“First Ruta, now Hank’s”

Hank’s Cocktail Bar writes:

“Hank’s Cocktail Bar is boxing up shop on December 14th & moving to the 2nd floor of our flagship location, Hank’s Oyster Bar in Dupont Circle. Same great cocktails, same Hank’s hospitality, awesome new space. Stay up to date on social media for our January 2019 reopening date. It’s not goodbye… it’s see you soon!”

Ed. Note: Brief but beloved Ruta Del Vino closed last month on Upshur Street after two years in Petworth.

Hank’s first opened on Upshur Street as Twisted Horn back in January 2016. They changed names to Hank’s Cocktail Bar back in November 2016. Updates when we learn what becomes of the property. A look at the property’s transformation after the jump.
