The Alchemist and Elements DC coming to U Street

1334 U Street, NW

Big U Street bar news. Thanks to Tom for sending word about The Alchemist which appears either to be coming to the beloved former Codmother space or the space above it (stay tuned.) The liquor license placard here for The Alchemist says: “A new Retailer’s Class C Tavern with a seating capacity of 47 and Total Occupancy Load of 50. Licensee is requesting an Entertainment Endorsement.”

1355 U Street, NW

But that’s not all. The former Republic Gardens space (next to the old State of the Union, see awesome old photos here), is slated to become Elements DC. The liquor license placard for Elements DC says:

“A new Retailer’s Class C Tavern with a seating capacity of 97 and Total Occupancy Load of 482. Licensee is requesting an Entertainment Endorsement.”

Next door at 1357 U Street, Alice Bar is coming.

Stay tuned for updates on all fronts.
