Allison Strunk attended George Mason University where she majored in Criminal Justice. During college, she helped open Champps Americana at Fair Oaks Mall as a server and was quickly promoted to lead trainer and bartender. Allison was then promoted to front of house manager at Champps where she focused on the bar area, coming up with crafty cocktails and focusing on staff training.
She was recruited to the Fairfax Marriott to manage Oak Grille, our original restaurant. She took an interest in event planning and was promoted to Event Manager and then Senior Event Manager, where she planned and managed all the major conferences, weddings and social events in the hotel.
Allison missed being in operations, however, and has joined the new 703 bar + kitchen team as General Manager. In her spare time, she enjoys keeping up with her rambunctious five-year-old Jackson and enjoys checking out local NoVa restaurants. Her favorite beer is Dogfishhead Alehouse 75 and her favorite cocktail to make is a Moscow Mule.
Allison is looking forward to developing 703’s Happy Hour (4pm-7pm Monday through Friday!) into a local favorite and focusing on introducing Virginia’s vibrant local beer and wine scene to both local and out of town guests.
