More Details on Mythology & Lore – Chop House and Lounge – Coming to H Street in 2015

816 H Street, NE

816 H Street, NE is formerly home to HR-57 and Fever Lounge most recently. Mythology & Lore is from the group that predicts H Street will:

“transition away from that hipster scene to more of a mainstream, cosmopolitan, urban scene.”

Their twitter page says opening in 2015.

The liquor license placard recently posted out front says:

“This is new Retail Class “C” Tavern. The establishment is a modern white table cloth chop house on the first floor providing steaks, seafood and vegetarian options with a significant dessert menu. There will be two kitchens. One on the first floor, and one on the second floor to execute the lounge menu. Menus will be offered up to an hour before closing. Lounge operations are on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors. Third floor will include collapsible doors that open to a summer garden with the back of the garden enclosed by a two story wall. Dance floor will be 15 feet by10 feet and located on the H Street side of the 2nd floor. The number of seats is 150 and the total occupancy load is 160. The rooftop Summer Garden has split-level seating with entertainment for 32 seats; 70 person load.”

Hours of operation are listed as Sunday through Thursday 11am-2am Friday and Saturday 11pm–3am.

  • Oh boy. I stopped reading after “hipster.” Good luck.

  • keep h st weird!

  • This place is brought to you by the people who brought us the Atlas Room. If the past is any indication of what’s to come, this Mythology place is going to be exceptional.

  • “mainstream, cosmopolitan, urban.” i think i know what that’s code for.

  • Steak and Ale? I hope they have a Hobbit theme

  • Two kitchens for a place that seats 150? That’s insane. A 10×15′ dance floor? That’s smaller than my bedroom. I don’t even understand what the two-story summer garden even means. This is some lols.

    Hopefully they don’t follow the Da Luft concept of attempting everything and failing at all.

  • Agree with JustinBC. I’m a grown up. I don’t overpay for steak and chops in a place that doubles as a dance club.

    • This Mythology place is owned by the same owners at Atlas Room, which is the best restaurant on H Street by far. All of this speculation about Mythology failing as a concept is mind boggling to me. I went to Atlas Room on Friday night. It is exceptional.

        I absolutely love Atlas Room, but having the same owners isn’t a guarantee for success. Some of the same people who have an ownership in Queen Vic (excellent bar) also have an ownership in Chupacabra (massive fail). There are examples of this kind of thing all over the city, not every concept works otherwise developers would just hire the Atlas Room owners to create every restaurant in the city.

      • Expensive doesn’t always mean best…….I’ve only ate there once and it was good.

        • Just because it’s expensive doesn’t mean it’s not worthy of the cost and accolades. Best means best, and Atlas Room is the best. Hands down. Name another restaurant that is better on H Street.

      • It is not the same owners as Atlas Room. But the former general manager of Atlas Room is involved.

      • Everyone was raving about Atlas Room and my partner and I both had HORRIBLE meals there. I mean horrible. My partner’s dish was inedible (it was some sort of brick of cheese- not even sure what it was supposed to be). I ordered steak and it was tough and flavorless. Not sure how such an upscale restaurant can mess up steak. Suffice to say, we haven’t been back, and won’t be going in the future.

    I’m surprised they would talk so openly about H Street transitioning away from “that hipster scene”. It seems like a comment just begging to rile people up.

    • its already happend/ happening

    • What people don’t seem to realize is that hipsters are proto-yuppies, they transition from skinny jeans to dockers. New pants, same ass.

      • Hahaha BEST comment on the thread, couldn’t have said it better myself.

        As far as hipsters on H Street, those folks left a LONG time ago. Hipsters flow where the BROs don’t go. I just read an article about how Baltimore is the new Brooklyn ie hipster destination….discuss.

        • Baltimore: cheap, cool old buildings, industrial sites ripe for repurposing. Seems like it could happen.
