PoPville Preview – Ivy and Coney Opening Jan. 1st in Shaw

1537 7th Street, NW

Well they haven’t opened up yet but we have a strong contender for future best dive bar in town – Ivy and Coney opens January 1st:

“The Team from Ivy And Coney is happy to announce our official opening date will be January 1st/New Years Day!

To get things started we will open early at 10am for our version of brunch with a small bowl of Fruit Loops – possibly milk- and a shot of Jameson and all the Hot Dogs you can eat!

We will have all the liquor we promised (including Malort) and on tap 312, Two Hearted, Old Style-ish, and Strohs in Cans. Prices start at $3 and stop at $6!

The home of Mediocre Beer and Great Hot Dogs is ready for you!”

back seating (including TV and nintendo)

The no frills spot is getting rarer and rarer in these parts so I’m super psyched for this spot. It doesn’t hurt that it comes from one of the owners of KBC (among others).

So a quick layout – it’s located on the second floor – you walk up the stairs and there is a big bar toward the right with some additional seating facing 7th Street. In the back is a lounge area that also has a tv – there are three big tvs for Cubs and Tigers fans. Of course they will show other sports but those folks have preference. In the summer there will be a roof deck off the back. To start there will be hotdogs but you can see the menu here (including drinks.) You will find no artisanal goat cheese here – you will however find some sweet sweet wallpaper. A welcome addition to the revival to the Shaw!
