From an email:

“I’m reaching out to share exciting new details on Pearl Street Warehouse, the live music venue from the owners of Cantina Marina coming to The Wharf this fall. The Stone Pony of DC, Pearl Street Warehouse will anchor The Wharf’s new entertainment street (Pearl Street) and is the only venue of its kind​ in DC to offer live music every night of the week. ​

It’s filling a void in our music scene with ​live music ​from ​genres ranging from Americana, Rock, Country, Blues, Roots, Bluegrass and Alt-Country. ​To bring it to life, here’s​ a playlist we created to give you a sense of the type of music that has inspired the venue, and what you’ll come to find at Pearl Street Warehouse.

The venue holds 300 people and the mezzanine is only 25-feet from the stage, so every guest in the house will be treated to an intimate, front-row music experience. Pearl Street Warehouse will be more than a concert venue – it will have a full bar featuring diner-style comfort food, and will be the ideal neighborhood spot to pop in for a coffee or grab an after dinner drink and a live show.”
