A couple of weeks ago Alliance Tavern closed their doors at 3238 Wisconsin Avenue, NW. Thanks to a reader for the heads up on the coming soon sign recently posted. It says that the new spot will be called District 2 Bar & Grille and comes from the owners of The Ugly Mug on Barrack’s Row and Maddy’s Bar and Grille in Dupont.
Their Web site says:
“District 2 Bar & Grille comes to the Cathedral Heights neighborhood with a mouth-watering formula of consistently great food combined with a casual and inviting dining ambiance. Located at the corners of Wisconsin and Macomb, NW, District 2 is the neighborhood’s only sports bar & grille.
The atmosphere is all about welcoming community dwellers and serving up quality food and drink, including more than a dozen domestic and imported brews. The delectable menu, created by accomplished Executive Chef J. Scott Webster, formerly of the Clyde’s Restaurant Group, combines the gourmet flavors of fine dining with the unique flare of your favorite bar, including their irresistible mini burgers and crowd favorites, sweet potato fries. ”

Before Alliance Tavern, this space was the home to Enology wine bar, and prior to that it was a coffee lounge under a few names including the Zebra room. For those familiar with the Ugly Mug and Maddy’s, do you think a similar spot will be a good fit here?
