Mister Days replacement The Renegade (3100 Clarendon Blvd) didn’t have a lot of time to establish itself in the Clarendon nightlife scene before it was shut down by the pandemic, but the restaurant is making a comeback tour with live music.
With Phase 2 of Northern Virginia’s reopening starting today, The Renegade is opening to in-person audiences.
“Fans can watch bands live in person or online on The Renegade‘s Facebook, YouTube and Twitter pages,” the restaurant said in a press release. “All takeout and deliveries ordered during live shows will be 10% off and The Renegade will donate an additional 10% of sales during the show to the band and their Keep the Music Alive fund that supports local musicians, DJs and sound teams that have suffered during the pandemic.”
The next act lined up is local band Keeton, which is scheduled to perform tonight (Friday) starting at 9 p.m.
“We’re able to meet our guests wherever they’re at,” owner and chef Patrick Crump said in the press release. “If they’re ready for in-house dining and a show, we’re here. If they’d rather get takeout and watch the music at home, we make it happen.”
Currently, those in indoor public places in Virginia are required to wear masks.
The restaurant’s current hours are daily from noon to 2 a.m.
