Closed Nightclub to Become Child Care Center

Signs changing from Melody Tavern to Crystal City Children's CenterThe former Melody Tavern, near Potomac Yard, is becoming a child care center.

Located at 3650 S. Glebe Road, Melody Tavern was a bar/restaurant that hosted live music. It closed in October 2012 after 10 months in business.

The space is now being renovated and will become the new location of the Crystal City Children’s Center. The parent-run cooperative child care center opened in 1987 and is currently located at 1900 S. Eads Street.

The new location will allow Crystal City Children’s Center to expand from 64 to 108 children, according to Luellen Matthews, director of the center. Among other features of the new center will be a state-of-the-art secure entryway, she said. Workers could be seen yesterday taking down old Melody Tavern signs and replacing them with Children’s Center signs.

“We expect to re-locate by late October,” Matthews told ARLnow.com.
