I probably forgot a few. I think a nightclub would do very well in Tyson's. Marketing surveys I've seen reveal a very young demographic for the workforce in the neighborhood, but the more I think about it, the more I wonder if the under 30 crowd even dances anymore.
Dodgeball seems to be popular, but maybe Susan Sarandon could come down here and open up a Tysons outpost of her ping pong club here.

I could see opening a few places once metro construction is completed. Until then, who would want to drive to Tyson's for fun? And who wants to negotiate the construction zone after having a few drinks?

Even though I work in Tysons, I always go to Cleveland Park after work on Fridays: the bars in Tysons are just too damn expensive! $8 a drink?? Screw that!

This is the "Greek"-style one (with the naked people murals)--the food is great and they have a wonderful happy hour.

It's kind of tucked between roads though; I think it's location is a bit hidden.

I think some kind of nightlife will develop after the construction.

there's eCities and Panache, but aside from that, there isn't much of a nightlife vibe. The key is to make it upscale, yet relatively affordable (no $20 cocktails, etc.) OP, you're right, if someone did bring it to Tyson's I believe they'd make a killing--there are tons of young professionals who spend a considerable amt. of time there and live nearby. So plenty of people in their 20-30s who would go, I know I would. Better get on that idea!!

Even though I am old and married, I realize you will need some bars/nightclubs at mid to high price points in order to make Tysons the true second city of the DMV region. Otherwise it will just be a sterile office park that empties after 6pm like Rosslyn and Crystal City.
