‘Last Exit’ Speakeasy from the Owners of Tonic, Coming Soon to Mt. Pleasant

Back in Dec. ’10 we learned that Tonic was planning to expand into the vacant space below Radius at 3155 Mt. Pleasant St, NW. A reader sends in a quick update from The Feast:

“With about 30 seats, it’ll be more of a laid-back lounge with an emphasis on good drinks. “We’re going a little bit higher-end on the cocktails”, he says. “We’re not interested in doing the $25 cocktail, but really good quality, old-school drinks at a fair price”.”

The Last Exit Web site says:

“The entrance was dimly lit, but I knew exactly where to go. I could hear the laughter coming from outside the pocket door. Someone asks, “Is this where it is”? Clearly no one responds. If you must ask then the answer assumingly is no.”

You can take a look at some of the Cocktails here.

I stopped by Tonic on Tues. to check on the status, I was able to take a quick peek and there is still a good bit of construction that needs to be completed. Nevertheless, I was told that they are likely to open by the end of the month. I’ll be sure to update when an exact date is set. Despite the fact that the blurb from their Web site sounds like a J. Peterman ad written by Elaine Benes, I still think this has awesome potential.
