Jazz Club/Theater Coming to Neighborhood

2917 Georgia Avenue

According to the Washington Business Journal, the latest plans for 2917 Georgia Avenue NW  is to become a Jazz Club and Theater.

The following details are from the WBJ — Kerry Lewis, with his wife Charletta, leased the 4,400-square-foot property with one-year option to buy.  The have invested about $60,000 to build out the space and expect it will take an additional $40,000 to get the project completed.  Lewis has enlisted Pin Points to be the resident theater company, performing shows at noon and 6 p.m. The space would be rented to other organizations during the remaining time and host jazz musicians for late-night shows.

This is a huge change from the high-end liquor store that was originally proposed for the space on June 17th. That ABRA application met with stiff community and ANC opposition and was eventually withdrawn by owner Michael Ressom by the beginning of August.
