1539 7th Street, NW

Last week we noted The Passenger was looking ready to open in their new digs soon. And soon, sorta, means Monday the 15th. They’ll be having a “Rent Party”:

“We’re having a Rent party on Monday, August 15th. Why? Because it’s the 15th and we still gotta pay rent! Our friends @FilibusterDC are bringing the rye, and @schlitzbrewing is sending the beer. @HariKaraoke is helping you supply the tunes! $40 (cash) at the door for all the beers, shots and live band karaoke, 8p-12a Monday!!!!”

It’s a Monday in August so there probably won’t be too many people around…or it’s gonna be the greatest party of the summer!

  • This isn’t actually “open” though, right? I’m really torn on this one. Knowing them it will be a great party regardless, but I also kinda want my first impression of the new space to be the full monty, so to speak.

    If they ever ditch that off-putting “God Save the District” tagline I might think about stopping in.

      Why is it off-putting?

    • The previous iteration managed to be one of the single best bars in the entire city with the same window sticker. Are you going for drinks or interior decorating tips?

        THis…. What a strange original comment.

          I’m guessing they took issue with “God”. (I heard you have to recite the first 3 verses from Paul 4:20 before they’ll even ask you for your order!)

            Maybe Jas is not a punk fan?

          • hahaha that’s what I was thinking!

            Having been to the Passenger many times, I’ve never been asked to recite that.

          • @lizcolleena, that’s probably because there is no book of “Paul” in the Bible, and if there were it probably wouldn’t have a verse 4:20.

      More booze and good times for us!

    • P. Lecheval

      I think it’s dumb for sure, but off-putting??

    Monday night is a service industry party night. The Brown brothers and friends will be thrashing around like teenagers at a punk show in the 90s. If that interests you, check it out…
