You gotta go big when you have “life-size connect four”.
8th and T Street, NW
Update from the owner of All Souls:
“All Souls will be opening a new concept in The Apollo building on H Street, NE. The space will be located through the alley next to WeWork on 7th Street and will be called The Little Grand. While this is a new concept, we will not venture too far from what we do at All Souls, using the highest quality ingredients, maintaining affordable prices and trying to give the best service possible. The other similarity is The Little Grand will be a small, simple bar serving craft beer, cocktails, and wine but with the added bonus of pizza. We are very excited to be part of H Street and the Apollo community.” (more…)

And speaking of the World Cup – get ready for 2026 too!! From MLS:
“The 2026 World Cup is coming to North America! The United Bid, which was jointly submitted by the federations of Canada, Mexico, and the United States, emerged as the winning bid after a public vote held among FIFA’s member nations on the eve of the 2018 World Cup.

Update: It’s definitely gonna be a sports bar. Word on the street is they’ll be open for the World Cup.
“I went by Habana Village today and noticed there is a new sports bar there (something we badly need, of course). When did that happen?”

Habana Village’s Facebook wrote back in February:
THE ESTABLISHMENT STILL UNDER RENOVATIONS AND WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL THE END OF JUNE, 2018.
WE APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT AND WE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENT.
Their website also still says: “DUE TO REMODELING THE ESTABLISHMENT WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL JUNE, 2018.”
Maybe they’ll temporarily be a sports bar for the World Cup and then return to regular Habana Village? Anyone hear what’s up?
For those not familiar – from their about us:
“Habana Village is a Cuban oasis located in the heart of Adams Morgan, one of the most Ethnically diverse neighborhood in the District of Columbia.
We offer an opportunity for patrons to experience the cuisine, art, music and dance of the rich culture that is Cuba.
“Our Mission is for all our guest have an unforgettable experience”
The best place in town for authentic meals, popular drinks, and amazing dance!
We hope to see you on the dance floor!”
This is truly another Adams Morgan ‘End of an Era’.

This is the former Brass Monkey, Spaghetti Garden, Roxanne Restaurant, and Peyote Karaoke spaces that closed back in early May.
