Round House is rethinking the “fourth wall,” reinventing fast-casual dining and post-show drinks, and expanding the patron experience in our brand new, reimagined theatre.

THE FOURTH WALL BAR & CAFÉ features a contemporary menu and full-service bar open pre-show. Our locally-sourced offerings include thematic cocktails, and specialties celebrating the work on our stage. Following our safety protocols, food will be pre-packaged and you will see designated areas for eating or drinking in the lobby and café.

Welcome to Round House Theatre’s Fourth Wall Bar and Café, and the inaugural National Capital New Play Festival! We are excited to present a menu featuring items inspired by our rotating World Premiere productions, 
it’s not a trip it’s a journey and “We declare you a terrorist…”
For it’s not a trip it’s a journey, we found inspiration in highlighting products owned and produced by women (identified in the menu with *), as well as classic Americana offerings geographically linked to a cross-country road trip.

For “We declare you a terrorist…”, we have chosen items and flavors from Eastern Europe, the Baltics, and the Caucusus. These include homemade borscht based on a Ukrainian recipe, sweets from Turkey, a wine from Georgia, and a vodka produced in Latvia.

We hope you find something exciting to try, and we are happy to answer any questions you may have. Cheers!
