Raise a Toast to the Season

From our bar to our kitchen to our courtyard, at King & Rye we stay in tune with the seasons. Our focus on regional harvests brings locally sourced, seasonal food and drinks to your plate – a bounty perfect to enjoy no matter the weather.

Our expert team, including our chef and mixologists, craft thoughtful menus that reflect our region’s quintessential landscape and scenery. 

Old Town Alexandria events at King & Rye are the perfect way to dig into any season.

Enjoy a Unique Setting

As long-time hospitality professionals in a tight-knit community, we know that great food and drinks are only a part of a good time out on the town. 

Our seasonal Old Town Alexandria events are an invitation to indulge in unique settings. Excellent flavor should always be served in an ambiance where you can unwind and feel special.

When you step into King & Rye from the brick-lined sidewalk of our beloved downtown, you will be welcomed into a stately, yet relaxed space. Whether you choose to settle into our traditional dining room or romantic courtyard, you will experience genuine, inclusive Southern hospitality at its finest. 

In the summer, our newly redesigned courtyard offers fire pits, lounge areas, and intimate dining spaces that offer the perfect ambiance for conversations and togetherness. In the winter, enjoy our exclusive Winter Wonderland igloos for a private dining experience like none other. 

Relish Old Town Alexandria Events

King & Rye is built on a foundation of community. We source from local farmers and butchers and use in-season ingredients to bring you a culinary experience that always feels fresh.
