Hawk was the venerable meeting place where both sides of our brain got together, politically. Since 1969 the arguments ebbed & flowed, and eventually everyone just moved on to drinking and laughing together. The quintessential American "dive bar". The next chapter was a ground up 15 month renovation under new owners in 2013. 45 years later, we honor the tradition of the original ethos and, even late at night, "dive" to that legacy. Yet we think that the Hawk is ready to move on from "69... make our own mark...honor the past...make it ours. The menu looks to our heritage, and celebrates it with Real Food. Our food comes from farms and ranches that do it old school, like Mother Nature intended. We serve free range birds from Fredricksburg, as well as hormone and antibiotic free beef from Creekstone Farms. Great ingredients like Duroc Pork allow us serve up true American Pub fare that satisfies without the fuss. Luncheon, Supper and Live Bluegrass Brunch on Sunday.
Bluegrass Brunch on Saturday, Sunday and Holidays. Large HD TV's for all sports, occasional live music, private parties and Capital Hill events are our specialty.
We focus on Capitol Hill events including fundraisers, corporate outings, wedding related events, celebrations and parties for the fun of it. Custom menus created by our Executive Chef and a full-time Events Concierge are all part of the package.
Parking for private events is possible at a facility across the street. Plenty of on-street parking is available on weekends and evenings.
