PoP Preview – Touchdown – Opening Today at 1334 U St, NW

Back in Jan. we learned that Touchdown would be replacing Momo’s Sports Bar and Codmother would be opening up on the ground level. I’m happy to report that Touchdown is opening up today and Codmother expects to open up in another month or so. I was able to attend a soft opening for Touchdown last night and snapped lots of photos.

For those familiar with the former Momo’s space – it is a very similar layout that feels much fresher and brighter. It continues to occupy two floors and the third floor space will likely feature some sorta music component but those plans weren’t revealed last night. But back to Touchdown, there is an ode to the 1924 Champion Senators and old baseball pictures cover many walls. But for soccer fans – fear not – there is still a DC United banner flying proudly.

You can see lots of photos including the menu after the jump but I just wanted to add one more cool feature from the bar – they are looking to include a bocce component in the nearby park on the 1300 block of V St, NW.

An email this morning lists some events for the Grand Opening today:
