Welcome to Mission!

Welcome to Mission Navy Yard, a lively bar and restaurant located across from Nationals Park and  three blocks from Audi Field. Known for our vibrant bar scene, daily happy hour, spacious private event and outdoor spaces and delicious Mexican food, we opened in July 2018. Our sister restaurant, Mission Dupont Circle, has been serving strong margaritas and tasty tacos since 2014. We refuse to believe that a restaurant only has one purpose: we aim to provide a bustling bar scene, comfortable dining and versatile private event spaces that can accommodate groups of all sizes. Our spaces are created to be welcoming for brunch, happy hour, dinner and private events, as well as those looking to rewind in a vibrant weekend late night atmosphere. 


The Venue

The first of our four bars is found in a two-story atrium that is designed with the feel of an outdoor courtyard. A sprawling staircase encircles a two-story tower that overlooks the plaza bar. DC’s largest bar, at 150-feet, anchors the second level, flanked by six garage doors that open onto large outdoor balconies. The main dining room, with its own bar and balconies, is also on the second level. A private dining and event space boasts the restaurant’s fourth bar.


We aim to provide a hospitable experience for groups of all sizes, budgets and types, from casual 15 person birthday parties to large scale corporate buyouts  The venue’s multiple spaces allow us to host events like birthdays, alumni events, late night wedding after-parties, corporate receptions, fundraisers, group brunches and dinners and more. To contact us about hosting an event, please visit our events page.

Our menu includes Mexican-inspired dishes from our Dupont Circle location, as well as new dishes like frito pie skillet and pasilla chile short rib. Roberto Hernandez, our executive chef, takes pride in creating fresh and delicious dishes. Our 16 draft lines include ten for beer, three for wine and Prosecco and three for margaritas and cocktails. We use only the highest quality tequilas and make every ingredient fresh in house.
