Glitzy Stanton & Greene Occupies Gator Swampland

In Capitol Hill, News, Openings, Wine by RUNINdc

We certainly miss the Pour House, but probably not as much as the DC Gators. After moving out shortly after the NCAA Division 1 Championship, they settled down at the old GWU hang-out McFadden’s. McFadden’s became the new local swamp until a bar fight and stabbing led to its closure right before New Year’s.

Gator fans and Capitol Hill denizens rejoice — a more classic American cocktail bar has taken over and will be opening its doors this spring.

The glitzy 3-story Stanton & Greene on 319 Pennsylvania Avenue with its artisan spirits and historical decor will be a welcome addition to Capitol Hill’s boozy and promising nightlife scene.

And best of all, the owners, longtime fixtures of Capitol Hill run upscale Sonoma Wine Bar just a block away.  Would say Welcome to the Neighborhood, but hey, you’re already here.
