Shaw’s Tavern Update

Dear PoPville,

I have seen people cooking and cleaning at shaws tavern and update on them?

Back in mid-Dec. we learned of the new owners taking over the space.

Since that time they have applied for a new liquor license which says the new Shaw’s Tavern will be a:

“New Tavern. Gastro pub style American food, gourmet coffee and deserts. Jazz and Classical music as live entertainment. Occupancy load is 260. Sidewalk Café has 35 seats.”

In early Jan. Eater DC did an interview which revealed some interesting details:

First of all, it’s going to be a casual place. It’s not going to be fine dining. With the setup and everything it would be hard to go that way. You will see a lot of microbreweries still here and a lot of wine and also cocktails. Cocktails may be a little focused on American liquors and brands. Beers are mostly going to be microbreweries from the US, a lot of them from around here. And then back of the house, obviously, is all his.

The only change I did to the space is I got rid of some of those couches and I ordered some more of those high-tables that we have so that people have more tables to sit and actually eat. The only thing is they have leased the whole building now and the upstairs is commercial, so we’re thinking to expand upstairs in the near future. It’s going to be private dining.

And then we’re planning to hopefully add a rooftop deck as well.

Shaw’s Tavern is located at 520 Florida Ave, NW. I will update when an exact opening date is announced.
