3226 11th Street, NW

A reader reports:

“Bad Saint expansion? I saw some construction workers moving in and out of the space next to Bad Saint (formerly a hair salon I believe) this morning. The space looked totally gutted and ready for renovation. How exciting would this be??!”

Back in February 2014 Bad Saint’s owner told us that an expansion into a neighboring space on 11th Street was likely. Looks like those plans are moving forward and it’s no surprise given the slew of accolades they’ve been receiving. Given some of the lines we’ve seen this is a very very good thing! Updates as construction progresses.

Update: Sadly, owner Nick Pimentel says no expansion at this time.

    If they’re not expanding next door does it mean they’re focusing on the old Heller’s space?

    Does anyone know what the space next to Bad Saint will be then?

    • There are rumors that will be addressed shortly – hold tight!

        Anyone who puts in a decent bar will be successful if only because people need somewhere to kill time while waiting for Bad Saint to call them. That said, I’m excited. I live a block away from here and will never complaint about more bars near me.
