Former Piassa space becoming a Wine Bar, Maxwell Park, from Brent Kroll

Back in January we learned that Piassa had closed, contributing to the 9th Street Massacre. The bleeding has officially stopped. Washingtonian reports:

“Kroll hopes to make his wine bar stand out from the pack with a rotation of offbeat themes. One month, half of the 5o wines by the glass (or half-glass) may all come from islands. Another month, he might feature wines from volcanic soil or “ABPG” (Anything But Pinot Grigio) indigenous white grapes from Italy.”

Earlier this week a reader snapped a photo and wrote:

“Sure looks like they’re building a bar of some sort in the old piassa space.”

Updates as he gets closer to opening.

    Are we supposed to know who Brent Kroll is?

    Interesting concept, but I don’t think the neighborhood needs another wine bar… especially with La Jambe literally two blocks over.

      I like La Jambe a lot but a more intimate and cozy wine bar would be nice. Looking forward to seeing how this turns out.

    Hey Dan, have you seen the updates to Truxton Inn next to Meats and Foods on Florida Ave NW? I walked past and noticed a new sign outside, then found them on FB with some interior shots – looks swanky!
