Bar and restaurant maybe in the works at 3124 Georgia




The other day I walked past 3124 Georgia Ave NW, just south of Kenyon, and it looks like a bar/resturant is going in. This place was originally planned to be Hush Restaurant and Lounge, but their liquor license was denied when the ANC thought it sounded more like a club.

There's a new permit on the window extending an earlier permit to enlarge the windows and doors for a restaurant/bar on the first floor with an office upstairs. The building is owned by the same LLC as applied for Hush's permit, so it may be the same thing.

The building is two doors down from Colony Club and the space itself is pretty big and open (though without a back door) and there looks to be a bar built.

I talked with someone who works nearby and they said the building has been under construction for some time, so maybe that work was done a while ago, but the new permit may mean progress has restarted.

This building, if you recall is a two-story building that previously had a banner on it asking people to rent it for a restaurant or bar. (See below from Google.)

Too bad the ANC strongly supported the liquor license for Golden Paradise at 14th & Randolph. A gunfight broke out among gangs there last weekend. Stabbings, drug dealing in the bathrooms, prostitutes, drinking and driving, outdoor drinking... Pretty routine here. Neighbors asked the anc to deny, but the local anc rep ignored everyone. Bet he feels like an idiot now!
