The Perch is expected to open in Summer 2021.

“We couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the growing development around the Capital One Center,” said Josh Cromwell, Starr Hill’s VP of Finance and Retail. “The Perch is such a unique space and when we were approached about bringing to life a rooftop biergarten and amphitheater concept, we couldn’t turn it down. There will be tremendous energy at Capital One Center and we’re proud to bring Starr Hill into the DC Metro Area.”

“Capital One Center is thrilled to welcome one of the most-recognized breweries in Virginia, Starr Hill, to The Perch,” Jonathan Griffith, Managing Director, Capital One Center. “Starr Hill’s brand and reputation within the craft beer community, as well as their experience in the live music scene, will further establish The Perch as a unique destination for Tysons and the Greater Washington region.”

In addition to Starr Hill Biergarten, The Perch will feature food trucks, a games plaza, sculpture garden, and a dog park. The Perch sits atop of Capital One Hall, a corporate and performing arts center opening this fall, and adjacent to the Watermark Hotel, Capital One’s corporate lodging facility, opening in late 2021.  In total, Capital One Center will have over 250,000 sq. ft. of retail space.
