“Anybody have the LD on @truxtoninn – looks ready to open. Right next to @MeatsAndFoods

Truxton Inn’s Facebook page says:

“Truxton Inn is a premier cocktail bar located in the Bloomingdale/Truxton neighborhood of Washington, DC.

Truxton Inn plans to open late Spring 2017.”

The CityPaper reported in December:

McClellan’s Retreat is gaining a sister bar in early 2017. The Truxton Inn will be located on the corner of Florida Avenue and 3rd Street NW and will have an intimate, cocktail bar feel.”

    Very much looking forward to this spot. Looks beautiful and I’m sure the drinks will be as well.

  • Truxton Thomas

    Welcome, neighbor.

  • DC-iite

    Great news and good luck to the owners. Can’t wait!

  • Dale Bloomington

    Congrats and welcome to the area!

  • Anon Spock

    They’re hiring, so probably very soon.

  • MadMax

    The early photos I saw of this place looked very nice, can’t wait to check it out.

  • Brett

    That’s an interesting way to spell Bloomingdale…

    • Truxton Thomas

      If Bloomingdale’s west boundary is 2nd Street, this isn’t in Bloomingdale. It’s nowhere. Doesn’t exist.

        Yeah this place is in the dead zone: not Shaw, not Truxton Circle (ironic), not Bloomingdale, not LeDroit Park.

        • Evan Tupac Grooter

          It’s the FRINJ (Florida, Rhode Island, New Jersey)

            This is one of the few neighborhood abbreviations I actually like.

    • asdf

      came in here to see the discussion of what to call the neighborhood and it did not disappoint. I agree that its probably a no man’s land – west of bloomingdale, south of ldp, north of truxton. you might be able to call it far east shaw

      • B’Dale Res

        various maps show it part of LDP (old Baist maps) and Bloomingdale. Deeds to home in Bloomingdale also depend on if you are north/south of RI Ave. North = LDP.

        I hope the owners are up to date on the plans by DC Water to make this a waste land for years on end. If not, they need to start attending the meetings.

    Any place that drives more business to the wonderful Meats &Foods is good by me!
