Nellie's Sports Bar will soon be another great dining and nightlife destination in our neighborhood. Originally slated to open in fall 2006 (or possibly even before that), a press release issued this month, available here, announces that Nellie's will indeed finally open in February. I confirmed in an email to one of the owners that a February opening is in store.
Nellie's will be a unique addition to this stretch of the U Street Corridor and to Shaw, combining "sports, good food, and fun in a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere." With beer galore, good bar food and some lighter fare, 15 televisions, a patio on the side of the building facing U Street, and a roof deck, this spot should be a lot of fun.
More details about the opening to follow.
