Metropolitan Hospitality Group announced the expansion of its CIRCA brand to the Capitol Riverfront. MHG is the first company to officially take space in the highly anticipated 99 M Street, SE building being developed by Skanska. This will be MHG’s fourth CIRCA location in the Washington, D.C., area with locations already in Dupont Circle, Foggy Bottom, and Clarendon, Virginia. MHG also owns two other concepts—Open Road and TRIO Grill—located in Merrifield, Virginia.

CIRCA at Navy Yard will include outdoor seating and offer seasonal, creative American fare, a vibrant community bar scene with happy hour, a wide selection of beers, handcrafted cocktails, and a carefully curated wine list. 

“We selected 99M for our next CIRCA because it is at the heart of the vibrant, mixed-use Capitol Riverfront neighborhood,” says Matthew Carlin, president of MHG. The high traffic location of Skanska’s LEED Gold certified building is just steps from both Navy Yard-Ballpark Metrorail entrances.
