More than four months after a fire closed its doors, the Tune Inn will reopen this Friday.
The bar and restaurant will open at 8 a.m., its regular opening time before a fire damaged its kitchen on June 22, according to a release from Friends of the Tune Inn.
While owner Lisa Nardelli had been optimistic about the bar reopening in just a few weeks, the reconstruction lasted for months and cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.
An official grand reopening event is planned in the next few weeks.
The Tune Inn, which has been featured on the Food Network's "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" and has been named one of the 100 Best Bars in America by Esquire magazine, is a staple among Members of Congress, staffers and residents alike.
On the morning of the fire, Rep. John Mica (R-Fla.) asked for a moment of silence for the Tune Inn at the beginning of a House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee meeting.
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
