About Us

Welcome to The Admiral, a lively bar and restaurant located steps from Dupont Circle. We eagerly provide a vibrant bar scene, modern American fare, daily happy hour, a variety of private event spaces and a massive outdoor patio. 

The Admiral offers happy hour seven days per week from 4 to 7 pm, including half priced oysters and a variety of other generous food and drink specials. Happy hour is available throughout the entire restaurant and the patio. 

On sunny days we welcome you to join us on our sprawling, 2,000 square foot patio, which features a variety of dining, bar and private event spaces.

As with all Mission Group venues, The Admiral is your go-to spot for any and all types of events ranging from office happy hours to birthday parties to game watches to full scale corporate buy-outs. We treat each and every event with care and take pride in our lightning fast response time to inquiries.

On Friday and Saturday nights after dinner and game watches have ended, we welcome some of the city's best DJs to keep things going strong right until close. No dress code or bottle service, just an amazing high energy and unpretentious late night experience. 

Brunch is served from 11 am until 4 pm on weekends. A bottomless brunch option is available, with two hours of mimosas, bloodies, Bud Light, vodka soda grapefruit cocktails and an entree.

We love hosting all kinds of events! If you'd like to find out more information, please fill out our private event form and someone will get back to you very quickly.

The Admiral is owned and operated by Mission Group, a Washington DC-based hospitality company. Other Mission Group properties include Mission Navy Yard, Hawthorne and Mission Dupont.
