Sydney’s Restaurant and Lounge announced that they are now open for business in Shirlington, Virginia.
The new establishment serves delicious American and Southern cuisine, some of it from family recipes, and has a well-stocked bar, with plenty of specialty beers available, and expertise behind the bar.
Elton Lewis, one of the owners of the new restaurant, says, “We’re proud and excited to launch our new restaurant and lounge in Shirlington, and by extension, in Northern Virginia and DC. We love this area, and love the people here, and look forward to bringing them our special take on a great night out.
“We’ve done everything we could to make this place special – the menu items, some of which are not available at most places in the DC/NOVA area, the music you hear during the day, the music you hear when bands appear on stage at night or when a DJ is on duty, the selection of beers you get at the bar, the happiness and well-being of our customers, etc. We’ve chosen our service staff and our cooks carefully, always with an eye towards providing great food and drink, and a convivial atmosphere for our customers here.”
Lewis adds, “And part of our reason for being, one of the drivers for opening this venue, is our intent to have jazz and blues entertainers here on a regular basis. I mean, having a drink, a good meal, and listening to some straight-ahead jazz performed live is a fantastic combination, and we want more people to experience that here in this area. That’s one of our goals at Sydney’s.
“On days when there’s no live music, we want people to come in and be able to relax and enjoy themselves with their friends.
“And on days or nights when the big game is on, we are ready with lots of TVs for your viewing pleasure.
“Sydney’s is the kind of place we want to hang at, and drink at, and listen to music at, and we’re inviting everyone to come and check it out and see if it’s also your kind of place. We think you’ll love it.”
