Bardo Owner Plans to Open Beer Garden in Shaw

Bardo beer (Photo via Facebook/Bardo Brewpub)(Updated at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday) The owner of Trinidad’s Bardo Brewpub is moving ahead with plans to bring a beer garden to Shaw.

Bardo’s Shaw outpost is slated to open on a vacant, 6,000-square-foot lot on 9th Street NW by spring 2017, owner Bill Stewart told Borderstan today. He couldn’t remember the exact address, however.

“It’s a good location,” Stewart said of Shaw. “There’s a lot of stuff going on there.”

The Shaw beer garden will be similar to Bardo’s first D.C. location at 1200-1216 Bladensburg Road NE, which has seating for hundreds of drinkers, Stewart said. But he didn’t have exact details on the new Bardo yet.

Stewart might face an uphill battle bringing a beer garden to 9th Street. The proprietors behind an outdoor tavern proposed for 1322 9th St. NW scuttled their plans for the bar late last year “due to lack of support from the neighborhood.”

The announcement of the Shaw location came as Stewart works to open a “BeerDisneyLand” near Nationals Park this year.

      It could be, but a recent beer garden proposed there (by other parties) was shot down before it even got off the ground.

        Because you like the rat infested vacant lot?

  • Popeye

    He can’t remember the address? Or describe the location? That’s a bit odd.

      He’s smart and doesn’t want to alert the a$$holes.
