About Us

The Admiral is Mission Group's newest bar and restaurant, the fourth venue that the company has opened since 2014. It features four bar areas and one of the city's largest patios, a sprawling, 2,000 square foot landscape looking out directly to historic Dupont Circle.

The Admiral offers happy hour seven days per week from 4 pm to 7 pm, including half priced oysters and a variety of other generous food and drink specials. The dinner menu features modern American fare, including a variety of New England-style seafood options as well as a few southern touches.

As with all Mission Group venues, we seek to be your go-to spot for any and all types of events ranging from casual 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 will begin in early 2020 and include a bottomless option. Groups are always welcome and the patio bar is the perfect spot for post-brunch drinks.

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 hospitality company that develops, owns and operates leading high volume bar and restaurant concepts in the Washington DC area
