Idle Hands Opens Tomorrow in the Former Church & State Space
Idle Hands opens tomorrow on the second floor of 1236 H Street NE. The new bar is the work of Erik Holzherr, who was responsible for Church & State (which previously occupied the space), and is also behind downstairs neighbor Atlas Arcade, as well as Capitol Hill bar Wisdom. Here's the description from the website:
Idle Hands, DCs freshest interactive bar for drinkers with a gaming problem. Located above Atlas Arcade, IH is like the older brother that always shows up in that sweet, tricked-out Camaro trying to impress that rocker girl with the big hair. Too cool for most arcades, he prefers games of real skill. Our unique neon-church décor is like none other in DC and is the perfect 90s cocoon while you imbibe in our selection of high-end craft beers, wine and unique cutting-edge original cocktails -- nothing is copied here.
Idle Hands keeps the edge sharp on H street with games like giant connect 4, drunken twister with strangers, and confessions with twisted "priests". Feeling like a Boss? Reserve a spot for four on our V.I.P. “Casting Couch”. The game has begun…
Stop by Idle Hands starting at 6pm tomorrow to check the place out. Enjoy free games from 6–7:30pm. A flyer posted to their Facebook page advertises a complimentary grand opening shot for all guests. The new bar is also on Twitter.
