Salty Dog Tavern is set to open in Dupont in the space previously occupied by Black Fox Lounge at 1723 Connecticut Ave. NW, Barred in DC has learned. This spot, in the northern part of Dupont between R & Streets, will replace the gay-0wned lounge that shuttered in December of last year. ABRA approved the liquor license transfer on March 18th.
[3/25 Update: I’ve learned that this spot will likely have a restaurant/lounge vibe and come from the folks who currently operate Alley Cat Restaurant & Lounge in suburban Alexandria across from the Landmark Mall off I-395. They hope to open the first week in April.]
