Barracks Row Scuttlebutt and General Updates

First the scuttlebutt, I hear that the owner of nearby Lola’s and soon to open Cheseapeake Room (see below) has purchased the Veterinary clinic on the 500 block of 8th Street, SE (pictured above). More info on this space as it becomes available. As it is only scuttlebutt the purchase of the property has not yet been confirmed.

Barracks Row seems to be getting as many new bars/restaurants as H Street, NE. Georgia Ave has a bit of catching up to do…


And here are a few new restaurants on Barracks Row that we have previously discussed here. And the building from the owner’s of Matchbox is looking good as well:


Continues after the jump.


Capitol Hill Bikes has reopened a few storefronts down from it’s old spot in a smaller space at 719 8th Street, SE.


And as a reader noted last week the Cricket Store on 8th Street, SE has now become a Boost Mobile. The Cricket stores that I passed in NW DC still have their Cricket signs.
