Washington, DC

1216 18th Street, NW

Way back in Oct. 2011 we first learned that the Guitar Bar would be coming to the former Guitar Shop space above Shack Shake:

Upscale tavern serving European sausages, hotdogs, pretzels and popcorns featuring DJ and background music. No designated dance floor – no dancing. Summer Garden with 210 seats. Seating capacity is 60. Total occupancy load is 330.

Hadn’t heard much about the place since. Last week ANC2B posted:

Whereas the construction at this location has begun without appropriate permitting;

Whereas construction continued despite stop work orders issued by the District;

Whereas the construction team illegally removed stop work orders on multiple occasions;

Whereas ANC 2B has already negotiated an alcoholic beverage “Voluntary Agreement” for this location with certain limitations negotiated for the roof structure;

Therefore be it resolved that ANC 2B asks HPRB to ensure that any concept design is consistent with those terms of the Voluntary Agreement;

Be it further resolved that ANC 2B does not currently have objection to the renderings as presented but requests a full presentation to the DCC and the ZPD commmittee prior to the HPRB hearing at the end of April.
