Make the most of this season with Old Town Alexandria events planned by King & Rye. New seasonally inspired cocktails, Old Town’s favorite dining experiences, creative culinary combinations — we have a gamut of events for you to experience.

Chef's Supper Club

The Southern-style of Alexandria, Virginia's King & Rye meets the Philadelphia Steakhouse of Urban Farmer, during this 7-course dinner experience and whiskey tasting. Executive Chef's Tomas Chavarria and Sonny Ingui work side-by-side to bring you a round-up of courses that showcase the different styles of each restaurant and chef. American Whiskey Ambassador Beth Burrows guides you through a Basil Hayden's tasting perfectly paired with each course.


Sip & Stretch

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.


No Kid Hungry

HUNGRY TO HELP? This month we're donating $2 for each Grapefruit Rose Sangria sold and 50% of our biscuit basket proceeds! Through No Kid Hungry, a child is connected with 10 meals for every $1 donated. 


The Alexandrian Summer Market

THIS MONTH on July 7th and 21st from 5PM - 8PM.

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.
