The Wharf’s newest music and entertainment venue has officially opened its doors. Union Stage is owned and operated by Jonathan, Daniel, and Luke Brindley, who also own Jammin’ Java in Vienna, Va. Located between Pearl Street Warehouse and Kirwin’s Irish Pub, Union Stage will offer programming for all ages, similar to Jammin’ Java, which includes entertainment from a variety of national, international, and local talent. The first-floor taproom opens at 5 p.m. daily and features 16 taps, an array of canned craft beers, and delicious New Jersey–style pizzas. All offerings available in the taproom can also be ordered downstairs in the main room, which has a standing capacity of 450 people. Although most shows will be ticketed, Union Stage will also host many free events. A list of upcoming shows and ticketing information can be found at unionstage.com.
On Wednesday, Feb. 7 from 4 to 7 p.m. the Southwest Neighborhood Assembly invites Southwest residents to come out to Union Stage and meet their fellow neighbors for happy hour (with our own drink special that evening). The event is space limited to 50 people at a time, so please stop by for a drink and a chat with neighbors and community leaders alike.
