Brabo Tasting Room is available for events utilizing the indoor and/or outdoor space. Receptions are the best fit for this space as only existing-set furniture is available. Deep booths run the length of the Tasting Room for comfy seating options and a large community table dominates the center of this cozy venue- perfect for display appetizers and the zinc-topped bar provides a chic accent for beverage service. The atmosphere is convivial and neighborhood-like with the open hearth oven on display and the historic building lending weight and a sense of occasion to every event. Perfectly captures the Alexandria spirit!
