Arlington For off the beaten path fun in Arlington, consider an evening out at the 2900 block of Columbia Pike. With Thai food, film, comedy and live music all in one convenient location, make it a date night to remember.
Start your evening with Thai fare at Bangkok 54, where select appetizers are at a discount throughout happy hour. Make sure to have an authentic Thai beer with your meal, as the light taste of South East Asian brew pairs with menu items. Enjoy your time, but be aware the evening is only getting started.
The next destination is the Arlington Draft House, where screenings of discounted films begin at 7:30 p.m. The experience includes table service with a full restaurant and drink menu. Stand up comedy is a prominent feature, with amateur and professional comics only too happy to entertain.
After the show, head across the street for a casual drink at P. Brennans Irish Pub. Live Irish music is a staple on Wednesday nights beginning at 8 .pm., and the live tunes of acoustic guitar complements an evening of merriment Fridays at 9:30 p.m.
Although street parking is available, with further spaces in the rear of Bangkok 54 and the Arlington Draft House, taxis patrol the area regularly — the best mode of transport if alcohol consumption is a part of the fun.
