“Dear PoPville,

I passed Dickson’s Wine Bar earlier today and saw that it was ‘closed for repairs’. Interesting word choice. Perhaps they mean renovation? Lately, it seems things closing for renovation reopen as completely different concepts. Any word on whether Dickson’s will return as Dickson’s?”


Dickson opened up with great fanfare back in 2010. Updates when more is known.

    I hope they reopen soon, Dickson is my go to for a quiet drink on U street. I’ve been a little worried about their ability to stay open given just how quiet it has been recently, so hopefully a slight retooling will bring in more regulars.

      Did you check out the outdoor area in the back? Sometimes in the summer the inside seems dead but it’s because everyone is out back (through the basement level).

      But I agree with you, I like it for a quiet drink and some prime people watching!

    The OP seems a bit suspicious. Why not take them at their word that they are just closed for repairs? Things do break and need to be repaired sometimes, without bothering with a whole makeover.
