant said. “We look forward to seeing you all come in and we can’t wait to get past this and back to normal.”

‼️ Bracket Room will be opening back up! ‼️ First and foremost, THANK YOU ALL for the support and well wishes over the last week. We have decided as a business that we are going to be opening back up starting TOMORROW, from 12PM to 8PM Monday thru Sunday, with a limited menu. At this time, we will only be taking phone orders, not any online or tablet orders. You can reach Bracket Room at 703-276-7337. *The limited menu is viewable below and online. With your continued support, hopefully we can stay open and push through this crisis together. We look forward to seeing you all come in and we can’t wait to get past this and back to normal.
Bracket Room is not the only Arlington business to re-think a coronavirus closure. On Monday, local favorite The Italian Store reopened to business “in a limited capacity” after a week earlier deciding to close during the outbreak.
