 Page Through from Before to After

Not sure what I can write beyond this:
The Brig is located on the northwest corner of 8th and L Streets, SE (1007 8th for your GPS). See my project page for photos and links to posts on the long and winding road to this milestone. And see you all there for a JDLand Happy Hour at some point in the relative near future.
UPDATE, 6/17: Yup.

Great News-will be stopping by Friday!



JD says: (6/16/16 9:09 AM)
Yeah, I still give it a 10% chance of not happening, but that level of specificity was more than I could ignore.

The location and layout of the space leaves a lot to be desired.

"The location and layout of the space leaves a lot to be desired."

If successful, I imagine they will follow the same pattern as Bier Garten on H and Dacha in Shaw. Both started out rather simple and progressively became nicer.

As for the location, it's close to Barracks Row (might technically be part of it?) and I don't believe their is residential near it, so they should be able to stay open until a decent time.


Shogungts says: (6/16/16 2:08 PM)
*there is



JD says: (6/16/16 2:09 PM)
I'm guessing the Marines who live a block away in two different directions will find the location enticing and the layout immaterial.

The layout of the Brig is fine. It is a beer garden. There is plenty of seating and a gravel driveway that could be perfect for a food truck.

Went last night. Good crowd even before 5pm, significantly older average age and many more families than would typically be seen in Navy Yard - much more of a Barracks Row crowd.

Cheap can beer $5
Expensive can beer $6-7
Most drafts $8
1 Liter drafts - $15

Security seemed good. Easy to get drinks. No music. One TV behind the bar for watching sports. I overhead one of the staff say they had gas plumbed throughout the patio for installing heaters when the weather gets cold.

Ziafat across the street provided some delicious Chicken Korma and Samosas as dinner. Las Plactias was PACKED and there was no one in Ziafat. Hidden gem! The food truck @ Brig also looked great.

Nice addition to the neighborhood!


JD says: (6/18/16 1:54 PM)
I stopped by around 8:30. Place was packed, but yet it was a very calm crowd.



JD says: (6/18/16 1:54 PM)
And I'm glad they installed the strings of lights and the central street lamp.

What is that brick wall in the first photo? It would look nice with a mural....


JD says: (6/20/16 9:24 AM)
It's the building across the little alley.


B in DC says: (6/20/16 8:08 PM)
Went to The Brig on Sunday and really enjoyed it. With trees and umbrellas, it was cool even in heat of the day. Place was dog friendly and beer selection was good. They said they're getting a grill and will have regular food trucks. Looking forward to going back.
