1821 18th Street, NW

Ed. Note: I like the name change to Swann Dive.

Back in April we learned Saloon 45 (now hoping to be called Swann Dive) would be coming to the former Sandy’s Flower Shop:

“Will provide a small menu approximately 5 to 7 items of mostly fried foods along with over 50 specialty craft beers chosen mostly from local brewers. We have a small selection of wines and cocktails. Drinks and food will be provided in a quiet relaxing environment either inside at a table or outside in our summer garden. Summer Garden Seats #36, Total Occupancy Load #85.”

Interesting update from Short Articles about Long Meetings:  [“ABRA held a closed hearing about the matter on August 6, according to official records (see page 4 of a 22-page .pdf here), and will issue a decision within 60 days”] via ANC Rep Will Stephens:

“Our Ward 2 Council Member Jack Evans has submitted a letter supporting the protest and asking the Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Board to full-out deny the new license application. The letter is here. This is highly unusual, because normally Council Members do not get involved in liquor license requests.”

Updates when a ruling is announced.
