A new lounge is taking shape on U Street.
Signage for a new business called Amsterdam Lounge was recently installed on and above the windows of the former Indulj space at 1208 U Street NW.
Though little information could be gleaned from the storefront — and the business does not appear to have applied for a liquor license — a Craigslist hiring ad from last month appears to reveal some details. According to the ad, the lounge seeks to hire someone to manage a restaurant and bar that will serve food, drinks and cocktails. Another job posting on Indeed.com indicates the new eatery may also serve coffee and espresso.
The forthcoming Amsterdam Lounge was contacted via e-mail this morning but has not yet responded.
14th & You (one of my favorite blogs for in-depth postings) has a post about The Gibson, a lounge at 2009 14th Street NW… with a link to the Washington Post review. I really shouldn’t post this because it sounds as if The Gibson is not crowded and an easy place to walk in and enjoy yourself. Once it gets popular, you can count me out.
