Capitol Bop, a local jazz blog, repeats a rumor that we can expect recently relocated jazz club HR-57 to open its doors March 16th. That's great news for jazz fans all along the Corridor. But that's not all the good news. CB also reports that owner Tony Puesan plans to open a blues bar somewhere on H Street. That fits in well with the rumor I heard a while back about Puesan was shopping spaces, including a double size space (i.e. two buildings) a few blocks further east. Awesome. HR-57, and a blues joint along the same lines, would be a major draw to H Street much in the way that Red Palace and the Rock and Roll Hotel bring in crowds from all over the metropolitan area.
Want more good news? Khan's Mongolian Bar-B-Q (their website is up, but it's just a splash page) and the Queen Vic (warning, link plays music) reportedly aim to open March 21st. Hot damn, it's gonna be a hell of a spring. March 21st aim for date via @HStreetDC.
