Coming to Barracks Row – Chesapeake Room


New tavern coming to 501 8th Street, SE on Barracks Row. The alcohol license says it will be a tavern featuring regional and seasonal combinations of local seafood with recorded music. The occupancy is 49 with an additional 32 for the sidewalk cafe.

In the meantime check out the murals adorning the building after the jump.

  • That place was a flower shop until the recent past, correct?

  • great news! and a new bar just a couple doors down is also coming soon from the owners of Matchbox. 8th street just keeps getting better.

    can’t wait for these kinds of the uses to cross the Anacostia.

  • @Raymo, correct. We’ll have a complete write up of the all of the new Capitol Hill restaurants and bars (including H St.) coming up over at the Hill is Home later this week!

    Small correction: the Matchbox place opening up two doors down will be a “30s-style” diner. They were handing out nice milkshake samplers at the recent Oktoberfest.

  • At first, I thought it said, Coming to Barracks Row – Chesapeake House.

  • That’s my building on the right of the top pic. Can’t wait to get something in here. Vacant rat infested storefronts make poor neighbors.
