Metro Weekly has the scoop on the transformation coming to 1318 9th Street, current location of be bar. As previously reported, the current incarnation of be bar closes this Saturday night (May 9). The space will undergo a quick transformation and re-open under two new names on Friday, May 15.
The first floor will be known as EFN Lounge (pronounced as it's read, not as it's spelled). It will be edgier than be bar and will call to mind a rugby pub with a ''nice design.''
The previously under-utilized second floor (formerly home to be bar's VIP area and offices) will house Motley Bar. It will feature a pool table and beer busts, among other basic bar offerings.
1318 9th Street, NW
Thanks for the tip, Mr. Q!
