Tysons may not have the liveliest nightlife at the moment, but that could soon change as more late-night restaurants and places to hang out open. “Tysons After Dark” will highlight a different spot every week.
TenPenh serves up contemporary Asian fare with wallet-friendly happy hour bites and drinks.
Around 6:30 p.m. on a Thursday, the bar area was mostly packed with groups of people ordering small bites from the menu, which features a range of Asian cuisines spanning Japan, China, Korea, Thailand, the Philippines and Vietnam.
Happy hour goers can choose from a wide selection of drinks and $5, $6 and $7 bites. Drinks offered include signature cocktails like the Asian Mojito, Matcha Mule and Frozen Mai Tai, along with $5 draft beer, wine, sake and champagne. Lamb pot stickers, pork belly bao buns and Filipino BBQ pork skewers are some of the 13 small bites on the menu.
The happy hour menu runs from 3-7 p.m. Monday-Friday and for drinks only from 4-7 p.m. on Saturday.
The restaurant itself is inspired by the layout of a traditional Chinese courtyard house and even includes a contemporary moon gate. Each room has its own character, from the outdoor courtyard to the bar with its earth-toned wall decor.
“TenPenh Tysons evokes the sense of a private home of a sophisticated westerner who has lived in Asia and absorbed the serenity of its highest aesthetic: calm, uncluttered, and inviting,” the website says.
Located at 7900 Westpark Drive, the restaurant is less than a 10-minute walk from the Tysons Corner Metro station.
TenPenh is open 5:30-10 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 5:30-11 p.m. on Friday and 4-11 p.m. on Saturday. The restaurant is closed on Sunday.

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.
He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
