1317 14th Street NW; 202.436.4595
This brand-new bar with a historic vibe comes from partners Brian Harrison, who ran Adams Morgan’s now-defunct the Reef, and Ben Sislen, who owns Kingfisher. This bar has an unusual feature: it's actually in two separate buildings. Bar goers are first welcomed by the 1,100-square-foot Crow bar and a much-larger 2,700-square-foot room, dubbed Crown, is around the corner. Crown & Crow will offer 14 beers and specialty cocktails (around $10). The opening cocktail list is still being perfected. While there's no food service, the owners encourage patrons to order from one of the many nearby (and delicious) restaurants on 14th Street. Once they're up and running successfully, Crown and Crow will be open from 4 p.m. until last call with a happy hour as well.
