PoP Preview – Birch & Barley and Church Key – Grand Opening Thursday!


This is a huge spot located at 1337 14th Street, NW (which used to be the old Dakota Cowgirl space). It is actually two concepts. Downstairs is the more restaurant focused Birch & Barley and upstairs is the beer focused Church Key (though there are also dining options for the upstairs space). I was able to take some preview photos on Wed. and the place is looking good – it finally opens to the public on Thursday. Be sure to let me know what you think. For the beer lovers, you will have lots and lots of options (500 bottles, 50 drafts, and 5 casks).



Lots more photos after the jump.


Above is the downstairs front section that will open up in the warmer months.


Bar on the first floor features a “beer organ”. Sweet.


Huge bar upstairs (75 feet).


Not all the taps were set up yet, but that’s still a pretty killer sight.


Upstairs front section. (The back section will be more lounge like but it wasn’t set up yet).


This was my favorite part.

If anyone stops by tomorrow night be sure to let us know how it goes.
