|Voted Northern Virginia's Best Pizza & We Deliver! *
Welcome to Bugsy's, home of Old Town Alexandria's original sports bar and favorite pizza. The owners, Bryan (Bugsy) and Lindy Watson take great pride in being a part of the Old Town restaurant scene and have been operating at this location since 1983.
6 months after opening Armand's Chicago Pizzeria, (renamed Bugsy's in 1998), at 111 King Street in Alexandria, Virginia, Bryan and Linday Watson opened the upstairs as a sports bar. Originally named the Penalty Box, it was an immediate hit and natural extension to the pizzeria as one could have the same delcious pizza while watching sporting events on the many tv's in the space, and being hosted by Bryan Watson. The Caps practiced in Mt. Vernon then, and the bar became a regular hangout for the players and sports fans alike. The unique bar became an anchor for hockey in the Alexandria area. The Washington Capitals organization was and is still very supportive of the bar.
a player in the National Hockey League for 17 years, the sports bar is
a natural choice for Bryan. He began his career as a right defenseman
for the Montral Canadians in 1962 and found his way to the Washington
Capitals in 1976, retiring in 1979. Before coming to Washington, Bugsy
spent 5 1/2 seasons with the Pittsburgh Penguins and 5 seasons with the
Detroit Red Wings. Bugsy was a fierce competitor on the ice and led the
league in penalty minutes for several years. Also a renowned prankster,
Watson got the nickname Bugsy from teammates Gordie Howe and Andy Bathgate
in 1966 during the famous semi final Stanley Cup series when he drove
both the opposition and his own teammates insane for very different reasons!
says, "We are crazy about hockey here but we're equally crazy about
all sports. The bar is a major draw for baseball and NFL fans, college
alumni for alma mater games, World Cup Soccer, Olympics and more".
Bugsy's, Bryan strongly believes that a dedicated staff working productively
and happily is the only way to bring the best results to his customers.
In addition, Bryan and Lindy are especially proud of their pledge to use
only the highest quality, and freshest ingredients in all their dishes.
Each meal is prepared on premises daily. This committment to excellence
allows them to serve delicious and unique pizzas, pasta dishes, burgers,
specialty sandwiches and salads!

a delicious meal and lots of fun browsing through their prized collection
of sports memorabilia on the wall upstairs at Bugsy's Sports Bar!
