6th and F Street, NW

Big news for Chinatown – the space that was going to become a bar from the owners Daikaya – has now been leased. It’s now going to become a bar from the owner of Mindful Restaurants which includes Ghibellina in Logan Circle and Acqua al 2 and Harold Black on Capitol Hill. The new spot is actually in the lower level around the corner from Fuel pizza on 6th Street in the historic OBA building:

Owner Ari Gejdenson and his wife Stacy plan on making this a proper liquor bar. It’s on the smaller side at about 2000 square feet. The description kinda reminds me of an old school hotel bar – lots of brass, lots of leather, proper cocktails including all the classics, nice glassware – just a cool, comfortable, classy spot. There will be some small food items available as well but the menu (and the name for that matter) haven’t been finalized yet. But work has begun and you can see the making of lots of awesome booths. There will be 8 of them and room for 12-14 at the bar. If all goes well they should open around the end of the summer/early Fall. Looking forward to seeing how this turns out but in the meantime – you can get a basic idea:
