Tim Fegan reports over the weekend:

“Looks like Lola’s on Barracks Row is closed. Did I miss that news long ago?”

In September Capitol Hill Corner reported:

“DC Restaurateur Xavier Cervera Back as Owner of Eight Capitol Hill Restaurants

One of his first steps will be to temporarily close Lola’s Barracks Bar and Grill and begin a major refurbishment of the interior.”

    Dang, I liked the inside…

    Looks like all of his places are getting renovations. Outdoor bar at Chesapeake Room, new facade – signage at Senarts, work at Pacifico too.

      I don’t frequent these places as much as I used to, but the issue has never been the decor (which, while repetitive, I kind of like). I can’t speak to Lola’s but I’ve always found the food at these three to be mediocre or worse, and the service at Pacifico terrible. Lola’s used to be my jam 2008-2010ish, and during that time the service and food was always great, the only issue being how cramped the downstairs/original bar was. Don’t know how things stand now.

    None of this is good news.
