1414 14th Street, NW just south of P Street

Well this is great news for Logan – a cool subterranean spot is coming to the long vacant space underneath Savon Liquor (once planned to be Faces). And the folks behind it have great subterranean experience! The owners are Daniel Williams, formerly the GM of Iron Horse, along with Ben Sislen, of Shaw Yoga and Big Chief. Sam Buis is the General Manager and comes from 10 years behind the bar and 15 in the industry, most recently bartending at Jackpot and Iron Horse. Stay tuned for updates as they get closer to opening this month.

From the owners:

Kingfisher will be a warm and welcoming space for the 14th street neighborhood, staffed by knowledgeable and engaging industry professionals. We have focused on building a fun and friendly community who will make Kingfisher a low-key space to hang out with friends. We will have popcorn (with a variety of seasonings), free koozies, an awesome curated jukebox, TVs loaded with funky old shows and movies, really cozy spaces, an upcoming trivia night, and more stuff to come.

Along with our regular happy hour (seven days a week!), we will feature can and shot combos that get people a good deal on both. We will also have a reasonably priced and approachable craft cocktail menu. And lest we forget, canned wine.”

    Sounds great, except for the cocktails. Do they have to be craft? Really?

    • TrendWatcher

      …as opposed to what, “crap cocktails”??? Just enjoy a bar that the neighborhood desperately needs.

        A bar the neighborhood desperately needs? Did I miss the story about the overnight closures of two dozen bars within four blocks of this place?

        • TrendWatcher

          That was a good one, you should really pat yourself on the back for such a witty comment…. It will be really refreshing to have a bar with no gimmick on a street that has become very generic.

      You make the same exact comment with every new press release. This one actually gives me the impression that this will be a great chill spot. I don’t mind the “craft” mention.

      • P. Lecheval

        This place actually does sound pretty cool, but they couldn’t resist using the word “craft” in their press release. These bars and restaurants deserve to be called out for using such trite, nebulous adjectives. It shows a lack of creativit.

    • Anon Spock

      You can still get a vodka/soda; don’t worry.

    • JohnH

      I’m curious what their definition of “reasonably priced” is. $9 vs. $11?

  • mastodfow

    Sweet! Here’s hoping they have a couple of dart boards, too! (Hint, hint.)

    I had heard Daniel was in town working on a new place (and so excited for Sam, fantastic promotion for him!). Can’t wait!!
