With its already well-established and great businesses like Nellie's, 1905 and Etete, new businesses in the pipeline like Dickson Wine and Basiliko Gallery, and new developments like the Jazz at Florida Avenue, the Ninth and U area's revival has undeniable momentum. The Prince of Petworth reports on a major coup for the area: the long-vacant building on the northwest corner of the intersection of Ninth and U Streets -- 901 U Street, Northwest -- will finally see new life again.
The Prince provides the full text of a liquor licence application for a new business to occupy the notable corner building. To be called "The Brixton," it will be a "New tavern with DJ and live combo bands." The Brixton will include a "summer garden," which I posit would be located on the roof of the building. The ABRA hearing on the application is set for November.
I found no pending building permit application nor any additional information through Internet searches.
NOTE -- Sorry for my recent silence -- I've been on vacation at a gloriously Internet-free beach for the past two weeks.
