Georgetown Basketball History: The Tombs
Return to Index

Since its founding in 1962, The Tombs restaurant has always held a special place in the hearts of Hoya fans everywhere. The bar and grill below the landmark 1789 Restaurant is decorated throughout with memorabilia of Georgetown's football and crew teams, and is the home for monthly a cappella performances by another Georgetown tradition, The Chimes.

The Tombs remains a popular student and alumni destination after a home game, Verizon Center's distance notwithstanding, as well as a prime location to watch away games. There always seems to be a wait, but the restaurant's appeal for Hoya fans is no less diminished, nearly 50 years years since its founding.
