It is a fact that more business gets done in bars and restaurants than around conference tables. This was so true in the late 18th century when Gadsby’s Tavern and City Hotel served as a popular location for local organizations to meet and conducted their business.
Individuals would get together to discuss issues, dance, or watch a theatrical performance. Gadsby’s welcomed several rather famous names into its establishment, including Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, James Monroe, and many other notable figures of the time. Today, the Tavern and the Hotel make up a museum that showcases Alexandria’s hospitality and the lifestyles of the city’s former inhabitants.
Visit the museum and have a look at the displayed artifacts of the famous guests and learn about their customs, clothing, and the food they liked. The museum is located at 134 N. Royal Street, Alexandria.
