Welcome to TAKODA Navy Yard, the eagerly awaited second location of the beloved D.C. hangout, conveniently nestled just a block away from Nationals Park. Building upon the thriving bar experience of TAKODA Shaw, our mission is to bring you a vibrant rooftop bar environment, offering breathtaking views of the neighborhood. Rest assured, we've meticulously recreated all the fan-favorite elements that have made the original concept a true gem of Washington nightlife.

Prepare to be captivated by the expansive space, boasting 150% more square footage than Shaw. This means there's ample room for you and your friends to indulge in a fantastic afternoon or evening, savoring a wide selection of draft beers, inventive tap cocktails, and delectable bar snacks crafted in our kitchen.

TAKODA Navy Yard proudly comes to you courtesy of Better Hospitality Group (BHG), the esteemed D.C.-based bar & restaurant company behind renowned establishments like Boardwalk Bar & Arcade and the casual wine bar and restaurant, Easy Company at The Wharf. By making its mark in this vibrant new neighborhood, TAKODA Navy Yard is an embodiment of BHG's signature festive atmosphere, woven into the very fabric of our nation's capital.

Impeccably designed by //3877, our venue's two levels artfully capture the key architectural and design elements from TAKODA Shaw. From the inviting octagonal island bar on the entry-level to the elegant white and teal tiling adorning the rooftop, we've ensured a sense of nostalgia and familiarity for our cherished guests. Throughout the space, lush greenery and bold graphics pay homage to our original location, welcoming you with open arms and a warm embrace. 

The fusion of rich wood details and polished concrete floors enhances the classic-industrial ambience, creating a one-of-a-kind setting that's both inviting and captivating. And, of course, the rooftop boasts a convenient canopy system, providing shade and shelter to protect you from the elements, while the entry-level's large operable windows offer a seamless connection to the outdoors, allowing for year-round dining and imbibing.
