We recently learned that HR 57 would be moving from 14th St in Logan Circle to H St, NE. A liquor license application went up this weekend listing the exact new address – 816 H St, NE. The application says:

New tavern with Entertainment that includes live music and cover charge. Occupancy load is 130.

Sunday through Tuesday 11 am –12 am, Wednesday and Thursday 11 am – 1 am and Friday & Saturday 11 am – 2:30 am”

I can’t wait to see what it looks like on the inside.

    Anything they do to that hideous spectacle of a facade will be a help. That standing-seam metal awning and window unit above look pretty new, but in a bad way. There is also a complete absence of the architectural detail found in the adjacent buildings, but maybe some is hiding behind the trim.

    One nice thing about the old HR57 site was it was BYOB, so it made for a far less expensive night out. Hope that doesn’t go away.

    H St NE is/isn’t a safe destination for a night out.

      Is anywhere in the city a safe place to go out? I say no. Lots of shit happens on U street, Adams, DuPont, M Street, etc. What kind of hipster cred would we have if we went out where it’s safe?

      i’ve never had a problem there. but i wouldn’t take my grandmother out for a birthday dinner there.

    Steve sounds like a fragile young man. Take back your city.

    I’m with Steve. I live in NE, but am terrified to go out anywhere but Reston Town Center. As you might imagine, it’s put a terrible crimp in my social life.
