The MHG Group was formed in 2005 to enter the Specialty Coffee Business and in late 2006, we adjusted our strategic vision and decided to enter the bar/restaurant market as well. We created the CIRCA bistro concept and opened our first location in the North Dupont Circle section of Washington, D.C. in April of 2007. In January 2011, we expanded the CIRCA brand to Clarendon, Virginia and in July 2011, we opened our third CIRCA location in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood of Washington, D.C.
With CIRCA, we tried to create the type of place we love to frequent - energized urban locations with great patios, American fare with International flair, a vibrant community bar scene with Happy Hour, 20+ wines by the glass, a custom beer list, original cocktails for every season, digital music and high-definition TV's with sports, current events and music videos. And the product will be delivered by a management and service team that is striving to become the best in the business.
