Back in October of last year we posted some scuttlebutt about two new Hilton brothers bars coming to Logan Circle – French 75 and Player’s Club. Ed. Note: I believe the latter is pronounced Play-ahs Cloo-b. The liquor licenses have now been posted – Player’s Club will be going into the Lower Level:
“A new neighborhood pool hall. Seating capacity of 90 inside. Total Occupancy Load of 275. The Tavern will include Entertainment Endorsement and Cover Charge.”
And upstairs will be French 75:
“A new craft cocktail lounge with two floors and an outdoor rooftop Summer Garden. Seating for 85 indoors on the 2nd floor, seating for 10 indoors on the 7th floor, and seating for 80 in the rooftop Summer Garden. Total Occupancy Load indoors on the 2nd floor is 290. Total Occupancy Load indoors on the 7th floor is 30. Total Occupancy Load outdoors on the rooftop Summer Garden is 110. The Tavern will include an Entertainment Endorsement with Cover Charge.”
Eric and Ian Hilton are also behind Marvin, Gibson, Brixton, Chez Billy Sud, American Ice Company, Satellite Room, Crimson (the new whiskey bar in Chinatown), El Rey, Ten Tigers Parlour, Bar Roubaix (th new bicycle bar coming to old Acre 121) and more coming.

Speaking of garbage/recycling cans – check out this alley in Pleasant Plains between Sherman and Georgia Avenues. I have never seen this long of a row, both sides, this neat:

From a press release:
“The team behind Duke’s Grocery in Dupont Circle and Duke’s Counter in Woodley Park will open a new location at 2000 Pennsylvania Avenue NW in Foggy Bottom. The new location will also be named Duke’s Grocery and is slated to open in late 2018.
Fans of the two current Duke’s locations will recognize a robust brunch menu, active bar scene, creative sandwiches and sunny patio. Also featured will be the beloved Proper Burger, consistently rated the District’s Best Burger. At over 4,500 square feet, the new venture will be the largest of the three Duke’s restaurants, which will provide Executive Chef Jillian Catterton space and flexibility for more menu options. The East London-inspired menu will continue to offer seasonal salads, white truffle mac & cheese, curries, and rotating specials including Sunday Roast, lamb shanks and salt beef. (more…)

In partnership with the Latino Economic Development Center, we’ve been working with corner store owners on Georgia Avenue (Petworth) on re-merchandising and re-thinking their operations, product offerings for this new economy — vastly different than when they opened their operations 20+ years ago.
Especially with the recent chatter over this Silicon Valley startup, I would love to pose to the greater PoP community, what are they looking for from their local corner store? What types of products? What type of ambiance? What would make you frequent that corner store for a cup of sugar, a stick of butter — your neighborhood shop — instead of driving to Walmart?
I’d love to feature Uneeda Market (photo above.) The owner has an amazing vision and story. I’ve attached a few photos here: fresh baked cookies made each day; the best morning deal — a cup of coffee and breakfast sandwich for $4.50; and his homemade Ethiopian beef and curry chicken meals for $5.95.”
If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood.

My property management company Nest unexpectedly announced that they are changing our roommate swap policy. Now every time my group house changes roommates we will forfeit our portion of the security deposit instead of paying a flat $200 change fee. Nest argues that we are expected to come and go as a group, but this runs totally contrary to the group house dynamic in DC. No one who lives in the house even signed the original lease in 2013 — we were all added in addendums. This backdoor fee hike is asking a lot of us and I expect a lot of group houses will break apart before the new policy takes effect. My question to the community is whether there is anything in DC’s tenant law that would protect us from this unwelcome surprise?”
