A 21st century American tavern, a casual spot, where the vibe is homey, the drinks excellent and the menu: “modern pub grub.”
Virtue Feed & Grain features soaring open windows, exposed brick and giant iron girders. Seating up to 350 revelers, this bi-level, airy warehouse also includes an outdoor lounge, TVs at each of the bars, and a private Porch lined with leather couches.
Located on the Alexandria waterfront, the building was a feed house in the late 1800s. In keeping with the unique history of the building the renovation has gone above and beyond to preserve authenticity. The floors, walls, hand-crafted tabletops, and bar shelves are all constructed with period wood, each heralding from a unique past.
In reusing recycled materials from abandoned structures, the newly renovated building has benefitted both the architectural and ecological environment. The plan (to the delight of Alexandrians and the historical society) is to bring the old warehouse about full circle; to re-establish the building and feed the people.
