Starting tonight, D.C. drinkers can fully embrace new Logan Circle bar Crown & Crow’s Victorian-era theme by toasting to a painting of Louis XVI with a $20 glass of French bubbly.

The spacious dual-themed drinking den (1317 14th Street NW) scheduled to debut at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 3, comes from partners Brian Harrison, who ran Adams Morgan’s now-defunct the Reef, and Ben Sislen, who owns neighboring Kingfisher. The new arrival includes the 1,100-square-foot Crow bar, and the much-larger 2,700-square-foot Crown room. Find the hidden gem next to weeks-old Indian restaurant Pappe.

Patrons can expect to find 11 wines by the glass, starting at $9 a pour. Any of the featured offerings can also be ordered by the bottle. The cocktail list is still being finalized as the bar waits on its full inventory; the goal is to stock 100 bottles of whiskey.

While $20 sparklers are the biggest splurge on the wine front, Crown & Crow doesn’t want to pigeonhole itself to a certain budget or genre.

“We are catering to a broad demographic here. We are trying to have something for everyone and every age group,” Harrison tells Eater.

Fans of drinking in the 1990s, for instance, are in luck: The bars will serve fraternity house standbys Goldschlager, cinnamon schnapps famous for its gold flakes, and peppermint-y liqueur Rumple Minze. Meanwhile, it’s all-draft beer selection is all over the map — ranging from $5 Bud Lights to $8 Superfuzz Blood Orange Pale Ale from Seattle, Washington to $10 Duchesee ale from Belgium (perfect timing for supporters of the World Cup finalist).

In related news, Tuesday is shaping up to be a huge drinking night across the city. Because of the federal holiday on Wednesday, July 4, tons of D.C. bars got the OK to stay open until 4 a.m.

Status: Scheduled to open at 6 p.m. on July 3. 1317 14th Street NW; website.
