I’m still not sure if this is going to be awesome or awful but I’m super intrigued. Especially after spotting the waverunner…

Their Web site says their hours will be:

Tues. – Thurs. 4pm – 2am
Fri. & Sat. 12pm – 4am
Sunday 12pm – 12am

The Web site also still says grand opening May 2012.

  • bahahh…it’s where? Awful.

    • Isn’t/wasn’t there a “beach bar” in Alexandria? Mango Mike’s? Whatever.

      I am calling for drinks in pineapples, servers in grass skirts, steel drums, tiki torches, fake Jamaican accents, fire dancers, the manager will dress like a ship captain like the old guy from Caddy Shack. They’ll also have a secret spot called “under the boardwalk” where you can smoke weed and make out.

      • Manager must also have a live parrot that sits on his shoulder. Preferably the parrot should crack insulting jokes about the customers.

        And a peg leg.

      I’ll take a shot in the dark – 645 NY Ave.

  • No way, it’s gonna be awesome.

  • It is going to be super awesome. Cannot wait.

  • Seems like there is a high potential for it to be a terrible douchefest to me. But I will wait to hear more before I make up my mind.

    On twitter they say:

    “Sand comes tomorrow, so close I can taste the salt air!”

  • This will be a huge success if they can get the sand right.

  • Does anyone know how this will affect The Warehouse for Fringe?

  • Anyone else find it a little humorous that it’s next to The Eagle? (DC’s gay leather bar for those not in the know.)

  • Clearly some of us like having fun at the beach, and some of us sadly don’t.

  • When you live in Mt Vernon Square, you really appreciate anything that isn’t a parking lot. Would I rather walk by a vacant lot on my walk home from work, or a outdoors bar? If only people from my neighborhood to go this bar, then I’m ok with that too.

    The thing I disliked most about neighborhoods with a ton of amenities like Logan and Dupont was that they became weekend tourist destinations for people from Virginia and Maryland. Also, there was a much more transient huppie vibe in both of those hoods. So, I’m ok with my neighborhood bar looks like shit if it keeps away the bridge and tunnel crowd.

    • The bridge and tunnel crowd is a fact of life for DC. Nothing will stop them from coming in.

    • And I don’t think you have to worry about the bridge and tunnel crowd venturing over this way very often.

    • There are no tunnels around here.

      if you are going to co-opt the NYC phrase, at least DCify it by saying bridge and beltway.

      • um, yes, it’s called the metro tunnel and there are 2 of them. and it’s one way that stupid virginians sneak into the city under the cover of water

  • People from Arlington are scared to go east of 14th north of Mass. In addition, there isn’t an Orange line stop within a mile of Mt Vernon.

    Let’s not forget this place was conceived by the owners of the Passenger.

  • This Account Has Been Suspended
    Let’s hope they pay their other bills on time. I think this place has great potential, particularly compared to other Chinatown drinking options.

  • This is kind of crap because it’s shutting down the Warehouse theater for the summer (AFTER Fringe– Fringe shouldn’t be affected, is what I hear). However, that means that other local performing groups can’t use this awesome and affordable space. My awesome a cappella group, Capital Blend, usually has our major concerts here, but we have to find a new venue because of this thing.

  • this is a shit idea

  • It’s opening tomorrow night.
