A Dozen Beers, Imported Cider, and Chili to Die for - The Barns Has So Much More Than Music!
This post is from T.J. Pluck, Director, Concessions, and Mark McElroy, Assistant Director, Concessions.
The Barns at Wolf Trap is known for its diverse musical offerings, the natural setting, and the way sounds reverberate throughout the building. The Barns also has a rich history and perhaps even a secret or two. One “secret” in particular is starting to spread…
The Barns has a full bar and an extensive food menu that's sure to complement any performance! The bar opens 90 minutes before each show and has many delicious options. Since it's located on-site, you have plenty of time to enjoy your meal and you won’t miss your show.
Whether you are looking for an appetizer, sandwich, dessert, or something to simply warm you up (or cool you down), The Barns’s menu has options to appease even the pickiest eater. My personal favorite is The Barns’s chili. Sorry, I’m not at liberty to divulge the recipe (another Barns “secret”) but it is FANTASTIC. If the thought of delicious chili doesn’t make your mouth water, here’s the full food menu.
Need something to whet your whistle? We feature many beers – local, domestic and imported! On draft we have a Lagunitas IPA from California and a local Lost Rhino Pacific Pilsner from just down the road - Ashburn, Virginia. We also offer six domestic bottled beers, six imported bottled beers, and even an imported dry cider! For the wine connoisseur, we offer seven white wine and eight red wine options. And just when you think we can’t fit anything else behind the bar, we also offer a full liquor bar – and our talented bartenders would be happy to create one of their signature cocktails for you. Not drinking? We also have soft drinks, coffee, cappuccino, lattes and fruit smoothies! The full drink menu is located here.
When you’re planning your evening, keep in mind we have tables inside and outside for seating. If you’d like to finish your meal and drinks in the bar, not a problem! Music is piped into the bar once the performance begins, so you won’t be rushed to finish your meal. But don’t forget – food and beverages can be taken into The Barns, so you can enjoy them during the performance too.
We’re looking forward to seeing you in the bar at The Barns. Arrive early since seating is limited – and bring your appetite.
