24 Years of Good Food, Wine & Friends At The Evening Star

The Evening Star is a rollicking neighborhood gem located in the heart of Del Ray, and just a stone’s throw from both Alexandria’s Old Town and Washington DC. Opened in 1997, The Evening Star is well known for its friendly vibe and convivial setting and continues to shine with a fiercely loyal crowd. The Star combines gracious hospitality with a seasonal American menu, much of which features produce grown on the rooftop garden and by local farmers throughout the region. It’s all paired alongside a collection of nearly 1500 regional and international wine labels – sourced by Planet Wine, our shop next door – and an equally head-spinning number of craft beers and devilishly delicious cocktails. Fun, funky and always delicious, the Evening Star is your neighborhood place.
