Washington, DC


Ed. Note: thanks to a reader for sending the initial heads up about Enology closing.

Enology Wine Bar located at 3238 Wisconsin Avenue, NW has closed and will reopen as Alliance Tavern:


Word on the street was that the owners will remain the same. However, the new place seems like it will be much more casual than Enology. A sign said that new space will also have a DJ.

I wonder if this is the beginning of the end of the Wine bar trend? But before I jump to conclusions I have to add that this location may be cursed as it seems to change businesses/names every few years. What do you guys think – has the wine bar trend run its course? Do you think we’ll see other wine bars around town either close or change their style?
