Urbano 116

Fresh Approach To A Traditional Café

Located within a 19th century building on Old Town, Alexandria’s main artery, Urbano 116 has a contemporary design. This modern Mexican café features live music and a sophisticated atmosphere.

Urbano 116 is located on King Street in the heart of Old Town Alexandria. The nearly 4,000 SF Mexican restaurant seats more than 160 diners. HGA provided architecture, interior design, and lighting design services for the project.

The building that houses the restaurant was built in 1885 by brothers John and Harry Aitechson to serve as a machine shop and storage. In 1975, the property was used as part of the Small Mall and has since been adapted for various retail uses throughout the years. The design features a contemporary approach to complement the Mexican café cuisine.
