TAKODA Navy Yard is the second location of the popular D.C. hangout, offering the same vibrant bar experience as TAKODA Shaw, this time just a block away from Nationals Park. Replicating all of the fan-favorite features that made the original concept a staple of Washington nightlife, we aim to deliver a bustling rooftop bar environment with stunning views of the neighborhood. With 150% the square footage as in Shaw, there is even more room for you and your friends to enjoy your afternoon or evening with our wide selection of draft beers, fun tap cocktails, and delicious bar snacks from our kitchen.

Brought to you by Better Hospitality Group (BHG), the D.C.-based bar & restaurant company that is also behind Boardwalk Bar & Arcade and our casual wine bar and restaurant Easy Company at The Wharf, TAKODA Navy Yard establishes BHG’s signature festive atmosphere in a completely new neighborhood in our nation’s capital. Designed by //3877, the venue’s two levels recreate key architectural and design elements of TAKODA Shaw, such as the octagonal island bar on the entry-level and the white and teal tiling on the rooftop. The use of greenery and bold graphics throughout also pay homage to the original location and provide a sense of familiarity for guests while rich wood details and concrete floors enhance the classic-industrial feel. A canopy system on the rooftop provides shade and shelter from the elements and large, operable windows on the entry-level allow for year-round eating and drinking with an outdoor feel.

As the latest addition to the rapidly growing Capital Riverfront district of Washington, D.C., TAKODA Navy Yard is the perfect venue for hosting exciting parties. Our event spaces can accommodate both private and semi-private bookings, the latter of which are offered at no minimum cost. For inquiries, please reach out directly to or fill out the events form on our website. Whether you’re looking to host a birthday bash or a happy hour with your coworkers, we love hosting groups of all types and sizes and look forward to hearing from you!
