The design of Silver Diner’s first location in Washington, DC capitalizes on the prominent corner location across from Nationals Park by delivering a flagship interpretation of the iconic Silver Diner brand. The brand’s first dual concept features Silver Diner on the first floor and on the second floor introduces Silver Social, a sophisticated bar and lounge, which provides stunning views to the ballpark from its expansive terrace. The creation of Silver Social establishes a whole new dynamic and energy for the Silver Diner family of brands. Offering a unique experience, the design successfully ties together the dual bar and restaurant concept in one location, while remaining true to the brand’s timeless, welcoming, and approachable spirit.
