I read Bob Shallit to keep up with what is happening with local business and real estate, espeically the openings and closings of restaurants. Bob has another item today on the momentum for creating a bar on the top two floors of the very stylish Elks Building on J Street.
That area could use some more positive energy, and the bar could be magnificent. Sounds like they are moving in the right direction by knocking down all of the interior walls and clearing the way for 360-degree views. I suppose some of that view will include the unused, ugly acreage that is the railyard. But that site could someday be a coveted view in its own right. I wonder who the players are for the Elks bar -- a couple of restaurant/bar people and a developer.
