A new Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant is coming to Ballston, according to building permits filed with Arlington County.
The restaurant will be located in the office building at 950 N. Glebe Road, at the corner of Glebe Road and Fairfax Drive. That’s just one block away from the recently-opened Greene Turtle, another large format sports-and-beer eatery.
Ballston beer lovers will not have any shortage of options in the near future. In addition to the Turtle and the forthcoming BW3, a World of Beer location is set to open across the street at some point this year, and that’s not to mention Rustico, which is a couple of blocks away on Wilson Boulevard.
There’s a large vacant retail space on the ground floor of 950 N. Glebe Road, though so far no permits have been posted in the windows. No word yet on when Buffalo Wild Wings hopes to open — presuming plans are still on track — but it took the company less than six months to build out their Crystal City location (2450 Crystal Drive) following the announcement that they had signed a lease.
Crystal City has been looking to attract just the right business — a bold-faced name that could convince local office workers to stay in the neighborhood for a drink or three while also drawing in people who don’t otherwise live or work in Crystal City.
They may have found just the right place.
Buffalo Wild Wings has just signed a lease for a currently-unoccupied retail space across from Jaleo at 23rd Street and Crystal Drive. The popular beer-wings-and-sports joint should attract quite a crowd.
It will be the sixth ‘BW3‘ in the area, one of two that are near a Metro station (in addition to the Rockville location), and the closest to D.C. proper.
No word yet on when the restaurant will be opening.
