Tree House Lounge Coming to Florida Ave
A new sign has gone up at the location of the long shuttered Capitol Hill Premium Cigar & Tobacco at 1006 Florida Ave. Tree House Lounge has a soft opening scheduled for Friday, April 12th (per the website). That soft opening will only include the upstairs bar, but they hope to have the downstairs up and running by this summer. Two bands are scheduled to play the soft opening ($10 cover). The first band is Nobody's Business (I'm going to describe their music as bluesy rock) at 8:30, followed by Skydivers at 11:30.
The main focus will be on live music. I saw blues, jazz, rock, and bluegrass among the bands listed. The website mentions plans to initiate a weekly open stage night on Wednesdays (starting tonight, according to the website) called Blues Workshop, and hosted by Johnny Bonneville from 9pm-12am.
