The bar & lounge offers approachable dining in a casual setting with a traditional Japanese Izakaya menu featuring Asian-inspired delights.
The Source at The Newseum is a unique location for both business and social events. With three distinct floors, The Source offers a myriad of private dining options. The private dining room, which can accommodate 45 guests for a seated event and 55 guests for a standing reception, is located on the subterranean level of the restaurant and is outfitted with complete AV capabilities and its own service station. The ground floor lounge is available for reception-style events and can accommodate 110 guests if the entire space is used and 40 guests if only the front area is needed. The upstairs main dining room can be divided or used in its entirety. The front section accommodates 52 guests for a seated event or 60 guests for a reception-style function. The main section of the dining room may only be used for seated functions and accommodates 50 guests. The back section of the dining room holds up to 60 guests for plated functions and 75 guests for receptions, while the semi-covered outdoor patio, which is available in temperate weather, can accommodate 18 guests for a seated dinner or 30 guests for a reception. The entire restaurant can hold up to 125 guests for a seated dinner and 300 guests for a reception function.
