Colonel Brooks Tavern Closing Tonight After 32 Years in Brookland


901 Monroe St, NE

Dear PoPville,

Did you know that Col Brooks’ Tavern is closing it’s doors after 32 years on Friday (tonight)? We were there this week and while they are running out of beers, it’s been part of the neighborhood where everyone knows your name. Soon, it will be a hole in the ground. Alas, but that’s the circle of (development) iife.

The site is slated to become the 901 Monroe Street project:

“RETAIL: 13,000 square feet. Five retailers including a restaurant
APARTMENTS: 212 rental units
PARKING: 150 parking spaces
BIKE SPACES: 66 Bike spaces
ZIPCAR: 2 Zipcar spaces”

A buddy of mine who went to the law school at Catholic University was a big fan and I’d meet for drinks there from time to time but sadly, as a non regular, my deepest memory is the horrible triple murder that occurred in 2003. So sad.

Wishing all those who were apart of Colonel Brooks Tavern the best of luck in the future. I’ve heard whispers that they could reopen in the new space but I’ve never seen that confirmed. Any fans of Colonel Brooks Tavern?
