Coming soon: Biergarten Haus and Buddha Bar updates
Let's break up the Wednesday afternoon boredom with news about opening dates for two much-anticipated bars.
First, in the hopes of cutting off a stream of questions in tomorrow's Got Plans?, I can tell you that Biergarten Haus will not be open on H Street NE this weekend. The outdoor patio is "totally done," according to the owners, but they still need to do some work indoors and secure their all-important certificate of occupancy from the D.C. government. There's a good chance they'll be open next week (end of April/beginning of May) if all goes well, so keep your fingers crossed.
We've been waiting on the D.C. branch of the famed Parisian lounge Buddha Bar for what seems like ages. (Okay, since 2008.) A number of "opening dates" have come and gone, while the space at 555 Massachusetts Ave. still sits empty. But management has been soliciting DJs on Craigslist, and it seems they'll finally take down the "Coming Soon" posters on May 8. I'll have more news on the opening events shortly.
