Bourbon (2348 Wisconsin Ave.) marks its 10th year in business with a party from 7 to 10 p.m. tonight, July 22, at its Glover Park location, The Washington Post reports.

“Bartenders will pour free whiskey and free craft beer, while the staff passes free hors d’oeuvres,” the Post writes. “Obviously, not every drink in the house will be free, and the food will be more like snacks than a full meal…. Make sure you ask about which whiskeys are complementary before asking for a glass of, say, Parker’s Heritage and getting sticker shock when the bill arrives.”

“From Monday, Jan. 14 through Monday, Jan. 21, the D.C. Council is allowing some restaurants and bars to stay open 24 hours a day and serve alcohol until 4 a.m.,” The Washington Post reports. “Being authorized to stay open late doesn’t guarantee that a bar will definitely be open around the clock for a full week…. It just means an establishment can stay open later if the owner chooses, or if the place is booked for a special event.”

On the list of 154 bars approved for extended hours were four in Glover Park:

Bourbon (2348 Wisconsin Avenue, NW),
Breadsoda (2233 Wisconsin Avenue, NW),
Good Guys (2311 Wisconsin Avenue, NW), and
Mason Inn (2408 Wisconsin Avenue, NW).

We’d heard rumors that part of 2352 Wisconsin Ave., the former home of Shade & Shutter Shack, would become a manicure shop, but now there’s proof. A building permit application filed last week for the vacant building—which is located next door to Bourbon (2348 Wisconsin Ave.)—is for “interior work for a nail salon,” a source at the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs tells us.

As previously reported, another part of the building is slated to be turned into a therapeutic massage business, if city approvals go through. Representatives of the business, Massage Escape Spa, will address Advisory Neighborhood Commission 3B at their June 14 meeting to request support for their plan.

A couple of weeks back, we reported a rumor that two upper floors of the vacant property at 2352 Wisconsin Ave., formerly home to Shade & Shutter Shack, had been rented by a massage business. Now, we have what looks like proof: a building permit application filed on Tuesday. Though the names of permit applicants are not publicly released, the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs does confirm that this particular applicant will need a special zoning exception because they want to use the space primarily for massages. Details as they develop.

We hear the ground floor of this building may have been rented to a nail salon. We earlier reported that next-door neighbor Bourbon (2348 Wisconsin Ave.) was seeking to expand to 2352 Wisconsin; now we’re hearing it’s only the patio they have their eye on. Bourbon owner Bill Thomas has not responded to our requests for comment.
