New bar to Highland Park building?

The Wash Biz Journal is reporting on talks about a new bar for the Highland Park building (where CommonWealth, Five Guys, etc). They say it's tentative, but it'll be a "Thirsty Bernie’s meets Carpool meets Whitlow’s" concept. Carpool is a decent bar, I don't know Thirsty Bernie's, and Whitlow's is, from what I remember, kind of a meat market place.

Thirsty Bernie's is apparently a chain of upscale sports bars, which might be good -- there really isn't a good bar to watch sports in the neighborhood. They have a $17 bratwurst though, which seems kind of ludicrous. The beer seems to be cheaper than CommonWealth.

What do you think? More bars = good, or are there too many coming in?

Thirsty Bernie's tap list couldn't be worse. Two American Craft beers? Are you kidding me? This place would die in CH.
