Thumbs up **Iron Horse Tap room: new DC Motorcycle Bar - January 14, 2010, 09:09 AM




New Place for 2 Wheeled Tuesdays this season in DC....???????

The only regret I have is the fact that they will not be serving Food. It will be strictly a Tavern. For those who like beer on Tap it will have 20 different beers.

I'm a lite...read (girly drinker) and in order for me to have 2 or more drinks I have to have food on my stomach. If im at a bar with no food then I won't drink.

Anyway this is pretty much in China Town near the end...near Austin Grill and Chop House. They said you can bring food in from those places...still a drab if you ask me.




Iron Horse Opens in Penn Quarter Thursday Night

13 January 2010 11:52 PM |


It was back in April 2009 that we first learned about Iron Horse Tavern coming to Penn Quarter. I’m happy to report that they’ll be opening up at 507 7th Street, NW Thursday evening. There was still some construction going on when I stopped by but when they finish up on Thurs. they’ll be open. After Thursday regular hours will start at 4pm. There will be 20 beers on draft and no bottles or cans. This is strictly a tavern and no food will be served though they do have an agreement where food can be brought in by customers or ordered from nearby Austin Grill or DC Chophouse.

It is a two level bar with the upstairs being more like an “upscale neighborhood hangout” according to GM Daniel Williams. The downstairs, with a capacity of 177, is filled with games and two connected bars. One will be open right away and will feature skeeball, shuffleboard, jukebox, and big buck hunter. The adjoining smaller bar is tentatively titled the “Story Bar” which will not open for another week or so and will feature photographs from a bicycle trip taken by City Bikes owner, Charlie McCormick.

Owner Geoff Dawson envisions that the space will include photographs and postcards from others who take trips around the world. Mr. Dawson is also the president of Bedrock Companies which includes Aroma, Atomic Billiards, Bedrock Billiards, Buffalo Billiards, CarPool, Continental, and Mackey’s.

You can call 202-347-7665 to confirm what time they open tomorrow.
While it wasn’t completely finished when I stopped by, this certainly looks like it will be a nice addition to the Chinatown/Penn Quarter neighborhood.

No food, just craft beers? Not even stupid little appetizers and bar food - in DC?!

Yeah, that's going to be a death sentence / failed business strategy.

Even almost every lounge in DC has the obligatory fried calamari, hummus, chicken wings appetizer.

Hell, just take the appetizers from the surrounding restaurants put them on your menu and charge an extra $1 - then call it in to them and have a runner do the backdoor to backdoor thing all night.

I would be interested in the issues of having something catered for TWT if we could guarantee a turnout. Maybe take $5 at the door. Perhaps talk to Nunya about getting the mag involved.
