1015 Bar and Lounge brings the busy neighborhood around the Walter E. Washington Convention Center a new option for Southern food with a side of hookah smoke.

1015, named after its address at 1015 1/2 Seventh Street NW, replaces failed sports bar MVP. An opening party over the weekend was held in conjunction with an event the Democratic National Committee, with big names like DNC chairman Tom Perez and journalist Roland Martin in attendance.

1015 comes from Jude Collins, who attended Tulane University in New Orleans and now works in the energy and environmental space. Blackened salmon has a Cajun kick to go along with spicy colossal shrimp, wings, and lobster mac and cheese.

Along with 12 seats at the bar, there are 10 booths and tables for up to six. One dubbed the “ultra” table can fit a dozen guests. Hookah is permitted indoors.

Hours are Monday to Thursday from 4 p.m. to 1 a.m.; Friday and Saturday from 4 p.m. to 3 a.m.; and closed on Sundays.
