Back in Sept. 2014 we learned the plans to rebuild Frager’s Hardware after it was gutted by fire (read the full press release here.) Washington Business Journal now reports:

“A touted partnership between Roadside Development and Frager’s Hardware to rebuild the fire-ravaged Capitol Hill retailer, while adding a residential component to the project, has fallen apart.”

In early February we learned that next door neighbors, Roses Luxury, would be opening a new restaurant in the Homebody space on Barracks Row. I stopped in to ask when they were closing and was told they’ll be open until summer. Also they’re looking for new space. Updates when a final date is known and a new space is found. If you’re not familiar with the shop you can see Homebody’s website here. Last we spoke there was a lot of love/hate for them. Mark me in the love column:

319 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE

From a press release (photos below courtesy Stanton & Greene):

“Capitol Hill neighborhood newcomer Stanton & Greene has just announced its opening this week with three nights of discounted “previews,” inviting neighbors from across the District and beyond to escape to the golden age of cocktails and American classics in an historic, gorgeously renovated Capitol Hill landmark at 319 Pennsylvania Avenue SE.


The Hill’s newest destination for classic cocktails will begin three nights of limited preview services on Monday, March 9 as the distinctly American bar and brasserie anticipates its full opening on Thursday, March 12 with a complete menu.


Spanning three floors of a meticulously restored building just two blocks from the US Capitol and Supreme Court, Stanton & Greene will evoke the easy elegance of the Capital city’s bars of the early­ to mid­ 20th century. The ground floor is home to a traditional American bar and brasserie with period details from the 1930’s and 1940’s, and the second floor ‘loft’ features a soaring 16-foot space centered with an Art-Deco bar hand-carved from American ash, and three massive windows overlooking historic Pennsylvania Avenue.


Brought to life from partners and Capitol Hill restaurant owners (Sonoma Restaurant & Wine Bar, Beuchert’s Saloon) August Paro, Eli Hengst and Jared Rager, Stanton & Greene will serve a refined selection of unique and classic craft cocktails, and creative, updated interpretations of foods evocative of early- to mid-20th century America.
