1738 14th Street, NW

Getting closer to Chicken and Whiskey on 14th Street. It’ll be located right next door to the (potential) future Dacha beer garden in the former One World Fitness space:

14th and S Street, NW

No word yet if anti-chicken signs have been spotted on S Street. STAY TUNED.

    Back home we had Max’s Wine Dive–fried chicken and champagne. I think I’m more excited about this combo! See how it fares versus The Bird.

    I live a few blocks away and am just glad to see SOMETHING coming into that space. That row of vacant storefronts is long overdue some revitalization.

      Just noticed NACA has vacated and now that space is for lease. I think that is 2 spaces as well.

    “No word yet if anti-chicken signs have been spotted on S Street. STAY TUNED.”
    I doubt the S Street neighbors care about an indoor restaurant. I don’t blame them for being concerned about an outdoor beer garden with a history of creating bad blood with its neighbors in Shaw.

      In case it wasn’t obvious, that was a joke.

        It seemed like a joke with a little bit of teeth to it.

        Also, it seemed like many of the commenters in previous Dacha threads failed to realize that the S Street neighbors were protesting _this particular establishment_ — not anything and everything proposed for the area.

        • Bobert

          I disagree with that assessment. I think folks understood exactly what was being protested (it’s obvious); the conversation just took a relevant turn.

      • It was completely a joke with no teeth. Just a tongue.

          Ewww! ;)

      I think it was a creative way to make sure there voice is heard. If I were them I would want to provide serious input on hours of operations, music levels, trash, and loading. In reality this project is going to happen, I just hope they realize that and use their temporary power to help mold the situation instead of thinking their only objective is to stop it.

    I believe Chicken + Whisky already have their alcohol license, so there’s nothing to protest. If they turn out to be bad business neighbors, then the neighborhood residents can file complaints with ABRA to seek relief.

      Don’t bring logic into this.

    They need to stop doing construction work on Sunday. My neighbor called illegal construction on them last week.
