“First things first: Nanny O’Briens is not closing its doors!
With our 25th anniversary just over the horizon in April 2018, we plan to continue operating on the Connecticut Avenue strip we’ve called home since 1993 with the same great burgers and pub food, large craft beer selection (and, of course, pints of Guinness), fun kids menu, and friendly service you expect from your neighborhood tavern.
However, things have been tough here. Over the past few years–and, in particular the past few months–as the face of Cleveland Park has changed and competition throughout DC has grown, foot traffic has gone down while the cost of rent, goods and labor have increased. This beloved neighborhood institution–owned by three Cleveland Park natives–is struggling to break even on some months.
We are now looking to you, our neighbors and friends, for support.
Starting at 12 noon this Thursday, August 31st, we will be offering a Thursday Neighborhood Discount of 20% off the bill for all our patrons who live in the 20008 and 20016 zip codes.
Now in the spirit of a rising tide lifting all boats, we reached out to our neighbors who will be running their own Thursday specials, including:
• Atomic Billiards will offer half priced pool with a purchase all night long and $5 draft beers from 8pm til close
• Spices Asian Restaurant will have $3.95 small plates and select sushi dishes, as well as half off their cocktail menu and beer
• Cleveland Park Bar & Grill will offer half priced wings from 5pm til midnight, as well as a new late night food, beer, and liquor happy hour after 10 pm on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays
• Fat Pete’s Barbecue will continue their select $3 draft beers at the bar from open til close
We are all united in trying to make Thursday a sort of weekly Cleveland Park day, a celebration of the neighborhood we call home. We hope that by offering these specials it will inspire the community to show its support for us at Nanny’s and our fellow local, small businesses.
Thank you for your continued support and we hope to see you all soon–and often!
