Very mysterious. Apparently, the team behind Acqua Al 2 on Capitol Hill is opening a speakeasy right above the eatery at 212 7th St SE. Eater received an invitation for an opening party for the new concept this weekend, and has reached out to the co-owner for any additional information on the project.
That little slice of Capitol Hill has seen plenty of activity lately, with Suna Restaurant also opening above the Italian eatery last month. The speakeasy is called Harold Black, but it doesn't seem to have a Facebook page or Twitter account yet (a snapshot on a Tumblr account called Interior Decline seems to be the bar's only Internet presence). Eater will update when more details are available.
