Travelers stopping at Dulles Airport’s Concourse B now have the opportunity to bask in the 85-year history of the Washington Redskins.
Global restaurateur HMSHost last week opened the Washington Redskins Burgundy & Gold Club. The full-service restaurant offers travelers a chef-driven menu and a festive football-themed atmosphere, from helmets and cleats to bobble heads, replica Lombardi trophies, and autographed jerseys from the team’s greatest players. A large video wall showcases the team’s history and illuminated transparent mesh images hang from the ceiling and feature the team’s legendary players inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
“The Burgundy & Gold Club is the perfect stop for traveling fans and HMSHost is thrilled to spotlight Washingtonians’ hometown team along with great food and drinks to travelers from around the world,” said HMSHost Vice President of Business Development.
Travelers also can shop at the adjacent retail store for official team merchandise and souvenirs.
The opening of the airport eatery comes one week before a bankruptcy court trustee was to accept preliminary bids on the auction of the defunct Hail & Hog restaurant property in One Loudoun. That Redskins-themed business closed this summer after just more than a year of operation.
