Thanks to a reader for passing on a letter sent to nearby residents from the Wunder Garten team:
“We are working with the building management to schedule a meeting to tell you more about the beer garden (Wunder Garten) we are planning to open on the vacant lot next to your building. While we are confirming the details of this meeting with the ANC and the building management, we wanted to share some information about the project with you upfront.
Over the last year, we have been working closely with the NoMa BID on creating an attractive outdoor space where neighbors and friends can meet, socialize, and enjoy food and drinks in an environment similar to popular German beer gardens—something that is currently missing in NoMa.Our plan is to place benches and tables on the rear of the lot and use decorative landscaping to create a causal and inviting atmosphere.
We will serve German and local beer, and soft drinks (no liquor will be served). A rotating lineup of DC’s most popular food trucks will provide food for our guests.
REI, NoMa’s new retail resident, will also have a presence at the beer garden, providing fun classes on recreational and outdoor actives such as bike repair workshops, camping and more.
We will work with the NoMa BID to organize a handful community events throughout the summer during which we may occasionally have live music. There will not be a cover charge or live music during regular operations.
We are looking forward to meeting you and sharing our vision with you. Just like you, we want a thriving, fun, safe and quite neighborhood. Wunder Garten is going to be a communal space that we all can be excited about. At the meeting we will give you more details about our plans to achieve this goal.”
