New Sports Bar and Tavern, The Pitch, opening Monday in Petworth

4015 Georgia Ave, NW just south of Taylor Street

Your prayers have been answered. Well some of your prayers have been answered. Let me rephrase, my prayers have been answered. We first heard about The Pitch back in May but the liquor license placard language was way off (not to be a Jazz Lounge) this is going to be a real deal sports bar. And for my fellow soccer fans, there is a huge international component. Hours will be Sun.-Thurs. 4pm-12am and Fri.-Sat. 4pm – 2am with happy hour 4-7pm Mon.-Fri.

I stopped in for a chat with the owner and general manager. You’ll just have to trust me on this until you get to check it out for yourself – this place is the real deal. There are two levels with flat screen tvs and a projector for big games/matches. In addition to all DC sports teams they’ll be a huge “destination for international sports” including Premier League and La Liga soccer matches as well as cricket and rugby.

Co-owner Jay Narain says:

We have created a venue that appeals to a diverse crowd, including families, sports fans and most importantly the resident of the Petworth community, both old and new. Like our neighborhood, our menu is a little Caribbean meets Southern comfort, meets Americana; together that creates some damn good food. Who doesn’t want that?

Hell freaking yes!!! And for real the guy is a down to earth honest to goodness good guy.


Oh yeah they have a sweet roof deck (and in the spring will have a nice back patio too):


And here’s some more info from the owners plus some sweet photos they had hanging on the walls as a taste of what’s to come

“The Pitch Tavern is celebrating its opening week, beginning Monday, January 5th! Located on Georgia Avenue in the up-and-coming Petworth neighborhood, The Pitch offers a two-level space that will treat sports fans to an exciting viewing experience featuring a projection TV and multiple flat screen TV’s. Along with being a proud supporter of DC’s home teams, The Pitch will also be the destination for international sports including Premier League and La Liga matches, cricket and rugby to name just a few. But we’re more than great sports! In the near future, The Pitch will offer live music and DJs, karaoke, and much more! 

Celebrate our opening week with daily food and drink specials showcasing our fantastic menu and thirst-quenching libations.

For our opening week, we keep the festivities going through the weekend with live bands on Friday and Saturday nights.

”We are excited about bringing this concept to Petworth,” says co-owner Jay Narain, who has lived in the neighborhood for over 40 years. “We have created a venue that appeals to a diverse crowd, including families, sports fans and most importantly the residents of the Petworth community, both old and new. Like our neighborhood, our menu is a little Caribbean, meets Southern comfort, meets Americana; together that creates some damn good food. Who doesn’t want that?”

The menu offers such classic “game day” items as savory hamburgers, wings, and sausage and peppers, but also provides such palate pleasing selections as Southern fried chicken, shrimp curry, and a New York sirloin cooked to order. Our menu will eventually expand to include brunch on Saturday and Sunday so you can watch the EPL match of the day while inhaling our chicken and waffles.

”We plan to offer all the premier sporting events,” continues Narain, who has incorporated into the decor local and international sports memorabilia, “and we look forward to hosting many sports related and community events.

My motivation for The Pitch Tavern was my desire to create a place for all people to come and enjoy themselves. Good food, good vibes, and good times – always.”
