Following a multi-month effort to gage popular desires for a business at 1351 H Street, Popularise recently announced that the space will go to a joint venture between Toki Underground's Erik Bruner-Yang and the creators of local men's fashion line DURKL.

Here's how they described the project:
The concept will be based around an inviting market place environment spearheaded by collaboration between the creators of DURKL and Toki Underground; combining both fashion and food, while at the same time giving local vendors an opportunity to market and sell their products.
We believe that H Street is ready for something new and different. A space that will operate both day and night, during the week and on weekends, providing an offering as diverse as the neighborhood itself. We think of it like a new age Eastern Market. We are excited about the potential possibilities for this project, and look forward to further developing the concept with the input and support of our future customers.
Eater has more details on the business, which will combine the idea of a local food market with fashion, Asian cuisine, and craft cocktails. How's that for something different?
