Say so long to Bourbon (2348 Wisconsin Ave.). After October 17, the bar will close for an estimated 10 months of construction, according to the Washington Post.

Owner Bill Thomas “has wanted to renovate what he calls a ‘very disjointed’ building for years, but didn’t want to begin any major projects until he was able to purchase the real estate, which happened just over a year ago,” the Post reports.
