Ready to Get Your March Madness On?

We are. As the time draws near for the NCAA’s March Madness to be center court at downtown DC’s very own basketball mecca, Capital One Arena.

Located just a few walkable blocks from Capital One, Farmers & Distillers is ready to host your pre-gaming gathering, where you can enjoy our baby macs, shake & fries and more; or let us serve as your post-game spot for a food and drink lineup of our starters and entrées, beers on tap, and handmade cocktails made with our award-winning Founding Spirits, or just cap off the evening with one of our tasty desserts.

We recommend making your Farmers & Distillers reservation now, as the NCAA’s 2019 Men’s Basketball Regional Championship, better known as March Madness, arrives Friday, March 29 and Sunday, March 31 at Capital One Arena.

One of DC’s favorite hometown teams, Georgetown University, is hosting for the sixth time and we can’t wait for the fun to begin when some of the best of the NCAA’S East Regional teams descend on downtown DC. Our Farmers & Distillers crew is ready to welcome NCAA fans, and maybe even a player or two, during March Madness weekend.

Score your March Madness tickets here. And come see us at Farmers & Distillers.

If you and your party are not heading to the arena, but looking to gather to watch the games, email our group dining specialist here: to reserve our General’s Parlor Private Dining Room. Tucked away on the lower level of Farmers & Distillers, our private dining room comes complete with a television. We can offer prix fixe menus, served or arranged buffet style, tailored to provide the perfect meal + gaming experience for you and your guests.

Or have Farmers & Distillers delivered directly to your door. Our full menu is available for delivery from Caviar and DoorDash. If you are outside the downtown DC area, no worries… we have you covered. We offer delivery from our Founding Farmers sibling restaurants in Potomac, MD; Reston and Tysons, VA; and King of Prussia, as well as Farmers Fishers Bakers. Or come by Farmers & Distillers, or any of our restaurants, to pick up our food to go.

We also offer full-service catering if you are hosting a group and want to leave the work to us.

Let the madness begin.

Let Farmers & Distillers Wine and Dine You

You are officially invited to our delightful Wine Dinner at Farmers & Distillers on Thursday, June 22nd at 7 pm. Beverage Director Jon Arroyo joins winemaker Ben Jordan of Early Mountain Vineyards for an exquisite six-course dinner in our exclusive private dining room, the General’s Parlor.

Prepare to be wined and dined as we serve an array of decadent offerings from our Farmers & Distillers menu, including Kung Pao Chicken Dumplings, Crunchy Ahi Tuna Bites, Dry-Aged NY Strip, and Parmesan Grits, and top it all off with our tasty Affogato dessert featuring house-made ice cream. Each course will be paired with a wine from Early Mountain Vineyards.

Farmers Restaurant Group, which owns and operates Farmers & Distillers, collaborated with the talented team of vintners at Early Mountain Vineyards in Madison, VA to handcraft our Virginia Vines Rosé. As our video tour of their vineyards reveals, their commitment to sustainable agriculture was a natural fit for all of our restaurants. We are delighted to bring more of their delicious wine to our guests for this special evening.

Tickets for the Wine Dinner evening are available for purchase here for $120, pricing includes tax and tip. Space is limited, so if you are hoping to join us, buy your ticket(s) today. If you can’t make it but want to join us at Farmers & Distillers for a meal paired with our delicious wine offerings another time, we always recommend making reservations.
