Hard Times for Capitol Hill Bars
It’s been a brutal few months for bar crawlers around Capitol Hill.
First, the diviest of dives, the Li’l Pub, closed its doors, ceding the battle to the CVS next door .
Then the news broke that the Pour House, that font of kitschy sports bar badness, is closing its doors at the end of April .
Then over the weekend, the Wall Street Journal reported that the owners of several Capitol Hill watering holes, Barracks Row Entertainment, was filing for bankruptcy . Depending on how things turn out, this could affect the Hawk ‘n’ Dove, Senart’s Oyster House, The Chesapeake Room, Park Tavern, Boxcar Tavern, Lola’s Barracks Bar & Grill, Molly Malone’s, Pacifico Cantina and the not-yet-open Willie’s Brew and ‘Que.
Yipes. If you’ve got a favorite bar out there, better support it while you can.
