“Legendary craft cocktail bar the Gibson has set the long-anticipated reopening date for Friday, August 13”

2009 14th Street, NW

From a press release:

“Legendary craft cocktail bar the Gibson has set the long-anticipated reopening date for Friday, August 13, 2021. The pre-Prohibition style speakeasy will return to its original location after an almost year-long closure due to COVID-19. Customers can expect a menu of favorite Gibson original cocktails from throughout the 12 year history, in addition to the usual offerings of pristinely-made classics.

The candlelit aesthetics and jazz-heavy curated playlist will welcome customers back to the newly-refurbished space, which includes two floors and an airy patio. Offering private rentals (including cocktail classes) for groups as small as 6 to as large as 120, it’s the perfect space to gather for a special occasion. As an added bonus, there will be many familiar friendly faces – much of the pre-pandemic staff has returned.

Owner Eric Hilton is delighted to bring back his favorite bar: “We were able to overcome the roadblocks that forced our closure last fall, and I couldn’t be happier to be back in our original space. I expect great things for the future of the Gibson.”

The Gibson will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 6:00 to close. Reservations recommended and available at”
