University Row has four different pick up bar locations, to help you leave from your most convenient spot!

Each has its own unique features, including:

  • $5 Grab & Go Sandwiches, $4 Screwdrivers, or $14 Make your own Mimosas at Whitlow’s on Wilson in Clarendon
  • $19.99 Bottomless Brunch with beverages at Union Pub on Capitol Hill
  • $9.99 Breakfast Buffet & $3.25 Mimosas at Crystal City Sports Pub, or
  • A value buffet & $3 Rail Drinks at Madhatter in Dupont.

Each has set up an extensive pre-event food and drink special list, which can be viewed in detail on the Breakfast Pre-Gaming page.

The best post-Row party, however, is without question going to be at Whitlow’s on Wilson, where we will have exclusive access to the Sand Bar, special drink pricing and music, and a party that will go all night!  Invite your friends to meet you there – they will get the specials as well!


Greatly improved University Row Catering in 2017!

Six and a half hour premium open bar, fully stocked buffet, and fully staffed bars – all day!

After reviewing guest survey results from last year, University Row listened, and made catering change!

The 2017 Catering Partner is Savory Fare Catering, a five star quality vendor based in Warrenton, Virginia. For a look at what food and beverages features they have in store for us at University Row this year, check out their Catering Menu on the University Row website.
