Back in April 2012 we learned that Executive Chef Ari Gejdenson From Acqua Al 2 would be taking over the former HR-57 space at 1610 14th St, NW next to Pearl Dive/Black Jack. I was psyched to see the new front revealed:

Some sweet history too:

While the renovations are turning out to be pretty sweet, I do admit to missing the music:

    i loved having HR-57 right there, but this place looks like it’s going to be sweet too.

    HR-57 was one of the lamest bars in town, but the music was pretty good.

    Can’t wait to try the Italian food here. We don’t have enough Italian food in town. Acqua Al #3?

      you didn’t really go there for the drinkies… esp. since you could BYO. the jazz is probably the best in the city.

    • none of this is true

      i also hate cheap booze & live jazz and i just can’t wait for another overpriced “italian” restaurant!

        Relax, Brad, HR-57 has relocated to the “hip” neighborhood in town.

      once the shaw dupont citizens alliance gets their moratorium we won’t be seeing any more of these

  • Please, please, ramp the entrance step during your renovation to provide at least some wheelchair access.

    Looks fantastic! Thank god one of the local churches didn’t own it or it’d be torn down or turned into a slum.

    HR-57 still exists — it just moved to H Street, NE.
