Progress at New Tavern Coming to 645 Florida Ave, NW in Shaw

645 Florida Ave, NW

Florida Ave week continues with 645. Back in Oct. 2011 we learned a new tavern called Inception was coming to 645 Florida Ave, NW in the former “we buy gold”/pawnshop space. At that time the liquor license application said:

“New Tavern. Tavern/Pub style menu. Live entertainment including DJ and occasional live music and dancing. Occupancy load is 399. Summer Garden 100 seats and Sidewalk Café 35 seats.”

I had forgot about the plans until I was walking by last weekend and noticed the outside was looking nice. It also looks like a little bar has been set up on the right hand of the building (though it appears walled off from the left hand side.) So, I’m not sure how this could possible fit 399 unless it connects next door and upstairs?


Anyway, in addition to the outside getting fixed up, late last month they applied for their sidewalk cafe under the name Brilliant LLC. Stay tuned:

For many remote workers, a messy home is distracting.

You’re getting pulled into meetings, and your unread emails keep ticking up. But you can’t focus because pet hair tumbleweeds keep floating across the floor, your desk has a fine layer of dust and you keep your video off in meetings so no one sees the chaos behind you.

It’s no secret a dirty home is distracting and even adds stress to your life. And who has the energy to clean after work? That’s why it’s smart to enlist the help of professionals, like Well-Paid Maids.
