Maddy’s Taproom, recently anointed one of the best brunch locations in Borderstan, has a surprise in store for old and new patrons. Likely beginning this week, Maddy’s will officially be opening up the first phase of a new outdoor seating area. On the L Street side of this corner bar, there will be brand new tables and chairs to accommodate 50 customers.
After a month or two, there are plans to set out seating for another 45 customers on the 13th Street side of the establishment. With these two areas in place, Maddy’s will double the seating capacity and get you out into the sunlight while enjoying some of the 40 beers on tap and the “Texican” food it has become known for.
What To Expect Outside
The new outdoor areas will be operating from 11 am until midnight, seven days a week. You’ll still be able to order food off the same menu, enjoy the same brunch and get the same happy hour prices that you already do inside. Maybe most importantly though, the new outdoor areas will be dog friendly, complete with water bowls for your thirsty canine friends.
To keep things even more interesting, Maddy’s will be featuring special events in the new outdoor areas, like scotch and cigar nights. There is no set date yet for when these events will begin, but expect to hear about the first one sometime in the near future.
Maddy’s In Borderstan
Maddy’s Taproom, located at 1100 13th Street NW, opened this past October as an offshoot of Maddy’s Bar and Grill in Dupont Circle. Since then, it has become one of the most popular places to head to for a beer at the southern end of Borderstan. Staked out amongst Au Bon Pain, Dominos Pizza and Quiznos, Maddy’s is one of only a handful of places in this corporate area conducive to good post-work happy hours as well as settling in and getting to know the friendly and helpful bartenders.
