The Pitch, a Jamaican restaurant and jazz and lounge coming to Georgia and Shepherd, is almost here. A few months ago I first spotted it, located above a laundromat at 4015 Georgia Avenue NW -- there's a roofdeck, but that was about all I can see.
The other day, however, a friend spotted a new "now hiring" sign and talked to a neighbor, who said the place looks fantastic inside and is almost done. She snapped these photos too. There's been some work done since last time, with a new entrance and paint and trim.
It sounds like an interesting spot, and it's sort of in a gap -- there's some things on Upshur, and some things near the Georgia Avenue Metro, but nothing in the blocks between. The original permit said there would be 50 seats plus a total of 14 outside. Music will include jazz bands, DJs, and open mic. I'll definitely check it out once it's open. (The open sign is either for the laundromat or was just on.)
