Marvin is a classic bistro located in Washington, DC’s historical Shaw neighborhood which combined the soul of the neighborhood and the café society of Belgium. Here, you can find an interesting mix of classic Belgian moulles-frites served along side southern-style shrimp and grits. The combination is a tribute to Shaw native, Marvin Gaye, who spent two years in Ostend, Belgium.

Two of the other attractions at Marvin is the rooftop beer garden boasting over 30 Belgian ales and a luxurious lounge with an extensive bar menu.

Adding to this experience is a groovy mix of funk, soul, ska, and jazz created by Thievery Corporation’s very own Eric Hilton. Visit for more information.
