Bey Lounge Transitions Into Specialized Grocery Store in Vienna

After Bey Lounge got in trouble over the Town of Vienna’s noise ordinance, the location’s owners decided to pivot and convert the space into a grocery store.

The new supermarket (303 NE Mill Street) opened around a month ago, according to a store clerk. It offers customers a variety of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean fare, including dates, sesame paste and dried garbanzo beans.

The owners are trying to replace the current “Bey Lounge” sign with one that says “LB Food Market,” according to town documents.

Customers can enter through Wooden Bakery next door and are free to stop for a snack while they shop since both establishments are owned by the same people.

The bakery and store are both open 9 a.m-midnight Sunday-Thursday and from 9 a.m. until 2 a.m. Friday-Saturday.

Though open for operation, the store is not yet fully stocked yet and staff said it will be at least three weeks before they are ready for a grand opening.

Tysons Reporter checked out the location and saw that though most of the dry goods seem to be stocked, the freezers and refrigerators in the back are still empty.
