Whoa! Colony Club owners will open a pizza restaurant next door on Georgia Avenue

This is pretty awesome news: the owners behind Colony Club, the coffee shop and bar at 3118 Georgia, will be opening a pizza restaurant next door. The City Paper has more details, it will be named after their general contractor, Sonny.

The building is a former doctor's office called MARC, I think used for methadone or other drug treatment. It's about twice as wide as Colony Club, and the City Paper says there's room for almost 200 seats. There will also be a big backyard area.

They'll have house-baked breads, sandwiches, salads and what co-owner Max Zuckerman described as "old-school New York-style sides like garlic knots and pepperoni rolls" to the CP. They'll also have beer, wine and cocktails that go well with pizza.

There's also an open space the next building up, I hope that gets turned into something soon too.

UPDATE: MARC was a former's doctor's office. My mistake.


  1. For lack of spreading news that isn't true, MARC clinic was actually a doctor's office, not just a "drug treatment" center. I've been in there multiple times for quick, easy, cheap tests.

  2. Wow, that's super irresponsible reporting. I've been there myself for non-drug or methadone reasons. In fact, upon visiting their website I see no mention of such things at all - Great job perpetuating negative views and stereotypes of a neighborhood, being saved by the great gentrifiers!

  3. I said "I think" that's what it was, I've never seen anything about it. I stand corrected.

  4. Also Josh, I've lived in the city since 1998 and Columbia Heights since 2007. This entire blog is about the good things in this neighborhood. That's literally the point of me writing this -- news and information and everything about why this place is great. So get over yourself.
