POPville: Big Brookland News – Owner of Meridian Pint and Smoke and Barrel Opening New Location in new Brookland Works Building
September 12, 2013
Lots of good news continuing for Brookland this week. First Barnes and Noble confirmed leasing 14,000 square feet of the Cornerstone building with Catholic University on Monroe Street between Michigan Avenue and 7 Street, NE. And last week we learned Analog, “handmade and vintage shop” opened in the Arts Walk. Now comes more good news for the Arts Walk.
At the corner of 8th and Monroe St, NE – Meridian Pint and Smoke and Barrel owner John Andrade, has signed a lease for 4,200 square feet in the Brookland Works building, right outside the metro. They hope to open late spring/early Summer of 2014. While this, still to be named, restaurant will have a serious craft beer program – it will also feature a broader beverage program to include cocktails and wine. The 4,200 square foot space will have room for 120 inside and 48 on the outdoor patio. Lots more updates as construction progress and more details are known.
