Meet Marvin For Real This Time

Arguably the most anticipated new bar and restaurant, Marvin, has opened on 14th Street just north of U Street. This was the bar that had the soft opening last week. If you like Eighteenth Street Lounge and Local 16 you are going to love this place. It mirrors a similar exclusivity like ESL as you can only spot the place by a tiny sign (pictured) on its front door. But don’t be fooled by that subtlety. Despite the muted decor on the outside it is quite swank on the inside. You’ll find the restaurant on the first floor. The restaurant has a Belgian theme and offers Steak Frites ($24), Lobster Waterzooi ($25), lots of Moules Frites choices ($16), a Marvin Burger ($15) and a number of other choices.

On the second floor you’ll find a small bar, a DJ area, a small sitting space, and this is where I imagine the dancing will take place.

But perhaps the greatest feature is the nice spacious outdoor bar and deck. This area will open year round and will have heaters in the winter.

Marvin is a super cool space but make sure to bring plenty of cash. Draught beers run $6 for a Stella to $8 for a Duvel. A glass of the pinot noir cost $9. And of course they have all the Chimay colors in bottles for $8. I thought I was going to feel a little out of place in jeans and a track top but the dress was rather varied from pretty posh to, er well, jeans and track tops. It was pretty damned crowded for its first weekend open so I have no doubt that this is going to be a must visit destination for many.
