Co-Founded by Ryan Seelbach and Eric Lund, TAKODA Restaurant & Beer Garden is an American-style restaurant and rooftop bar in the heart of Shaw. Known for its wide draft beer selection, classic industrial aesthetic, and lively atmosphere, TAKODA has quickly made a name for itself as a D.C. destination since it opened in 2016.

Designed by Edit Lab at Streetsense, the two-story space was built from scratch in a 1920’s-era brick structure, originally a Federal Life Insurance building. Guests on the first floor will find two and four-person booths and seated tables, surrounded by the building’s original brick walls and wood ceiling beams. The roof deck is accented with hanging and potted plants around a horseshoe-shaped bar, and is partially covered with a canopy system. Removable windows allow for year-round eating and drinking with an outdoor feel.

Both floors are available for private and semi-private event reservations, the latter of which are offered at no minimum cost. For inquiries, please reach out directly to events@takodadc.com or fill out the events form on our website. Whether you’re looking to host a birthday bash or a corporate happy hour, we love hosting groups of all types and sizes and look forward to hearing from you.
