Summer Preview: 6 Bars to Look Forward to in Washington, D.C.

Summer Preview: 6 Bars to Look Forward to in Washington, D.C.

It’s opening season in the District and a slate of new restaurants with notable beverage programs are set to debut in the coming months. This time around, it’s a series of veteran restaurateurs — the teams behind Churchkey, Lincoln and Graffiato, to name a few — that have their sights set on the next venture. Check out where you'll be sipping in the months ahead.

Bluejacket: It’s been a long wait, but the brewery from Neighborhood Restaurant Group (of ChurchKey fame) is slated to finally begin production in August, when the restaurant — directed by NRG vet chef Kyle Bailey — will also open (300 Tingey St. NW).

Teddy and the Bully Bar: We’re still waiting for this eatery themed after our 16th president, but daily activity at the 19th Street site makes it look verrry close. As we wrote in January, If you’ve ever had the Farragut Fizz or Mason Dixon Manhattan at Lincoln, then you know there’s good reason to feel aflutter about the impending open of its sister establishment (1200 19th St. NW; 202-246-1653).

Bar di Bari: Aaron Gordon may be experiencing some setbacks with Zeke’s DC Donutz, which has temporarily closed to deal with doughnut-fume complaints, but Bar di Bari is a bright spot on the prominent 14th and R horizon. It will be an Italian-inspired cafe with a focus on wine and coffee.

Doi Moi: Restaurateur team Mark Kuller and Haidar Karoum have already proved their love of good wine and cocktails at Proof and Estadio, and this summer they’ll open a new space (this one Southeast Asian) with a cocktail focus. The restaurant’s bar — reportedly called 2 Birds 1 Stone — will feature libations from the respected Adam Bernbach.

Ted’s Bulletin: Recent online photos suggest that the forthcoming second location of Ted’s Bulletin — this one in Logan Circle — has potential for rooftop seating. Roof or no, we’re seriously stoked for Ted’s adult milkshakes and craft cocktails to join the neighborhood (1818 14th St. NW).

Kapnos: Mike Isabella’s third solo venture is set to open early this summer and will be serving Greek fare (and Italian sandwiches next door at G). His first two eateries paved the way for unsusual offerings on tap in the District (prosecco at Graffiato, margs at Bandolero) so we can’t wait to see what he’s got up his sleeve this time (2201 14th St. NW).
