Sip & Stretch | Courtyard Yoga Class, Sangria and Snacks

We're bringing you the perfect combo this summer with our Sip & Stretch classes from June through August! We've partnered with 532 Yoga in Alexandria to bring you an hour to reset and restore, and we know it wouldn't be a summer night without a cool class of sangria!

Following your outdoor yoga class in our courtyard, relax with a complimentary glass of sangria and shared charcuterie boards in the King & Rye Cocktail Garden.

B´╗┐ring your own yoga mat or feel free to use one of ours! If you're feeling hungry, stick around for a bit to eat from our seasonal Cocktail Garden menu.


Whiskey Dinner Experience

Enhance your King & Rye dinner with a whiskey tasting experience. For groups of 6-12 people, King & Rye offers a family-style dinner with a tasting of our favorite whiskey pairings. With a pre-fixed menu price of $95.00, you can enjoy biscuits for the table, two starters, two entrees and two desserts with a variety of four whiskeys. 

For a more interactive experience, you can book a guided tasting with our expert bartender to learn about the history of whiskey, the barrel making process, and how to properly pair it with your favorite dishes at home. The guided experience is $95.00/per person with one additional $150.00 fee. 

The Whiskey Dinner Experience must be booked at least 1 week in advance and is based on availability.

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. 

Join us at one (or more) of our Old Town Alexandria events and start the season with unforgettable food, delectable drinks, and the company of good friends.
