Food and Entertainment

The Market Common Clarendon shopping center features recognizable names like Crate & Barrel and Apple, but the Clarendon itself is best known for its homegrown, local businesses. It is this combination of local and national names that results in an extremely diverse retail and restaurant scene. Clarendon is also unique to Arlington for its sense of community. The Clarendon Alliance is an organization that unites the people and businesses of the community. Large events like the annual Mardi Gras celebration, and smaller weekly activities like the farmers markets give the residents a greater connection to the community. Clarendon Day, is an early autumn festival that brings together local restaurants and retail stores with rides and games. Clarendon also hosts the CSC Invitational, a professional and amateur bicycle race.

If those events and activities aren’t enough to draw prospective buyers, than the food scene will. Clarendon is well known for its lively bars and good food. Restaurants range from Peruvian to authentic Vietnamese cuisine. Some choice Vietnamese restaurants are remnants from the “little Saigon” that was formed in the late 1970’s. Other popular Clarendon establishments include:  Clarendon Grill, Eventide, Lyon Hall, Liberty Tavern and Cava. Clarendon’s nightlife is generally targeted towards the young professional. Clarendon Ballroom is popular nightclub that many frequent. Clarendon also houses a hip music scene. Places like Iota often show local bands.

Main roads also have bike lanes and wide sidewalks, making travel safer. Like most of the Arlington neighborhoods, Clarendon also has Capital Bikeshare stations and public bicycle racks.
