Update on Billy Simpson’s Coming to 3813 Georgia Ave, NW in Petworth

I’m happy to finally be able to share an update since the groundbreaking took place over a year and a half ago. We’ve got some serious progress! I was super psyched to a new permit go up on the front window:

A Demolition permit had been up for a while and while major demolition was accomplished we can now see a Building permit posted which is when the real build out takes place. Every time I walk by the space at 3813 Georgia Ave, NW (just north of the metro) I hear work going on. It seems like a late Autumn/early Winter opening isn’t out of the realm of possibility.

And another sign of more good news is that ANC rep Robert Mandle says that they’ve applied for an ABRA alcohol license which will likely be on the ANC’s September agenda (which is when you can show your support if you’d like, I’ll send a reminder at that time.)


For those not familiar with the project from the folks behind Marvin, Gibson, Blackbyrd and more you can read some background info here.
