LowBrau owners to launch Block Butcher Bar

The epic beer list and festive, high-decibel environs have marked LowBrau as one of the hottest midtown hang-outs since opening six months ago. Now, the owners of LowBrau are expanding with Block Butcher Bar, which will be located adjacent to LowBrau at the MARRS Building on 20th and K streets.

If LowBrau is geared for folks who want to let off steam with craft beer and a cranked DJ system, Block Butcher Bar seeks to entice a clientele that wants to chill out with fine Scotch and bourbon, plus wine, charcuterie plates and other butchery. If all goes to plan, Block would produce sausage in-house.

"It's nice to have a festive environment, but we also wanted to do something sophisticated as well," said Clay Nutting, co-owner of Low Brau and Block. "I think we can pull that off. Parts of these concepts we wanted to include in LowBrau, but couldn't because of budget and what not. Since we've had success, we can expand the concepts."

Nutting expects construction on the 1,100 square foot space to begin in the next few weeks. Nutting eyes September as a possible opening.

"We have more details to come," said Nutting. "We have another surprise with that space that we think will be very special."


* Dining review: LowBrau great for beer; food needs some tweaks
