Each new day in D.C. seems to bring a new restaurant, a new neighborhood or a new reason to grab a group and head out for happy hour. A new spot popping up this October encompasses all three of these sources of entertainment by promising to bring D.C. to the water’s edge.

Located in the southwest quadrant of the nation’s capital, The Wharf is a new harbor-front development that will feature restaurants, shops, residences, hotels and other things to do with friends and family. Stretching one mile along the Potomac River, The Wharf will be further divided into 11 separate “locales” like Market Square, home to the Municipal Fish Market, or 7th Street Park where visitors and residents can kick back with a picnic or work remotely at one of the park’s stand-up desks.

The sustainable neighborhood will offer opportunities to kayak on the river, take a water taxi to locations in nearby Maryland and Virginia and take in live performing arts at The Anthem concert hall. Longstanding restaurant Cantina Marina will maintain its residence along the waterfront and continue to serve fresh seafood and cold beer on its colorful patio. It will be joined by a branch of D.C. favorite Hank’s Oyster Bar, Potomac Distilling Company and Kirwan’s Irish Pub, among a dozen other eateries.

Visitors to the Wharf can also enjoy proximity to D.C.’s metro network as well as the Washington Nationals baseball stadium, just 1.5 miles down the road.
