New beer hall coming to former Capitol City Brewing space in Shirlington

At long last the large Capitol City Brewing Co. space in Shirlington, vacant since March 2018, is getting a new tenant.

Astro Beer Hall, a two-level bar and coffee shop from the owners of Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken, will be opening in the space at 4001 Campbell Avenue next summer, according to a press release. In addition to 14,000 square feet of indoor space, the new beer hall will have a 80-seat outdoor patio.

Gone is Capitol City’s brewing equipment. In are pool tables, pinball and classic arcade games, along with garage doors that will open for “an indoor-outdoor feel when the weather is nice.”

Those behind the beer hall include a pair of local bar scene veterans, Geoff Dawson and Peter Bayne, whose past and present ventures include CarPool, Buffalo Billiards, Iron Horse Taproom, Penn Social and Highline RxR.

This will be the second Astro Beer Hall location. The first opened at 1306 G Street NW earlier this fall.

More from the press release:

The owners of Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken, Elliot Spaisman and Jeff Halpern, together with Tin Shop – a creative bar and restaurant development group founded by Geoff Dawson and Peter Bayne – announce the expansion of Astro Beer Hall to Shirlington. The new Northern Virginia location is due to open in the Village at Shirlington in late summer 2022. The two-level beer hall and full-service coffee shop will operate all day with doughnuts and coffee in the morning, transitioning throughout the day to lunch and dinner fare with beer offerings. Located at 4001 Campbell Avenue, Astro Beer Hall Shirlington will also feature an expansive 80-seat patio facing the corner of South Quincy Street and Campbell Avenue.

Astro Beer Hall Shirlington will offer many of the features that have made the original location popular, including an all-day, full-service coffee program using La Colombe beans alongside Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken’s signature doughnuts and breakfast sandwiches. The kitchen will also offer lunch, happy hour and dinner with an expanded menu of Astro’s beloved fried chicken, sandwiches, salads, made-to-order cake doughnuts, bar snacks and more. A weekend brunch menu will also be available and the bar, which boasts 20 tap lines, will serve a variety of local draft beers, cocktails and frozen drinks.

The 14,000 square foot space will feature three roll-up garage doors along the patio side of the beer hall, allowing for an integrated indoor-outdoor feel when the weather is nice. Astro Beer Hall Shirlington will also be host to two game rooms with pool tables, and arcade games including Asteroids, Ms. Pacman, pinball and more. Guests will be able to watch sports and special events on large screen televisions throughout the space.
