Hockey fans in Ballston are going to need to find a back-up haunt for watching games and drinking beer the next few weeks. Popular Arlington sports bar The Front Page is temporarily closing its doors for renovations.
Events and Promotions Manager Emily Garber didn't have a ton of details available on how the bar is freshening up. But she said Front Page will be closed starting Monday, Feb. 4. It's likely work will take about two or three weeks to complete, she said, but the bar did not have a firm reopening date available.
Front Page draws a steady weekend crowd of Arlingtonians, and is also sometimes a site for spotting Washington Capitals players, given their practice facility across the street. So Front Page regulars, drink up this weekend before heading elsewhere.
