Epicure is a family-owned and collectively-led arts space, restaurant and lounge in Fairfax, VA.  We are home to a vibrant and affirming creative community spanning the greater DC Metro area, rooted in a culture of inclusivity, respect and kindness that cultivates learning,  invites vulnerability, and waters the seeds of artistic growth. Epicure's menu features beer, wine, specialty cocktails and mediterranean dishes with a modern twist, as well as gourmet pizza offerings - with many options for our vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free friends.  Epicure's stage showcases the talents of emerging and established musicians, poets, storytellers, visual and culinary artists alike.  We are a cross-cultural, international and intergenerational space and aim to center marginalized voices and talents in order to create a braver, more equitable space for everyone.  


Some of our favorite events include...


Open Mic Nights

For over seven years, we have held a weekly open mic night on Thursdays.  These are nights where anyone can drop in, sign up their name and play two songs. Signups are on site only, at the times listed below.


7pm-10pm (Signups at 5pm)

10pm-close (Signups at 9pm)


Kitchen Creatives

Once a month, Epicure features a friend with a passion for culinary arts.  How does it work?  They come up with a vision and menu, together we try it, and then our staff facilitates the process of sharing that with the greater community via a themed dinner party complete with music and other little touches.   Interested in participating? Send us an email!


Jazz Nights

Join us for Jazz music every Sunday night.  Every third and last Sunday, there is also an opportunity to hop on and join the fun 

Every Sunday 6pm -10pm



Trivia nights are weekly on Tuesdays, from 7-9pm.  The winning team gets a $30 Epicure gift card!  :)
