The Hamilton Hotel has opened Via Sophia, a southern Italian Osteria and cocktail bar perfect for everything from private dinners to events and parties.
The restaurant comes as a part of the hotel’s recent multimillion-dollar renovation, designed with a distinct mix of styles in mind throughout the space, from authentic European cutting boards to pieces of modern photography and abstract art pieces, all of which are a part of the restaurant’s custom art collection.
The space accommodates 96 guests inside, in addition to an outdoor patio with up to 30 additional seats. In addition to the restaurant and bar, the hotel also hosts the Society, an intimate setting with 14 seats. Nestled under dim lighting and an elegant interior, the Society is reminiscent of a parlor space, one that will bring about a more intimate feel than the restaurant and bar.
While Via Sophia is located in a hotel, it aims to reach all people in Washington D.C. From guests of Hamilton to locals looking for a great meal to passersby noticing the restaurant’s separate street access, Via Sophia’s lively energy welcomes all guests. The restaurant’s 880-pound, handmade in Italy Acunto wood-burning oven makes delicious Neapolitan pizza that is sure to be enjoyed amidst Via Sophia’s sophisticated and hospitable atmosphere no matter the day you’ve had.
