If you enjoy exploring Old Town Alexandria, then you have almost certainly visited Augie's Mussel House. But did you know that Augie's is not only a restaurant and open-air beer garden but also serves as an event space and wedding venue?
Augie's Mussel House and Beer Garden's name derives from St. Augustine, the Patron Saint of Brewers and when you take a peek at their beer list, it's easy to understand why. 'Our menu, including our mussels and beer selections, is one-of-a-kind,' says Uyen Nguyen, Marketing Director. In addition to their delicious varieties of mussels and wide array of beverage options, the kitchen staff at Augie's prides themselves on their traditional Belgium cuisine that is prepared with a modern twist.
Beyond the food and drink that has made Augie's such a beloved stop along King Street for locals and visitors alike, the venue is home to a large outdoor patio complete with communal tables, 13 televisions and a 133' projector screen. There is ample space for entertainment and after dark the patio is lit by beautifully strung lights, creating the perfect dance floor.
Augie's Mussel House offers private events and weddings for groups of all sizes and always welcomes pets to share in on celebrations! With the patio and indoor space available, the team at Augie's will work with each couple to ensure that the special day they envision will become a reality. If you like the idea of saying 'I do' with an Old Town backdrop and historic charm, this is the venue for you.
