I noticed today an alcohol license sign in the window of the building next to Montserrat House at 2014 9th st NW (to the left of it if you’re facing it). It says it will be a bar with music, a cover, and bar food. No name or other details. There is a recent building permit in the doorway window that lists Montserrat House as the applying party, so I am not sure if this is an expansion or what. Have you heard anything?”
The liquor license says:
“New Tavern. Neighborhood gathering place, offering music and tavern food, with Entertainment, Cover Charge, Dancing, and DJ or band (maximum 7 pieces). No designated dance floor. Total occupancy load of 100 and total number of seats is 49. Summer Garden with 49 seats.”
As you noted this building is owned by the same folks who own Montserrat House – the Hilton brothers (Marvin, Gibson, Blackbyrd, Chez Billy etc.) Stay tuned for more info on the concept of this one as it becomes available.
