Someone has applied for building permits at the former P. Brennan’s space on Columbia Pike

A mysterious new restaurant may be coming to Columbia Pike, potentially filling the vacant space once occupied by P. Brennan’s.

A business that goes by the name “Nightbird Restaurant & Lounge” applied late last month for a building permit at 2910 Columbia Pike, county records show. That’s the former home of P. Brennan’s Irish Pub, which was open from 2010 to 2017. The storefront has remained vacant ever since.

It appears that Nightbird was recently looking to hire an executive chef, based on the result of a Google search, but that job posting has since expired.

Those behind the potential new restaurant will be inheriting a cavernous, two-level space that’s next to Rebellion on the Pike and across the street from the Arlington Cinema Drafthouse.
