The Black Squirrel Lounge is opening tonight at 9PM. The new space has a bit of a funkier flare from the dow stairs. Seating involves chill ottomans as well as the bar. Small low-to-the-ground tables will serve as a place to rest your beers. The new bar features a glass surface lit up from underneath and funky globe lights hang over top. They’ve also got more exposed brick with some inset candles to set the mood and a projector playing movies on one wall.
The new space features an expanded beer cocktail list with a number of new never-before-seen combos. They’ve also got 6 taps including Flying Dog 2007 Barleywine, Gouden Carolus Tripel & Noel, Lucifer. Beyond taps there will also be some winter seasonals in bottles. Flying Dog Ragin’ Bitch Belgian IPA is also on draft, but I think that will be downstairs.
The Black Squirrel is located in Adams Morgan right by the Falafal Shop. You can read our original review of the bar from way back when here. 2427 18th Street NW
