Nothing beats the combination of old and new, when the familiar and exciting come together to create a beautiful blend, a perfect pair. Maybe a pair as perfect as wine and cheese. But where would you find such a thing? Look no further than Ahso Cellars, a spinoff of the incredible restaurant that has made its home in the Brambleton Town Center. Chef Jason Maddens, the mastermind behind Ahso Restaurant, is at it again with his newest venture, also in the Brambleton Town Center. As a master sommelier with an impressive culinary background, Jason is taking the wine tasting experience to a whole new level.

Ahso Cellars with Jason & Tiffany Maddens

Ahso Cellars is just next to its sister restaurant, the original Ahso, which started this chapter for Jason and his wife Tiffany in 2017. As a chef for almost 20 years, Jason has worked for some of the best chefs in the DC area, but his dream was always to come back to his hometown and open a restaurant there. Now he has not only that, but Ahso Cellars as well.

While technically Ahso Cellars opened last year, Jason is ready to take 2023 by storm. Not that he needs to worry about press, however, as the wine bar is already receiving rave reviews. One customer had this to say about her experience:

Sleek and trendy, this spot is your one-stop shop for those unique wines you can’t find in chain stores and delicious charcuterie to pair. Whether you want a glass, a flight or something to go, Ahso Cellars is expertly curated to invoke a sense of upscale tastes at an approachable price.

Ahso Cellars wine wall with charcuterie board appetizers

The same way Brambletonians know they can always head to Ahso for delicious food, cocktails and service with a smile, Ahso Cellars continues in that vein. Both staff and fellow patrons are happy to strike up a conversation with you if you choose to venture in for a glass of wine before another stop in the Brambleton Town Center. The atmosphere is designed classy enough for a girls’ night out, but casual enough that you can lean into your wine connoisseur ways no matter the actual level of skill.

The experience is made all the more welcoming by the wine display that features prominently. Each country whose wine they serve is listed with the wine on soaring racks to make it easier for patrons to learn about their drink. Both glasses and bottles are offered, as well as beer for those who don’t find themselves loving either Riesling or cabernet.

Catering from Ahso Restaurant ensures that any event you participate in there will be well provided for, too. This bonus is perfect for folks who are ready to book out the venue for a private event and want to make sure their guests aren’t drinking their dinner. Although, the selection at Ahso Cellars is so diverse we wouldn’t blame you.

To make the deal even sweeter than Moscato, Ahso Cellars also offers a membership program. The program can be bought on a month-by-month basis, or you can gift your budding sommelier a 6- or 12-month membership. Three levels are available, offering different discounts and even complimentary wine each month! This program touches on just about everything you can find at Ahso Cellars, so if you’re planning to spend some time there it is an incredible offer.

As always, it is a pleasure for the members of the Brambleton community to see a favorite flourish, and that is most certainly the case with the expansion of Ahso Cellars from Ahso Restaurant. Ahso Cellars is open Tuesday through Thursday, 12 to 9 PM, Saturdays 12 to 10 PM, and 12 to 8 PM on Sundays. There will even be a Far Niente Tasting night on February 23rd to let folks sample the goodness of Napa Valley Wine right here in NoVa with a delicious dinner to follow.

One of Brambleton’s newest tenants is wowing everyone who walks through their doors. Rebel Taco opened near the end of 2022 and has made a serious impact on the Brambleton Town Center. To learn more about your new favorite spot, read on!

Just a few short months ago, local chain Rebel Taco set up shop in the Brambleton Town Center. The journey began about 5 years ago, and went from one food truck to a food truck PLUS three locations…and another on the way. Since it’s opening, the buzz surrounding this restaurant has grown consistently. Why? Because to the Rebel Taco team, “rebel” is more than just a name. These tacos go far beyond your traditional Tex-Mex cuisine to incorporate flavors that are meaningful to the areas in which they place their locations.

Rebel Taco sampler

Here in the Town Center, the Rebel Taco team makes a point of including ingredients Brambleton residents will appreciate, even if they aren’t considered traditional for this style, because they care about this community the way Brambletonians do. You can also see this care in the way they’re upping their game to cater to the audience here with activities, events and more. One of the most important additions? Brunch! While a true lunch menu is still in the works, Saturdays and Sundays are open for brunch starting at 11am, perfect for a get together with friends and family alike.

Rebel Taco S'mores station

Another kid-friendly add-on is the s’mores set up Rebel Taco has created. Folks can buy kits with everything you need to make these delicious treats and roast marshmallows over their fire pits – located on a heated patio – and DIY the perfect dessert right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the Brambleton Town Center. All you can eat Taco Tuesdays are a part of their standing schedule now too, with $10 margaritas for grown ups. Girls’ Night Out gets better too with Rebel Taco’s Happy Hour every Tuesday-Friday, which includes not just drink specials, but four dollar tacos – talk about a deal! Topping it all off, live music is in the works, and Rebel Taco will be announcing the lineup soon.

But what do their customers really think?

“The staff is amazing, the food is so flavorful, and the atmosphere is relaxed and fun. Ask for the hot salsa when you order the chips. The salsa verde is on point. Definitely a place I will go to often.”

“The restaurant is very eye-catching with an outdoor and indoor bar. Restaurant was unique and colorful and had a nice vibe too it. My kids loved the food and we had an amazing time!”

Amazing experiences like the one at Rebel Taco are on par with what the community can expect of Brambleton. No matter what you want to do, whether it’s spending time with family or friends, relaxing or getting excited, you can find it here. With Town Center tenants like Rebel Taco, you can have a delicious time, whatever you’re doing.

Whoa! Here comes the holidays and everyone’s to-do list will be doubling! Between preparing for family visits and overall entertaining, we know the common question, “what should I get them this year?” is very top-of-mind. Luckily, Brambleton has plenty of opportunities to shop local.

The Brambleton Town Center business owners are part of our community, and as such, know exactly what will make the holidays top-notch for all. From restaurants to something special for your 4-legged bestie, opportunities to dance & sing and everything in between, our amazing businesses and business owners are committed to serving the community in every way.

Your first stop? Go Bananas! Our favorite local toy shop has something for the child in all of us! Look for this year’s holiday catalog already in the mail, and shop early for their Black Friday Sale on November 25 from 10 AM – 12 PM!

Go Bananas’ Holiday 2022 Toy Catalog will be arriving soon!

Every year, Go Bananas researches and curates the best of the best in every area of children’s lives and makes it all available to the children of Loudoun County, both in person and online in an exciting and inviting environment. The store balances entertainment and education to make sure kids have the opportunity to learn while they play, helping them develop their curiosity without losing their sense of fun. Whether your child is interested in music, science or magic, Go Bananas will surely have something to wow your favorite young person. The store goes above and beyond to provide toys and activities for every age as well, from infants to pre-teens, so you can rely on them to be there for your child.

The Salvation Army Angel Tree will be placed inside the Brambleton Town Center Pass-Thru and adorned with tags on Wednesday, November 9. Return unwrapped gifts by 5 PM on Monday, December 5.

Brambleton’s local businesses do even more for the community than just provide goods and services though. Go Bananas and many other businesses make a point of hosting and participating in events that give back to the community like Trick-or-Treating or the annual Angel Tree, as well as their own initiatives. They strive to not only meet the community’s needs in the way they do business, but also how they positively impact those members of the community who need a little something extra, both directly and indirectly. Supporting these businesses allows them to continue to not only employ community members and serve them via their business, but also gives them the ability to continue to pay it forward.

If you are still figuring out the best gifts for your list this season, consider supporting local businesses. The care they put into their experience is unmatched (if you head over to Go Bananas, every purchase can be wrapped for free). Whether you’re looking for something special for just one person or the whole gang, there is sure to be a local business with just the right stuff.

School is back in full swing and the kiddos get to spend all day with their friends (and favorite teachers)! There’s the promise of fall fun and festivals, and the overall joy of a new season. With all the beauty of the changing seasons, one constant is Brambleton’s desire to keep kids interested in learning – and what better place to do that than the Brambleton Library? Located in the heart of the Brambleton Town Center, our state-of-the-art library is far more than books and books only.


It may feel obvious, but the original purpose of libraries was to make reading accessible, and the Brambleton Library is no exception. As a member of the Loudoun County Public Library system, the Brambleton Library operates with the ideals of “Inspiration, Information, Innovation [and] Inclusion” to build community in celebrating reading and learning. Members can use their cards to access a huge number of books, magazines and more. Both in person and online, through resources like Libby/OverDrive, making it easy for kids of all ages and reading levels to find reading materials that inspire them. Few things are as exciting as watching your kids read for fun, and there is no safer place to encourage that than with the knowledgeable staff of the Brambleton Library, and the environment they provide to all ages.

The Makerspace

One of the best parts of the Brambleton Library is the Makerspace and everything you can do! This space makes many resources available to patrons during regular library hours, including:

The Makerspace not only includes incredible to-do’s (make-your-own holiday cards, anyone?) but also offers events and workshops to help folks engage with their creativity and learn something new. The Makerspace is a place to allow your imagination to take you to new heights of creativity and learning. Find a list of Makerspace events on their calendar and start planning your next project now, but be sure to call ahead to ensure the space you’re interested in is available.

Activities for All Ages

On top of activities within the Makerspace, the library has activities available for everyone, such as:

These activities are a great way to spend time with other Brambletonians and make friends with people who share your interests. They are also a fantastic way to try out a new hobby in a fun and low-pressure environment. Let your kids (including your inner child) get out there and see what’s in store. Who knows? It could be the perfect easy-to-plan play date for new friends from school!

Events and More

If you’re looking for events that will keep you cozy as the weather cools down, look no further. The Brambleton Library has incredible events each week including Author Talks and lectures from experts on everything from the Cancer Moonshot to the best ways to cook with various herbs. This past summer, the library even hosted an event to help kids feel more comfortable taking the school bus for the first time, including a practice run. Too cool! Each event is designed with the community in mind and is often focused on the local landscape, both literally and figuratively. Check out their calendar or stay up to date through their Facebook page where new events are shared every Monday. Some upcoming events we’re excited about are:

Toddler Storytime – Wednesdays at 10 AM

Meet the Makerspace – Saturdays at 10 AM. Tour the Makerspace and learn what it’s all about!

Bike Into History – Oct 9th at 11 AM. Antique bike show on Emberbrook Circle.

Who knew the Brambleton Library offered so much? No matter your age or interest, a trip to the library should most definitely be on your fall bucket list. Coordinate with friends or make it a solo trip. Either way, you are sure to find adventure. Check out their website or Facebook page to learn more.

When choosing a neighborhood to live in, it’s important to make sure you feel at home in the area as well as in your house. After all, a home is made through community, and community flourishes when people have the opportunity to connect with each other. One of the best places to find community in a neighborhood is in its parks, of which Brambleton already has many, as well as 18 miles of paved trails weaving together between them. And now the County has built a neighboring park, The Hal & Berni Hanson Regional Park, with a ribbon cutting set for this Friday, September 23, 2022 at 5:30 PM.

Hanson Park is located on 257 acres between Brambleton and our neighboring community of Willowsford. The land itself was a thoughtful gift from the family of noted writer, U.S. State Department official and nonprofit leader, Haldore ‘Hal’ Hanson, who died in 1992. An explicit wish of Hal and his wife Berni was that the Hanson Family Partnership only sell this land if it would be used as parkland, and we are so grateful for it. Hanson Park has taken shape with not only the public in mind, but through its direct contribution. Wally Holladay, an acclaimed skatepark designer, was also brought on to the project as a design consultant, but this isn’t all the park will offer.

Hanson Park skate park

Athletes of all levels will surely enjoy the attention to a variety of sports, including 10 multi-purpose soccer fields, four baseball and softball fields, a cricket field, four tennis courts and Pickleball courts, two artificial turf fields, an outdoor basketball court, batting cages, a disc golf course, a skate plaza and grandstands for fans. Kiddos will also have access to two playgrounds with rubberized surfaces, a splash pad and inclusive features to make sure everyone has a good time.

Hanson Park

For those interested in nature, Hanson Park will offer five ponds and an integrated irrigation system, fishing piers, a lodge and nature center, picnic pavilion, an amphitheater, paved and natural surface trails, and off-leash areas for dogs so your pup can get in on the fun too. The park will include concession and restroom buildings and pavilions, and history buffs will surely enjoy exploring the historic Lee-Hanson house which underwent renovations during park construction.

Hanson House at Hanson park

Hanson Park is a pretty incredible public park, but Brambleton also has a wide array of neighborhood parks located throughout the community to serve the leisure and recreational needs of all Brambleton owners, residents, and their guests. Owned and maintained by Brambleton Community Association (BCA), each of these parks provides fun ways for Brambletonians to connect with neighbors and build community, including: Legacy Park, which has 2 playgrounds, basketball courts, sand volleyball courts, a zipline, climbing structures, lighted tennis courts, an open playfield, natural pond, swings and waterfalls; and Morning Walk Park, featuring play structures for 2-5 year olds as well as 5-12 year olds, dual zip lines, double slides, a sand volleyball court, a large playfield, trails, landscaping and irrigation.

Legacy Park

Another Brambleton favorite is Acorn Park – a medium-sized open space park with trees, a walking trail and benches, which makes it a fabulous place to take a break or change your scenery if you work from home. There is also Creighton West Park featuring two basketball courts, four tennis courts and a dog park, and Dragonfly Park, a small park with beautiful views of Brambleton’s 2nd largest pond.

Brambleton also offers some places with just kids in mind, with playgrounds at:

With all of this and more, Brambleton is the perfect place to find not just a physical house, but a community to call home. It’s important to find spaces outside your four walls you can continue to feel safe and inspired to live your best life, and Brambleton is proud to provide that for each resident, whether they want to spend some time working outside their home or take the family on an outdoor adventure without ever leaving Brambleton. So join us on Friday, September 23, 2022, at 5:30 PM at Championship Plaza #1, 23345 Hanson Park Drive, Aldie for the ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration of Hanson Park or join us any other time at one of the incredible outdoor spaces Brambleton is proud to offer.

Did we get your attention? Good, because this is gonna be big. Rebel Taco, soon to be known as your new favorite taco place, is coming to Brambleton and we couldn’t be more excited. With fresh ingredients and a lively atmosphere, Rebel Taco is giving us every reason to fall back in love with Mexican street food flare.

Rebel Taco Cantina

Rebel Taco has been making waves the last few years, with its first restaurant launching in Philadelphia in 2018 and a new location in DC recently opening its doors. Brambleton residents, however, may recognize them for their food truck, which has traveled both the streets of DC and NoVA spreading tacos and cheer for years. Now, the Rebel Taco team is gearing up to take the Brambleton Town Center by storm, and we can’t wait to welcome them with arms – and mouths – wide open.

Rebel Taco interior

When it comes to style, Rebel Taco has plenty to go around. Each of their locations leans into the bright and beautiful colors Mexico is known for with modern twists like neon lights with fun phrases peppering the walls. Vibrant murals are scattered throughout the spaces as well, creating a tie into the incredible history of muralism in Mexico. While you are still waiting to see the Brambleton location unveiled, you can be sure to expect the same incredible attention to detail in the Town Center. We’re really excited about what we’ve seen so far!

While we are so thrilled to see the Brambleton location soon opening, it’s the menu at Rebel Taco that is the real showstopper. Featuring both tried and true recipes and modern takes on the classics (think crispy shrimp tacos), every dish is chock full of fresh ingredients at incredible prices. Favorites like Mexican street-style corn can be paired with exciting tacos like braised lamb birria and washed down with a seasonal margarita, making it a perfect stop for your next girls’ night out. Treats like churro bites add some sweetness to your meal, and Rebel Taco’s breakfast and brunch menus offer the perfect way to start your Saturday or Sunday.

Rebel Taco tacos

Rebel Taco is set to be another excellent addition to the Brambleton Town Center, which already has many of the best restaurants around. No matter what you’re in the mood for, the Town Center has it all right in the heart of an incredible community. Any family outing or brunch with friends can be made special with the amazing tenants that are always ready to provide the best of the best. Whether you’re in the mood for a snack, a meal or dessert, there are more than enough options to satisfy your craving.

Be sure to come by the Brambleton Town Center on Tuesday, August 30th to check out Rebel Taco’s newest home right next to the first floor of the library and get yourself ready for the first of many Taco Tuesdays. Follow them on Instagram for all of the latest and greatest updates!

One more excuse to discover how phenomenal life can be at Brambleton, a master planned community in Loudoun County, Virginia that’s been thoughtfully designed to provide more access, more walkability and more connectedness. Choose to live in a modern new home while living steps away from what is arguably the best town center in Ashburn!

Music is an essential part of life for most people. While we don’t physically need it the way we need air, water or food, music can become a part of us and nourish us in a similar way. It gives us space to access our feelings and share them with others, colors our lives and brings emotion to the more mundane parts of our lives. Andy Nguyen, owner of Brambleton Town Center’s A&A Music, understands this more than most, and is thrilled to have been sharing his love of music with the Brambleton community for 15 years.

A&A Music Carnegie Hall

Andy began his relationship with music early during his childhood in Vietnam, learning to play piano at 6 years old and going to conservatory to study it at only 9. Andy carried his love into higher education, majoring in piano performance and music composition before graduating with distinction from George Mason University. He has also studied at several other prestigious universities and has arranged for performances on multiple continents, but his true love is teaching others, which he has been doing since his initial move to Loudoun County in 1994. “This is not a job to me. This is fun! Everyone should pick up an instrument in their lives and just try! Not the right instrument? Try again!”

A&A Music

This attitude is especially helpful with younger students. From 7-year-old drummers to 5-year-old pianists, Andy and his team at A&A get excited to meet each student wherever they may be in their musical journey and work with them to achieve their goals – and they always impress. “All of my students are so well spoken, with great educations by way of Loudoun County, and it shows.” From beginners to advanced performers, there is someone on staff to help with any instrument a person could want to play at whatever level, and they love the support of the Brambleton Town Center’s management who are always excited about what their tenants are up to. An extra bonus? A&A’s location is close by to Andy’s favorite restaurant, AhSo!

A&A Music in BTC

Students themselves love the options available at A&A – group sessions, one on one time, and more. There are even multiple summer camps for those students who want to take their skills to the next level. Instructors also make a point to prioritize conversations about music history and composition so students can have access to every aspect of music and how it has evolved over time. This holistic approach makes it easier for everyone to excel in their instrument, no matter their goal or age. A&A is even getting some retirees interested in picking music up again now that they have more time; in Andy’s shop, 75 is just as good an age as 5 to start playing.

A&A Music recital

After years of creating a new “normal”, Andy is excited to be incorporating some past traditions as the store moves forward. 2022 marks the return of not only A&A’s summer camps, but holiday performances as well! To learn more about music lessons for yourself or a loved one, stop by the store at 22895 Brambleton Plaza #107 Monday – Thursday from 11am -7:30pm, Friday 11am-7:00pm, Saturday 10 am-5:00pm and Sunday Noon-5:00pm. Or visit them online at 

Voted best music store by Ashburn Magazine in both 2020 and 2022, Andy and his team look forward to helping you and your loved ones grow your love of music!

One of our favorite things about the Brambleton community is the opportunity to watch families blossom as part of it. Seeing children grow up here, families moving in as they get ready to welcome new life, and generations living together as part of the beautiful tapestry that makes up this landscape is what Brambleton is all about. There could not be a better example of this than the Pistolesis, who moved here in 2004 and have been thriving as a family since. Parents Alison and Vince decided to make the leap from Alexandria to Ashburn because they wanted to plant roots for their family, and now that they have two teenagers and two pets, their choice 18 years ago still feels like the perfect fit.

Pistolesi family

Since Alison had spent nearly a decade in the construction supply industry, she was confident that she and Vince would be able to find not just a beautiful home but a quality one, and she could not have been more right. After they toured several planned communities that were starting in the area, they came upon a Brambleton in its infancy and instantly something felt different, like it was the right fit for them. They both fell in love with the Christopher Companies Kensington model floor plan and were told to move fast if they wanted to be a part of it all. That night at dinner, Alison and Vince decided to take the plunge, and the pair moved into their new build soon after. This ended up being perfect timing, as twins Sofia and Sydni were born just two years later.

Pistolesi sisters

Their home now gets to host not just the family (including dog Enzo and cat Dino), but Brambleton friends that have become like family. With Alison’s job (CMO of Mosaic Home Interiors) exposing her to so many new ideas, they’ve made several updates to customize their living space, including a full kitchen remodel, multiple bathroom renovations, a basement with a wine cellar and poker room, an office renovation and most recently, an outdoor space with a built-in fire pit, patio and pizza oven for warm weather gatherings. “We absolutely love it,” said Alison. “We get so much enjoyment from our home and love having spaces to entertain in.”

The Pistolesis’ excitement for their Brambleton home reaches far outside their four walls too. The family loves to take walks on all of the trails that run throughout Brambleton, and they reminisce about summer days when the girls were little every time those trails lead them by the pool and what fun they’ve had. Vince, an account manager for Mondelez, is lovingly known to friends and neighbors as “Uncle Cookie.” He keeps their garage stashed with Oreos and Chips Ahoy, and loves sharing with local food pantries or just a hungry neighborhood pal. Sofia and Syndi have loved growing up here, and now Sofia is on the soccer team at Independence High and Sydni plays flute in the marching band there. The Town Center is full of beloved hangouts, from AhSo, which has hosted so many of their celebrations, to the new favorite Himalayan Wild Yak, Scotto’s for when pizza night at home doesn’t quite go as planned, and so much more. All of this allows them to connect further with their incredible neighbors.

“We moved out to LoCo from Alexandria literally not knowing anyone in Loudoun County. Years later, our Brambleton neighbors have been here for us through life, death, sickness and health.

Our Brambleton neighbors have watched our kids during snow days, taken care of our pets when we’re out of town, and always been there for us and we love doing the same for them…we have no desire to move, our house is perfect for us! Even though some of our friends have moved over the years, the new neighbors that moved in are always fabulous!”

Pistolesi family game room

When the Pistolesis moved to Brambleton nearly 20 years ago, they threw themselves into creating a life here. Now, every part of their lives is full of the magic you just can’t get anywhere else. Both in their home and beyond it, the entire Pistolesi family has woven itself seamlessly into the Brambleton tapestry, making it all the more beautiful for their contribution.
