Black Whiskey Opening in former Mar de Plata Space in Logan Circle

1410 14th Street, NW

Tons of Logan Circle news this week. This space has been vacant since Mar de Plata closed back in May ’09. For a hot second it looked like a Fiat dealership would be taking over the space. Yesterday Washingtonian shared details about the Black Whiskey bar which will be taking over the space:

Darren Lee Norris says his new project, Black Whiskey, will debut in about 90 days.

Word came in the fall that the Kushi chef-owner signed a lease at 1410 14th Street, Northwest, and is transforming the two-story space into a whiskey bar and mixed-use art gallery.

More details on the space here.

We judged Kushi back in March 2010.
