Washington, DC

1400 14th Street, NW

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.
