A quaint 25-seat Shaw bar has opened, complete with a crackling fireplace, refurbished wood, and a hand-me-down butcher’s knife all connected to its owner’s family. The bar at 600 T Street NW is technically named 600t, but owner Stephen Lawrence says the hope is to make it a word-of-mouth place. Its straightforward list of cocktails also carry vague names like Vodka, Gin, and Mezcal.The space oozes history: originally built in the late 1800s, Lawrence converted it into a two-bedroom apartment about a decade ago. The bar program is pretty straightforward, focusing on beer, wine, and 10 to 12 cocktails that will rotate monthly. Seasonal produce plucked from farmers markets will make its way into drinks.
