The eagerly awaited Dew Drop Inn from the owners of Wonderland in Columbia Heights (Rose Donna and Mathew McGovern plus Wonderland’s manager Matt Szymanski) finally opens on Wednesday. And it is awesome. It is awesome not only because of the team but because quite frankly the building is so freaking cool. It is an old industrial building, formerly home to Chocolate City Brewery on the first floor where Dew Drop Inn will eventually expand into. There’s just something about a cool old building that’s hard to explain but it just feels like the real deal. It actually feels like the bar has been around for decades. And part of that is of course because of the great eye of Matthew McGovern.

Some bars open up and while cool it kinda feels like they’re trying too hard. With Wonderland and now Dew Drop Inn – it’s authentic. It’s not forced. Mathew really does dig this shit.  He has an eye for awesome bric a brac. Not too mention the amazing bar salvaged (from I forget where.) You’ll see what I mean when you see all the photos:

Actually, you’ll see what I mean when you check it out in person. They open tomorrow starting at 4pm (will be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays for now.)  They’re located at 2801 8 Street, NE right near an entrance to the MBT and the CSX train tracks and around the corner from those who know Mess Hall.
