The Hour specializes in vintage barware and cocktail glasses to help you style your home bar and add to the enjoyment of your cocktail hour. We seek to reinvent today's cocktail hour by bringing back mid-century style for home entertaining with a decidedly modern day twist. Alongside our new products, we carry one-of-a-kind vintage chic barware, glassware and trays from notable designers including

Dorothy Thorpe, Georges Briard, Fred Press, Culver and Couroc. New products, such as Roost glassware, Images d' Orient coasters and trays from Rock, Flower, Paper, J. Fleet Designs and Pacific Connections, blend with our vintage treasures and are artfully displayed in our historic building located on King Street in Old Town Alexandria. You will find everything you need at The Hour to create your own stylish bar and enjoy that special time of day, including glassware, shakers, pitchers, jiggers, muddlers and stirrers, bitters, napkins and even bar carts. To enhance your cocktail wardrobe, we offer a large collection of vintage cocktail jewelry, clutch handbags and cufflinks. We also offer a Bridal Wish List and are a wonderful source for hostess gifts as well as gifts for that special occasion.
