1345 S Street, NW behind Garden District

More good news for cocktail fans – Left Door, the highly anticipated new cocktail bar from the Passenger’s Tom Brown opens tonight to the public (there was a soft opening late last week.) Hours are:

Sun-Thurs 5pm-2am
Fri-Sat Noon-3am

Also from an email:

“We’ll also be doing monthly cocktail classes and a tea service on weekends and upon request.”

  • Nice! Anyone see an official menu? (I remember preview menus floating around that were mistaken for Passenger menus a while back).

    Does this really count as Logan? S St. is closer to U than Logan Circle. I’ve always wondered what you’d call this neighborhood.

    • I’m pretty sure the northern boundary for Logan Circle neighborhood is T St.

      • GBinCH

        I’ve never known that! I always just thought of this as the bottom end of the U Street corridor.

        • FridayGirl

          me too!

        • Yeah, I’m not sure I would have known had I not lived there and bothered to look :) But it’s one of the most repeatedly contentious zone-argued-hoods on this site, along with the Park View / Petworth / etc area and Capitol Hill / Hill East.

            The boundaries of Park View and Petworth are pretty clear… except to a certain person. ;)

          • What are you talking about – I use traditional 1893 boundaries. And Park View’s recent expanded boundaries used by a very few people that live there are very recent. I wish I could walk you around DC in 2002 when I first started walking around Petworth and Georgia Ave – seriously. If we can all admit neighborhood names and boundaries change over time – we will all be in a better place. Amen.

            Hahaha…. that was the best thing I’ve read all day. True ‘dat.

      • dcgator

        I think it’s S St as the boundary…I live on T, and we’re considered U St area.

        • Oh you’re right, it is S Street, my memory is poo-poo. Since this is on the north side of the street I guess it might technically not be Logan Circle.

    • oh2dc

      Yeah, I kind of paused and wondered this myself when I read it. This location is right off 14th St, so I might have initially considered it the 14th St corridor (although I am sure some would not like that designation). But, calling it Logan is not crazy either.

    • I Dont Get It

      The Logan Circle Community Association defines it as “The Association represents the Greater Logan Circle area, officially bounded by S Street to the north, K Street to the south, 9th Street to the east and 16th Street to the west. Membership is open to anyone who resides or owns a business or property within its boundaries.”

      But I would be VERY happy for the boundary to move to T St.

    Mick Perrigo is awesome. Too bad this place is probably way out of my budget.

  • Cocktailer

    Is this the new Columbia Room? I’d heard good things, but never had the chance to go.

    • Anon Spock

      No, that’s still coming.

      • (and the original Columbia Room is the best cocktail bar I’ve ever visited in DC, and one of the best in the country)

        • Cocktailer

          Nice! I hope it’s still happening. Will definitely have to splurge and check it out once it opens.
