The Gibson Expands, Again

Gotta love this news. Reaching again into the file of Things We’ve Long Planned, The Gibson will be opening their second floor for guests this Saturday. Fritz Hahn of Going Out Gurus Blog reports:

Open Tuesday through Saturday, the upstairs features a marble bar with about as many barstools as downstairs and a row of two-top tables lining a window-filled wall. There are two smaller rooms that double as lounges, with tables and couches for around a dozen people in each. Lit by sconces and overhead lights, the overall vibe is that of a retro hideaway; it’s like downstairs but not as dim, thanks to walls painted in lighter colors.

Additionally, the smaller rooms will be available for private parties.

This expansion will make it easier for The Gibson to maintain the larger crowds they built over the summer with the outdoor patio. It should shorten wait time for guests and will hopefully provide an even larger ability to accommodate the growing interest in craft cocktails in Washington DC. I can’t wait to check it out.
