Atlas District mainstay the Liberty Tree is scheduled to pour its last drink by Halloween.
The neighborhood restaurant widely known for its Brussels sprouts has been sold, according to a message blasted out on social media by the owners.
Here’s the explanatory tweet from management:

In a subsequent exchange online, management floated the possibility of reviving some of the most popular menu items at Hamilton’s Bar & Grill, a sports bar operating in the shadow of the Department of Labor. Details on that potential transfer remain scarce, including whether Liberty Tree’s well-known burger will live on. The cozy New England-style eatery also drew crowds for its half-priced pizza specials.
Liberty Tree was one of the first bars to plant a flag in the area, arriving on H Street NE in March 2010. The pioneer is not the only restaurant from its era to undergo changes as of late; Kitty’s Saloon just shuttered, and the owner of the Queen Vic recently took the reins at Granville Moore’s.
