From a press release:

“Today, the owners of Dacha Beer Garden announced a major revision in plans for a second bar and restaurant venue to be located at the southwest corner of 14th and S streets in northwest D.C. The venue is planned for one of the few remaining undeveloped parcels along the bustling commercial corridor recognized as among the city’s most vibrant areas.

The updated building design was posted online today by Dacha proprietors Ilya Alter and Dmitri Chekaldin in their months-long effort seeking approval of a pending liquor license application. The D.C. Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Board will consider the proposal in the coming weeks. A prominent component of the new design is a significantly expanded enclosed interior space. Nearly two-thirds of the total occupancy is now enclosed in response to concerns about noise. (more…)

no dacha

Whoa thanks to John for sending:

“The Dacha backlash has already started. I counted 17 “No Dacha on S Street” signs during my walk down S Street, NW.”

Yesterday we learned about Dacha’s plans for the current parking lot at 14th and S Street, NW (1740 14th Street, NW):

“New Class C Tavern serving American fare. Sidewalk café with 150 seats and a Summer Garden with 450 seats. Total Occupancy Load of 600.”

Update from Greg Pulscher: “I found this yards sign combo far more entertaining.”

Ed. Note: Some days, it’s teacher parent conference day and your kid only has a half day of daycare. Some days you’re in charge of the kid for the half day they have off. Some days you go to the zoo on a beautiful day and have a super fun time. Some days the liquor license applications for one of the biggest most popular beer gardens in DC are released. So I’m a day late but the carousel ride alone was worth it!!

I believe the expression is – boom!!!

The liquor license application for Dacha Beer Garden at 1740 14th Street, NW (the parking lot at 14th and S across the street from the Garden District beer garden) says:

“New Class C Tavern serving American fare. Sidewalk café with 150 seats and a Summer Garden with 450 seats. Total Occupancy Load of 600.

“New Class C Tavern serving American fare with 350 indoor seats. Sidewalk Café with 250 seats and a Summer Garden with 550 seats. Total Occupancy Load is 900.

Dacha’s original Shaw location 7th and Q St, NW

39 Potomac Ave, SE in May 2016

Boom!!! Vol. 79 Thanks to all who emailed the big Dacha news from Washington Business Journal:

“The location has ample outdoor patio space, theoretically for Dacha to do its signature beer garden thing, but also lots of indoor space — approximately 4,000 square feet of it.

The restaurant will face the first base gate of Nationals Park, and be practically next door to another beer garden in the neighborhood, Bardo, which is occupying a vacant space on the river next door to Dock 79 until MRP moves forward with development on that site.”

And I thought the new food menu in Shaw was exciting! Via email, Dacha’s owners tell me:

“We did sign a lease and intend to open for business sometimes in 2018. We look forward to bringing unique and authentic experiences that excite customers and reflect the incredible diversity of our proud and beautiful city.”

Dacha will also join The Salt Line and All-Purpose Pizzeria in Dock 79.  Boom, Boom, Boom!!!

Update from Dacha:

“We are required to apply for change of hours for the license, but that does not mean the hours for the outside component of our operations will change.

The indoor component, which had no hours of operations previously, gets customary hours that we agreed upon in the last neighborhood agreement. The outdoor component – sidewalk cafe – will have exactly the same hours as it has now. This will be stipulated in the license when it is issued. It would be impractical (if not impossible) for us to apply for change of hours for the outdoor component because that would violate our agreement with the neighborhood.”

From a liquor license application change for Dacha Beer Garden:

“Applicant requests a Change of Hours of operation and alcoholic beverage sales and consumption.

A reader reports:

“Thip Kao is coming into the space below Taylor & York salon (on 2nd floor) next to Dacha. Huge build out happening. Exciting if true. Love that place!”

Back in July we learned that DC’s first Lao Noodle House, Khao Poon, coming from owner/chef of DC’s First Laotian Restaurant, Thip Khao:

“Chef Deth & Chef Seng are combining forces to launch Khao Poon, DC’s first Lao Noodle House. They’re going to kick off the effort with some pop-up events at different locations as they lead up to securing the new restaurant’s permanent location. Khao Poon will offer a unique culinary experience featuring noodle dishes inspired by traditional Lao cuisine as well as that of the surrounding countries.”

Updates when more is known/as construction progresses.
