As revealed on the Titan of Trinidad, Bardo is a project from the former owner of Bardo Rodeo and Dr. Dremo's. The Going Out Gurus explain what this means. Additional coverage (some background) from ARL now,

As some readers have pointed out, it is a bit of a hike from H Street (particularly if you are unfamiliar with the strip). For the casual traveler, there are buses that run up that way. This also seems to me like it could become more of a destination bar. A place were you might legitimately plan to spend the evening, rather than planning to barhop. Regardless, this is terrific news for Bladensburg Road, and Trinidad more generally (despite the anticipated rantings of Kathy Henderson, it should also benefit Carver Terrace).
