1932 9th Street, NW
PROJECTED OPENING DATE: September 2017
Opening in the basement of Sugar Shack’s forthcoming Shaw doughnut shop, owner Rob Krupicka (former Democratic member of the Virginia House of Delegates) will introduce an experimental bar with a menu featuring 30 to 40 different mini cocktails (“tapas-style”) where customers can mix and match in flights. Half-to three-quarter-portion drinks will be available in flights at Nocturne. Captain Gregory’s Executive Chef Brandon McDermott will prepare a small menu of gourmet snacks to match with the drinks, such as duck jerky and deviled eggs. A salmon belly rillette with sea beans, cucumber espuma, and olive oil “caviar” will be served in a jewelry box. There will also be doughnuts and foie gras marshmallows.
