Parking Lot at 1st and L Streets That Will Be Transformed into Wunder Garten

In the coming weeks, the current outdoor daily parking lot at the corner of 1st and L Street will be transformed into the new location of Wunder Garten.  The location is the southwest corner of the parking lot, across the street from where the NoMa summer movie series is held at the future site of Storey Park.  The NoMa biergarten opened last summer in the vacant lot next to Flats 130 and the NoMa Metro station (150 M Street, NE) but could not stay in that location as it is slated to become an office building in the near future.  The popular biergarten spent the fall and winter looking to secure a new and longer term location in the neighborhood.  They were successful last week when they signed a lease for the 13,000 square foot location at 1st and L Street that has a multi-year option attached to it.

Wunder Garten will hopefully open at the end of June or the beginning part of July.  As Wunder Garten plans on being in this location for multiple years, the owners will be able to invest even more in the space.  The owners will have to obtain a new liquor license as their location has moved.  Prior to opening, they will be adding plants and a large tent (that will hopefully allow them to stay open later into the fall) to the lot.  The set up will be similar to last year: several German and local beers on draft, rotating food trucks, lots of seating room, and nice portable bathrooms.  REI–opening soon in NoMa–held various events at Wunder Garten last year and is looking to have an even bigger presence this year.  While Wunder Garten was ultimately unable to allow dogs last year, they will explore the possibility in the new space.
