Bar Closings

In a post at The Atlantic’s food blog, Derek Brown gives a requiem for Bar Pilar’s Tuesday Cocktail Sessions. Not surprisingly, Derek aptly captures what the DC cocktail scene has lost with Adam Bernbahc’s departure from BP.

Derek also writes about the closing of Timberlake’s, a quasi-Irish dive on Connecticut Avenue, that I hadn’t realized had closed. I used to go to Timberlake’s with some regularity when I first lived in DC. It was a common hangout for some of my coworkers and also hosted the District’s Drinking Liberally chapter. I was never that big of a fan of Timberlake’s – it was a pretty generic bar’s bar. Derek’s obituary of it, though, shows that for the folks who called it a regular haunt, it had all the character and charisma of any of my favorite spots.
