Rooftop Bar & Grill in Courthouse closes permanently as landlord looks for new tenant

Arlington Rooftop Bar & Grill is permanently closed, and the landlord is looking for a new tenant.

Located at 2424 Wilson Blvd, the multi-story sports bar and restaurant opened in 2010 and became a popular destination thanks in large part to its open air rooftop deck and its ability to host events, including local and state political gatherings.

Despite its popularity, Arlington County police frequently visited the restaurant for noise complaints related to live music, according to a county staff report.

In 2021, the Arlington County Board voted unanimously to revoke the restaurant’s live entertainment permit. The restaurant also closed temporarily in 2019 due to a zoning issue.

Raghav Dumera, one of the restaurant’s landlords, confirmed that its last day of operation was New Year’s Eve and it will not be reopening for the warmer weather season. The closure was not announced on the restaurant’s social media accounts.

Dumera, who also owns and operates several other restaurants in the same building — Takeshi Sushi, Delhi Dhaba and Ghost Kabob — gave few details about the closure except to say the venue’s owner did not renew the lease.

Dumera noted he is looking for a new tenant to fill the space as soon as possible.

“So, anyone that’s interested can definitely reach out,” he said.
