After our brief reader update last week I wanted to talk to Project Manager Ted Trabue to get a bit more info. He was kind enough to meet me Tues. afternoon at the space at 3632 Georgia Ave, NW next to Looking Glass Lounge.
Let me start off by setting the record straight (no pun intended) on some reader speculation – despite the name it’s not going to be a gay sports bar in the mold of Nellie’s on U St, NW. (In the words of Jerry Seinfeld, not that there’s anything wrong with that!) It is going to be a sports bar for everyone – gay, straight, black, white, men, women, football fans, soccer fans and even cricket fans if folks are interested. In other words – this is going to be a sports bar that will cater to the entire community/neighborhood.
Now a bit more about the bar. As you can tell from the photos, the construction has progressed nicely and they should be finished in the next week or so. The construction team is the same folks behind Clyde’s and Old Ebbit Grill downtown so they are very experienced. If and of course that is a big if – all the permits are acquired in a timely manner, the bar should open the first week of December. There is no kitchen in the facility but fresh food will be catered on a daily basis.
There will be 12 draft beers, consisting of a mix of domestic and imported, on tap. There will be 9 TVs with the possible addition of a 10th. The bar will seat between 12-15 and the total capacity inside will be around 80. There will be a small outdoor area out back that will hold 4 tables. As mentioned above they will show all sports and will try as best as possible to cater to the requests of the patrons.
So for now, let’s all hope that they get their permits in a timely manner! I’ll update when the menu, beer list and an exact date for opening is released.
