1230 9th Street, NW

Hmm back in June we learned that Fino Tavern was finally coming to this space across from the Convention Center. I just noticed the signage 12 Thirty Restaurant & Champagne Lounge.  Maybe Fino will be taking the lower level?  Stay tuned.

9th Street looking north towards Lost & Found, All Purpose and Espita Mezcaleria.

    Methinks its time to widen the sidewalks on 9th Street NW between L and U Streets. With all the little cubs playing and ambling around on the weekends, it’s starting to get a bit crowded on that stretch of jungle! Roar.

      Good luck with that ;-)

    Champagne lounge? Sometimes I feel as though I’m living in (or ubering towards) Wiemar Germany or one of Gatsby’s parties — a glorious burst of self-conscious decadence before the whole house of cards collapses. I guess there’s nothing to do except put my assets into overseas gold, decide between Beluga and Ossetra, and see what vintages of Grand Dame they have on the fizz list. Maybe buy a cake to leave out for the peasants on the way home.

    There was a terrific champagne lounge in Georgetown 20 years ago – Flutes. Perhaps this one will approximate that. I had a fabulous divorce party there.

      I was just thinking of Flutes when I read this article!

    Yes Fino will be on the lower level. From Eater re: 1230 and the Chef: Chef Malik Fall is aiming to open 1230 at 1230 9th St. NW. by the end of February. (sic!!) The 4500 square foot restaurant will span two floors and have a lounge and whiskey bar. There will also be a 1000 square foot deck with a retractable roof.

      Word is this place will open Nov. 1
