Ballston Quarter is quickly evolving into the experiential utopia it always aspired to be. After rolling out the first round of businesses in April and locking in 12 more restaurants in May, Forest City—the project’s developer—has just announced four new businesses joining the lineup, and they don’t disappoint.


Whino is an experiential art and wine venue that will occupy 6000 square feet. The venue will feature a state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen with a full-service bar, as well as an art gallery, retail space and full immersion murals.


Bash, an Arlington-based, boxing-focused interval workout studio, will open its second area location at Ballston Quarter. Bash’s classes uniquely combine boxing on a water-infused aqua bag with HIIT for a 45-minute full body workout.

DC Lash Bar

DC Lash Bar makes its Arlington debut, offering locals luxury eyelash extension, priming and tinting services from the comfort of a high-end studio.


Copa is a Spanish restaurant offering traditional tapas, Spanish beers and craft cocktails in a cozy, family-friendly atmosphere. Ballston marks Copa’s first-ever location, and comes from the team behind Bethesda’s Butchers Alley and Pescadeli.

Slated for completion this fall, Ballston Quarter will include 360,000 square feet of retail; an 18-concept, 25,000 square-foot food hall; a 22-story, 406-unit residential building and 176,000 square feet of office space.
