2917 Georgia Ave, NW
Potentially huge news for Georgia Ave. Thanks to a reader for sending word that the former Enterprise Theatre & Jazz Lounge is going to become a tavern. But it’s much better than that – I hear it will be called Bravo Lounge and they plan on serving deli food. If it’s true deli food this could be huge. Stay tuned.

In this morning’s post about Blue Banana closing, a reader mentions hearing a cigar bar could be going in just down the street at 3622 Georgia Ave. If true, think that would be a good addition to the block?
3632 Georgia Ave, NW
Blue Banana sports bar turned rock club opened up back in Dec. 2010. Thanks to all who sent word about their closing. I hear that a new management team is being brought in and they plan on reopening with a new concept. I also hear the patio will be expanded and a roof deck could be added. It is not clear how long renovations will take but I’ll be sure to update as more info becomes available.
It seems naming a sports bar, Blue Banana, from the film Pretty Woman wasn’t the best idea after all…
Looking forward to learning more about the new concept – and very excited about the potential for an expanded outdoor patio and roof deck!

Thanks to the folks from Mothership for sending word that their liquor license came through earlier than expected. Nice! “Draft beer tonight then full bar and craft cocktails tomorrow.”
3628 Georgia Ave, NW
DC Reynolds sweet back patio is about to get sweeter. They are adding a 25 foot bar with 10 tap lines. If all goes well they could be open as early as this Saturday. Stay tuned.
Lion’s is located at 3614 Georgia Ave, NW just south of the Petworth metro.

Mothership soft opened over the weekend and will open with regular hours starting Tuesday. They anticipate serving liquor starting “mid-April”. Have a look at the soft opening menu after the jump. (more…)
During this past weekend, members of the Third District’s Crime Suppression Unit conducted a robbery prevention operation that brought them to the areas surrounding the 3500 block of Warder Street. The officers were able to observe activity that led them inside of “GEE Market” located at 3583 Warder. Further investigation led to the discovery and seizure of approximately 50 pounds of KHAT as well as several cartons of cigarettes not authorized to be sold in the District of Columbia. As a result, there were numerous arrests and the investigation will continue on. Thanks to any and all the citizens that provided useful information relating to this case. Anyone with additional information relating to this matter or any other suspicious activity is encouraged to call (202) 727-9099 or email me directly at Aubrey.firstname.lastname@example.org.

Earlier in the week we noted that Mothership, coming to 3301 Georgia Ave, NW, had applied for a liquor license. We also learned they were 3 weeks out from opening. I stopped by for some early photos yesterday and was happy to learn that permits were getting issued and they were still on track for an opening in about 3 weeks. You can also tell from these early photos that the space is starting to look great. You can track their progress and follow them on twitter @MothershipDC. And of course I’ll post again when an opening date is finalized. In the meantime – here’s a first look inside the former Brown’s Caribbean Bakery. Note that over 80% of the materials have been recycled.
More photos after the jump. (more…)

Thanks to all who sent emails about the liquor license application posted for Mothership at 3301 Georgia Ave, NW (the former Brown’s Caribbean Bakery.) It says:
“New Full Service Restaurant serving eclectic small plates and gourmet pizza. Seating Capacity is 44, with a total Occupancy Load of 87. Summer Garden with 40 seats.”
I spoke with the owner who says t-minus three weeks or so when we’ll be able to get a taste. Stay tuned for an exact date.
3124 Georgia Avenue, NW
A new restaurant is coming to the former Tax Services storefront at 3124 Georgia Ave, NW. A liquor license application posted out front says:
“A new full scale restaurant serving Asian & African inspired food, with an atmosphere for lounging and listening to DJ music or Live Bands. Entertainment with a cover charge. Total number of seats is 99. Summer Garden seating is 18.”
Sounds promising! More info as it becomes available.
Girard and Sherman Avenue, NW
A few weeks ago I shared some news that a new restaurant was coming to the long vacant building at the corner of Girard and Sherman Ave, NW. Thanks to a reader I was able to speak with one of the owners – Sam Jahanbeen. Sam was kind enough to share his plans for the space. First of all Sam is the nephew of the owner of Saloon on U Street. And that’s not the only Saloon connection – Sam’s business partner is Kaleabe Getaneh the former bar manager of Saloon.
And like Saloon, The Hilltop Restaurant and Bar will focus on German beer and other imports. But in addition to the focus on beer the duo also plan to offer a solid dining option. Nothing fancy but comfortable “American fare”. The key to Sam is comfort. Unlike the Saloon, The Hilltop Restaurant and Bar will not enforce (love it or hate it) no standing rules. They hope to keep the atmosphere relaxed and a real neighborhood spot.
The restaurant and bar will take over the whole first floor. And in the warmer months there will be an outdoor seating area as well as a window that opens up like El Chucho on 11th Street and Pearl Dive on 14th Street. Lots of updates as construction progresses. Can’t wait for late Spring/early Summer!
