Future Home of Sixth and H Bar and Grill

We had previously reported that Sixth and H Bar and Grill would be coming to the corner of 6th and H Streets (523 H Street, NE), but details were sparse.  Two of the owners of the restaurant presented at the ANC 6C Alcoholic Beverage Licensing Committee meeting Monday night to provide some more details.  Sixth and H Bar and Grill is owned by three members of the Defour family who also own the building.  According to Leslie Defour, the family has owned the building for awhile and has been considering what to do with it to make it a positive addition to the neighborhood.  They settled on opening a sports bar that would be a “nice and happy place” for neighbors to hangout.  They plan on serving a mix of light snacks and bar food that will include sliders, salads, and a variety of appetizers like spinach artichoke dip.  On the drink side, there will be a mix of different beers, wines, and mixed drinks.  The inside of the building has several TVs for sports, and they will also have a (planned) twenty two person patio.  The restaurant will also have free WiFi for people who want to do work there.  Sixth and H Bar and Grill will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner, although they have not applied for a liquor license before noon, so it appears unlikely that they will serve alcohol for brunch service.

The Alcoholic Licensing Committee was appreciative that the owners came before the Committee and were amenable to working with the Committee to address any potential concerns.  The main concern was that the owners had applied for a liquor license that would enable them to operate the outdoor patio well past midnight.  The owners agreed to end outdoor service on the patio at 10 pm both during the week and on weekends.  Initially, there had been plans for a rooftop deck; however, the owners were unable to get building permits for that part of the renovation.

Sixth and H Bar and Grill hopes to open on December 15th, several months earlier than initially planned.
