A Redskins-themed, if not Redskins-named, restaurant is coming to Loudoun County this spring.
Hail & Hog Kitchen and Tap is set to open in the One Loudoun Downtown District in Ashburn, Virginia near the team's headquarters and facilities.
Hail & Hog is the newest NFL-themed restaurants operated by G.R.E.A.T. Grille Group (g3). Other g3 restaurants include the Houston Texans Grille and the Indianapolis Colts Grille.
It's worth noting that those other restaurants bear the actual name of their teams. That's not the case for the restaurant celebrating Washington's football franchise; Native American tribes and organizations, as well as the federal Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, have claimed the Redskins' name is derogatory.
Instead, this restaurant's name nods to the team’s fight song and the nickname given to the offensive line during the winning seasons of the 1980s and 1990s.
“We are excited to partner with g3 to create a first-class venue where Redskins fans can come together with friends and family and celebrate the team’s history,” Redskins Executive Vice President Terry Bateman said in a release.
The restaurant will span more than 12,000 square feet on two levels. The first floor is food and drink focused, and will also be home to a radio and television broadcast studio. When not in use, the space can be reserved for private events.
The second floor will have wall-to-wall 4K TVs inside, and a fire pit and rooftop bar outside.
Hail & Hog will be available to rent for private events. The Redskins say they will host a variety of events, including some press conferences, there too.
