1537 7th Street, NW
From a press release:
“Opening in Fall 2013, Ivy and Coney will be a small, neighborhood bar located at 1537 7th St NW in the Shaw neighborhood in Washington, D.C. It brings the atmosphere of a Chicago corner bar with Detroit prices and Midwestern hospitality to our ever-diverse capital. The spot comes from Kangaroo Boxing Club owners Josh Saltzman and Chris Powers (originally from Chicago and Detroit), bartender Adam Fry (Chicago) and native Washingtonian, Jamie Hess.
Ivy and Coney is built on a foundation of simplicity: sometimes a good hot dog, a cold beer, and a game on is all you’re looking for in your night. The menu includes Chicago-style and Detroit Coney-style hot dogs, Chicago Italian beefs, peanuts, and cracker jacks. The beers will include Strohs, Old Style, Goose Island 312, and Bell’s Two Hearted along with a quality selection of spirits and sodas. All of these can be enjoyed while sports (with an emphasis on Chicago, Detroit, and D.C. teams) play across several TVs throughout the bar.
Additionally, we will be bringing a new concept to the D.C. area for those who want a wider selection of spirits by offering reserved liquor lockers. Our customers will have the opportunity to purchase a broad collection of different labels at a highly discounted service rate, store their choices on site, and have our staff serve up their favorite drinks.
Founded on the “corner tavern” mentality and built with a passion for good value, we aim to make Ivy and Coney a great edition to the DC community.
If you’d like to be a part of opening of Ivy and Coney check out our Indiegogo Page to be a part of the project.”
Ed. Note: Ivy and Coney will be located near the new Dacha beer garden coming to 7th and Q St, NW.
