More details have been unveiled about the long-anticipated Washington Redskins-themed restaurant planned at One Loudoun in Ashburn.
Hail & Hog Kitchen & Tap will open in late spring, the team announced last week.
The décor will showcase the team’s 84-year history, including three Super Bowl wins and five National League Championships. The name is intended to pay homage to the team’s longstanding anthem, “Hail to the Redskins,” along with a tribute to its storied offensive line of the 1980s and early ’90s, “the Hogs.”
“The ability to connect with the community in a very real way through Hail & Hog is a natural extension for us,” Terry Bateman, Redskins Executive Vice President, stated in announcing the plans.
The team is working with The G.R.E.A.T. Grille Group, known as g3 Restaurants, which also developed Eddie George’s Grille 27 in Columbus, OH, Jerome Bettis’ Grille 36 in Pittsburg, PA, the Indianapolis Colts Grille and the Houston Texans Grille.
The Ashburn restaurant will include more than 12,000 square feet on two levels. The downstairs will feature a bar showcasing hand-crafted cocktails along with an extensive wine list and local craft beers. The first floor also will be home to a radio/television studio designed for the Redskins to broadcast radio and television programming. When not in use the studio will be available to be reserved for small private events. The second floor is designed for sports fanatics, with wall-to-wall high-definition televisions and a rooftop bar with a fire pit.
The Redskins plan to hold a variety of events at the restaurant including select press conferences.
“This is an awesome project for g3 Restaurants,” said company President Marc Buehler. “We cannot wait to debut our chef-inspired American fare menu paired with awesome drinks in this really spectacular facility. We have gone to extraordinary lengths to tie the Redskins brand into this truly fan friendly one-of-a-kind experience.”
