Sudhouse (1340 U St. NW, Facebook, Twitter, website), a new “beer hall and social club,” announced
today that it will open Friday, May 22nd that it will open Sunday, May 31st (with all day happy hour) in the space previously occupied by Bistro La Bonne (which closed in mid-April) near the intersection of 14th and U Streets. The bar will feature domestic and craft beers, billiards, and Big Buck Hunter along with classic American fare and hopes to be a “mom-and-pop style bar and grill.”
The three-floor spot features 2 bars in a 2,000-square-feet space. Co-owners/managers Simo and Ally Farouidi appear to have connections in the past with other current/former spots like Soussi in Adams Morgan, Dunya in Shaw, and the dearly departed Tabaq on U Street. PoPville first reported that Sudhouse was replacing Bistro La Bonne last week.
