From a press release:
“The owners and operators of Sauf Haus DC are proud to announce the re-opening of Public Bar Live. The sports and live music lounge concept has soft opened Dupont Circle, and will throw a grand re-opening party late summer 2019. Public Bar Live is slated to serve as a happy hour spot, with live music acts on an elevated stage, 40 televisions for sports and a lounge for bottle service.
The 8,000 square-foot indoor-outdoor concept is now owned and operated by the team behind Sauf Haus DC, the authentic German biergarten next door. Public Bar Live’s menu features happy hour favorites including tacos, wings and seasoned fries paired with crafted cocktails.
“We are committed to a straightforward, no fuss experience across our concepts, but Public Bar Live has been completely re-designed on the interior to add a layer of luxury,” says John Issa, Director of Operations for Public Bar Live.
Public Bar Live features a green room, four bars across three levels and a newly-designed, elevated stage that rests on top of the main bar. Public Bar Live is expected to begin booking regional and national level acts with a mix of ticketed and public shows.
Public Bar Live’s second floor offers bottle service for premium liquor with reserved tables. The rooftop garden on the third floor will feature DJs for weekend-long day parties and is slated to open late summer 2019.“
