As we first reported here a few weeks ago, Maddy’s Taproom is finally opening up their outdoor seating area today. The barriers delineating the dining area from the sidewalk were installed earlier this week, followed by brand new tables and chairs.

As previously noted, this outdoor area is located on the L Street side of the location at 13th and L Street. The tables and chairs being set out will be able to accommodate 50 customers. If all goes well, the outdoor seating may eventually expand onto 13th Street, opening up the ability to serve another 45 customers.

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

As previously reported, the new outdoor areas will be operating from 11 am until midnight, seven days a week. The menus will remain the same both for inside and outside seating and, very importantly, you’ll still be able to enjoy happy hour pricing while basking in the sun. And don’t forget that this new outdoor area is dog-friendly, so you don’t have to feel bad about leaving your dog at home when you’re heading out for a drink or a bite to eat.

It’s not likely that Maddy’s had your dad in mind when setting today as the opening day for the outdoor seating, but with Father’s Day right around the corner, this makes for a great outdoor brunch location.

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.

The great thing about four-day work weeks is that they go by so quickly. I felt like I needed a weekend to recover from last weekend’s three-day July 4th  festivities, but here we are again, on the brink of another weekend: time to rinse and repeat, everyone!

Here’s my round up of where to eat, drink, party and sneak in some culture in and around Borderstan this weekend:

Thursday, July 7

  • Venus in Fur is extended at The Studio Theater and Brightest Young Things has the hook up with special discounted tickets and a happy hour tonight.
