Good news for cocktail fans or folks near Upshur Street: the Twisted Horn, the new cocktail spot from the people behind Hank's Oyster Bar, will be opening Friday, according to their website.
Owner Jamie Leeds formerly also ran CommonWealth at 14th and Irving, the tasty English gastropub. However, she closed that to focus on Hank's.
In addition to cocktails, they'll have snacks and bar food like crostini, charcuterie, Japanese rice balls, smoked salmon and other things. There will be 30 seats at the bar, 10 at tables, and another 40 at a future outdoor patio.
The small building is next door to Domku and used to be a little church.
