Ok...we've bought a condo in leesburg, wonderful community....extremely quiet which is good for living but not for nights out on the town. My husband and I are 28 years old, no kids yet, work a lot, but like to hang out when we have time off. We like social atmospheres where young professionals can hang out blow off some steam on a Friday and enjoy a nice beer or two or three...

Any suggestions?

Yeah, Leesburg isn't exactly a nightlife hotspot. There's a few random bars scattered here and there and I know a few people head out to Lansdowne where there apparently is a good bar but I can't speak from firsthand knowledge. To find a high concentration of twenty-somethings though, you may have to make a trek into Arlington, or at the very least Reston or Tysons Corner. Here's a pseudo-guide though to Happy Hours in the area:

You'll definately want head eastwards to find more happy-hour/night-life. Reston, Herndon, Tyson's Corner, Centreville, Falls Church, Dulles all have a handful of happy-hour places to socialize/relax. And these particular towns aren't terribly far from Leesburg either. I've also found that many of the good happy-hour places are somewhat on the "DL" (down-low) and you kind've learn about them by word of mouth.

Good Luck!

Default Happy Hour

I have visited a few in my day, but here is a link that may be more beneficial.

Might check out the Sweetwater Tavern in Sterling. South side of Rte 7 just west of Cascades Parkway. It's actually a (pretty good) restaurant, but they run their own micro-brewery there and so have a pretty healthy couple-of-beers scene going on as well. Nice outside patio overlooking the lake...
