Owner description: Discover Alexandria’s five-star hotel of the 18th century! Gadsby’s Tavern Museum consists of the c. 1785 tavern and the 1792 City Tavern and Hotel. The buildings were constructed by John Wise, but made famous by John Gadsby. Mr. Gadsby’s establishment was the center of political, business, and social life in Alexandria and hosted the likes of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. Today the Museum offers tours, programs and special events.

The tavern and the history of the area are so incorporated into the building, the history, and the surrounding interplay within the town and the Revolutionary era

The tours are very inexpensive and the staff is polite and knowledgeable about the history. They have many rooms set up how they would have been back in the colonial time period. Great Stop!

If you love history, this is your spot! Exquisite to know you're eating where George Washington once frequented and danced! Beautiful place to wander, good food.

It's small, it's fast, it's cheap -- and George Washington celebrated his birthday there! If you like American history and have a good imagination, then you will probably enjoy this little museum.
