SOUNDS OF SALAMANDER

Join us every Sunday starting in May for the return of Sounds of Salamander on Gold Cup’s terrace. Feast on our fresh al fresco menu, delicious desserts and seasonal beverages while enjoying sensational views of the Virginia countryside and taking in the sounds of an acoustic guitar.

YAPPY HOUR

Gold Cup & Grand Lawn The winter was ruff, but we are happy to celebrate the arrival of spring with the return of Yappy Hour. Every Tuesday, watch as your pooch tests their skills in the obstacle course and while you indulge in a special menu from Gold Cup Wine Bar featuring Sharing Chow including our Pimento Cheese “Hush Puppies” and a refreshing Pup-tail Menu with our Spicy Pup-arita with Blanco tequila. A portion of the proceeds are donated to the Middleburg Humane Foundation.

There is a level of understated elegance and impeccable attention to detail inherent throughout our collection, from welcoming exteriors and exquisite landscaping, to casually elegant interiors inspired by the local surroundings.
