DC Reynolds Coming to Georgia Avenue

The old Huron Pharmacy, soon to be DC Reynolds

I first heard about the possibility of a new food & drink option coming to the old Huron Pharmacy at 3628 Georgia Avenue, NW, at the January 12, 2011, ANC 1A meeting when Jeremy Gifford approached me to introduce himself and the project. Now, after months of hearing drips, drabs, and  scuttlebutt, its official. Gifford has been moving ahead with his project and intends to open a tavern with food and beverage service under the name of DC Reynolds.

While I expect to learn more during Gifford’s presentation on the project before the June 8 ANC 1A meeting, according to the ABRA Notice of Public Hearing that I received, the following details are already public.

The tavern plans to have entertainment inside the premises and a summer garden that will include low volume musical performances by two or three piece acoustic bands and DJ’s. The inside will have a seating capacity of 65. The summer garden will have an estimated seating for 120 patrons.

And what does DC Reynolds mean?, well New Columbia Heights got the scoop on that and posted Gifford’s explanation of the genesis of the concept.

All in all, it sounds like a good addition to the area. You can also get a sense on some of the work going on at 3628 (not to mention learn how to build stairs) by watching the video below. There are also more photos and information on their facebook page.
