The Light Horse is located in the center of Old Town Alexandria right on historic King Street. We are halfway between the waterfront and the King Street Metro stop. The Old Town Trolley stop is right in front of our doors! The upstairs bar features a more boisterous scene that serves as equal parts neighborhood gathering place, sports bar, and late-night destination. The downstairs restaurant is now open! Not eligible for takeout dining.
