Patio dining in DC

In the everyday humdrum of life, somewhere between home and work, we all need a ‘third place’ to go – outside of the commute and away from our couches. We all need that place where we can escape the stresses of everyday responsibilities but still connect to our local community and the outside world.

At Open City, you become part of an eclectic mix of characters and ambiance. We offer a space outside of typical Washington political partisanship and the battle of tourist vs. local on the metro escalators. We pride ourselves in being travelers’ home-away-from-home while being part of what defines home to many in the DC community.

We believe that everyone – no matter your religion, politics, gender, race, or nationality – everyone just wants to enjoy a tasty and affordable meal with friends. Open City is a place and a state of mind – a place for everyone, and something that the Woodley Park community can call their own.
