Ballston Quarter, the long-anticipated and much-needed makeover of the Ballston mall, will be opening soon. It will feature 18 restaurants in the 25,000 square feet food hall known as Quarter Market. The list includes Bartaco, Buredo, Cecina Al Volo, French Exit, Sloppy Mamma’s and more.
In addition to being a foodie destination, Ballston Quarter will be for entertainment, including hands-on cooking classes, live-action entertainment venue and an area for young families to play and learn.
One of the experiential tenants is 5 Wits, which bills itself as a cutting-edge, live-action entertainment that immerses you in realistic, hands-on adventures. Instead of watching an action movie, it’s like being in the movie — so you get to be your own action hero!
Making its DC debut will be Punch Bowl Social - a bar, restaurant and entertainment space with bowling lanes, bocce ball, private karaoke rooms and a 360-degree bar.
If you are thinking of buying a condo nearby, you have plenty of options in Ballston and adjacent Virginia Square.
