PX Hidden Bar in Alexandria VA

PX is a hidden bar located around the corner from its address 728 King Street in Alexandria, Virginia.  It is marked by a blue light and pirate flag.   When the blue light is on, it means the bar is open for its artisan cocktails.


A cool and relaxing speakeasy that takes you back to the 1920’s.  With many creative cocktails and flavorful drinks, this bar has quickly become one of my favorites in the DC area.  It has a limited menu of only nuts, olives or chicken/fish and chips.


The ambiance is romantic in that you are led up a candlelit stairway to a dark bar lit up by chandeliers and candles.  PX only has room for 25 patrons so book early online.  We went out with the office for a quiet drink after work one evening and on another occasion to celebrate my nieces recent engagement.  It is truly a beautiful and unique cocktail experience.

DC Law provides that:

No person shall import into the District, possess, display, offer for sale, trade, barter, exchange, or adoption, or give as a household pet any living member of the animal kingdom including those born or raised in captivity, except the following: domestic dogs (excluding hybrids with wolves, coyotes, or jackals), domestic cats (excluding hybrids with ocelots or margays), domesticated rodents and rabbits, captive-bred species of common cage birds, nonpoisonous snakes, fish, and turtles, traditionally kept in the home for pleasure rather than for commercial purposes, and racing pigeons (when kept in compliance with permit requirements).

As much as you insist that pigs really are clean, please remember: “Keeping, herding, and feeding of hogs, in pens or otherwise, within the District shall be considered a nuisance injurious to health.” Cows, horses and mules are okay, but only if kept in a stable, and only if the city’s Department of Health is notified.

So Unfortunately I am going to have to report back to my clients that they will not be able to own a micro pig in the District of Columbia.
