Clarendon

Ask any Arlington 20- or 30-something where to go on a Saturday night, and Clarendon is undoubtedly the answer with its 30 sit-down restaurants and 10 bars. With options including craft cocktails, locally-roasted coffee, rooftop lounges, ramen bars, and a dance hall, the neighborhood is the place to see and be seen. The lively vibe draws customers from around the region to supplement the strong demographics of the residential base, which is the wealthiest cluster in Arlington’s commercial districts with a median household income of $132,000, nearly 2.5 times the national mark. Close to 90% of these residents possess at least a four-year college degree, while more than half are in the 20 39 age range.

Not to be overlooked, Clarendon offers a huge retail presence as well. The Apple Store is here. So is Crate & Barrel, Lilly Pulitzer, Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s. Where else can you find a Serbian speakeasy, the latest fashions, artisan ice cream, and one of the newest and hottest microbreweries in the region – all just steps from each other? They're here in Clarendon.
