Old Sabores space located next to Dino at 3435B Connecticut Ave. NW
Rumor has it that Dupont bar St. Arnold is moving biergarten operations in. Can PoP confirm? The thought of having such an establishment just steps from my door is fundamentally titillating.”
Ever since Sabores closed back in June ’11 folks have been wondering who’ll be moving in. I’m happy to say that I’ve confirmed with the folks at St. Arnold’s Belgian Restaurant that they’ve signed of a lease not only for the old Sabores space but also for the old Club Soda space located downstairs (on the other side of Dino.) This will be there 2nd location as they are keeping their Dupont location on Jefferson St, NW which opened back in Dec. ’10.
The former Sabores space will be more of a restaurant feel and the space downstairs will be more of a pub feel. Additionally the downstairs space will have lots of tvs to watch sports. The hope is that the former Sabores space will open up in November and the downstairs space hopes to open shortly thereafter.

All in all, I think this is pretty great news for Cleveland Park.
