baraki update—construction commences

it was mentioned first on the eckington listserv, but i thought people would like to see some photos—visible construction at baraki (the bar that will be opening at the southeast corner of 1st and T streets nw in bloomingdale) hopefully soon!




they're tearing up the concrete along both first and T where the outdoor seating will be (to replace it with another surface? bricks? i'm not sure—there was no one there to ask this evening).

it's exciting to finally see some progress! maybe we'll finally have a place where eckingtonians can come over and discuss the finer points of how cool a neighborhood bloomingdale is over a pint. :)

Sweet! Now if we could just get those properties next to TNT Laundromat and Jak & Co. leased out, this intersection will be on fire...

Have you heard when they're hoping to open?

i've heard that they were aiming to open in 3 months. given how permitting tends to go in the city, i'd be amazed if they were ready to go by thanksgiving...

i am SO happy that people are choosing our area for their local businesses... we're starving for services, and i imagine this place will do *very* well...

I walked by yesterday - it looks as though they're creating a level patio for outdoor seating, held up by a brick retaining wall. Looked nice.
