Last August, the future looked uncertain for popular local nightspot Tysons Biergarten (8346 Leesburg Pike). But just a few months later, Biergarten isn’t just staying in place: it’s growing.

The Biergarten had been in-place on a month-to-month basis — a placeholder until the construction nearby extended into the lot. Owner Matt Rofougaran said the Biergarten will remain in place through the end of the year, if not longer.

But the extension doesn’t mean the Biergarten will remain stagnant. This past weekend, the Biergarten opened a new speakeasy-by-day and nightclub-by-night in the basement.

Where there were once German style long tables in the basement, fitting the German beerhall theme of the rest of the establishment, the room has been turned into a club called Room 7.

There are 50 beers available downstairs, both in bottles and cans, with a special table service being offered. The club is over-21 only and has a strict dress code.

During the speakeasy hours, the location is planned to offer “prohibition-type cocktails,” mainly custom house mixes with higher-end whiskey in a more relaxed atmosphere.

“I like the speakeasy trend,” Rofougaran said. “This is a good first-date spot. A lot of places you go are too loud and obnoxious.”

After a pause, Rofougaran added, “But then in the evenings, it’s going to get loud and obnoxious.”

Rofougaran said he’s also looking to get some of the big DJs from D.C. to make the trip across the Potomac to perform at the club. The club is also planned to host a variety of themed nights, like “Persian Night” on Thursdays or “Old School Hip Hop” on Fridays.

“It was time for a renovation,” Rofougaran said.

Rofougaran was frank that he hoped the change would generate sales, but also added that the higher end speakeasy and nightclub vibes were something he felt the Tysons area was lacking.

A grand opening celebration for Room 7 is planned for April 11.

Rofougaran also opened up a little about The Shipyard, a new location for the Biergarten planned for the Scotts Run development in Tysons East.

Early plans indicated that the new location near the McLean Metro station would replace the existing Biergarten, but according to Rofougaran, current plans have The Shipyard and Tysons Biergarten operating concurrently.

The Shipyard is planned to have four shipping containers modified into their own types of mini-restaurant or bar. One will be a branch of the Biergarten. Another will be an egg roll spot called Roll Bär. The other two have not been announced yet.

Tysons Biergarten is giving locals what may be their last opportunity to order beers from Michigan-based Bell’s Brewery, which recently stopped shipping to Virginia.

The Richard Times-Dispatch reported that the Michigan-based brewery’s departure from the Virginia market stems partly from an unresolved distribution dispute.

Bell’s Brewery, the 16th-largest brewery in the country and the seventh-largest craft brewery, announced on Feb. 1 that it would stop shipping its beer to the entire state after ceasing shipments to the Richmond-area market in December, according to the Times-Dispatch.

The final farewell to the brewery started at 11 a.m. today (Friday, March 15) at the Tysons Biergarten (8346 Leesburg Pike). The event goes until 2 a.m. Saturday.

Here’s what you can order:

  • Bell’s Amber
  • Flamingo Fruit Fight
  • Hopslam
  • Lager of Lakes
  • Bell’s 2 Hearted Ale
  • Expedition Stout
  • Kalamazoo Stout

Locals are encouraged to register for the free event.
