Clarendon’s Brass Rabbit Public House now open in former Bracket Room location

Brass Rabbit Public House in Clarendon is now open, filling the space once occupied by the Bracket Room.

Back in July 2021, ARLnow reported that a new bar and restaurant was moving into 1210 N. Garfield Street and, a few months later, that ownership was aiming for a mid-February opening. That goal wasn’t quite met, but after a bit of a delay Brass Rabbit finally opened its doors last week on Tuesday, March 22.

The pub comes from local restaurateur Reese Gardner, who owns a number of other Arlington eateries and watering holes, including Copperwood Tavern and Dudley’s Sport and Ale in Shirlington, Quinn’s on Corner in Rosslyn, and Clarendon’s The Pinemoor, just a couple of blocks from Brass Rabbit.

Photos show that rabbit-themed decor and bunny puns dot the interior. The menu also aims to be fit for a rabbit, described as “elevated pub fare with a healthy twist.”

The all-day menu includes lettuce wraps, carrot fries, a number of different salads, soups, sandwiches, wings, and burgers. The brunch menu is similar, plus the addition of carrot cake french toast. To drink and “keep the place hoppin’,” there are more than a dozen beers on tap, hand-crafted cocktails (like the “Rabbit-Hole Fashioned”), and a hefty wine list.

Brass Rabbit replaces the Bracket Room, which closed about a year ago. That restaurant and bar opened nine years ago and was co-owned by Chris Bukowski, who is probably best known for his ‘Bachelorette’ appearances — and who is not the only reality TV personality to own an Arlington restaurant.

The Bracket Room was known as a place to watch sports, the Bachelor, and for garnering noise complaints from neighbors.
