Council to Decide on More Outdoor Seating for Vola’s Dockside Grill

After seven years on the Alexandria waterfront, Vola’s Dockside Grill is set for an expansion. On Tuesday, City Council will consider adding 30 outside seats for the restaurant’s outdoor seating area.

The location at 101 N. Union Street is notable since it is a highly traveled area of the waterfront and is next door to the Torpedo Factory Art Center and Waterfront Park. The restaurant currently has 87 outdoor seats, and the proposal calls on 114 outdoor seats.

Vola’s is owned by Alexandria Restaurant Partners, which also owns Mia’s Italian Kitchen and The Majestic.

Upon approval, the license would be in effect from April 1, 2020, and end on March 31, 2023. The annual fee to be paid would be $50,386.09 in the first year, $51,895.90 in the second year and $53,457.78 for the third year.
