Church Hall, the 7,000-square-foot bar located underneath the Georgetown Park mall, is adding seats outside of its basement to attract more beer drinkers as part of a recently announced pop-up. Beginning Wednesday, August 19, a new outdoor extension in a brick courtyard brick courtyard nearby (3223 Grace Street NW) will host biergarten seating overlooking the C&O Canal.
A short list of new drinking snacks includes a big bratwurst in natural casing and Hebrew National hot dogs with a side of chips. There’s a watermelon and feta salad with lemon dressing and a watermelon gazpacho that can be spiked with Republic Restorative’s Civic vodka.
Civic also helps make an Orange Crush, and Cotton & Reed rums make their way into a daiquiri and punch. The beer selection includes lots of canned options brewed in D.C., Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia. Frozen margaritas will also be available outside.
Hours are Wednesday through Friday from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. Reservations can be made online for parties up to six.
The slightly hidden, subterranean restaurant and bar (1070 Wisconsin Avenue NW), comes from the group at Tin Shop (Franklin Hall, Tall Boy). Known for its variety of draft lines, crispy wings, and spicy bean burger, Church Hall reopened at the end of July with limited seating, takeout, and delivery.
