There is no denying that A-Town and the newly opened Don Tito have been a very welcome sense of fresh (and fun) air on the Arlington bar scene. Just like the hot spots themselves, the hospitality mastermind behind these venues has also quickly become the most popular guy in town. One only has to chat with Scott Parker for a few minutes to understand why; aside from being friendly and engaging, he has a vision for how the Virginia hospitality industry should be and is actively on the front lines making it happen (without taking himself too seriously). GofG sat down with Parker to pick his brain on the Arlington nightlife scene, which celebrities stop by, his advice for budding entrepreneurs, and what is next for this hospitality group on the rise.
