Whitlow’s Reopening in D.C. — “If there’s a comeback kid of DC’s bar scene, it’s Whitlow’s. The casual neighborhood tavern, which got its start in downtown DC at the end of World War II, moved to Arlington in 1995 for its ‘Whitlow’s on Wilson’ decades. After lease negotiations fell through there, co-owner Jon Williams–whose family has owned the bar since the ’70s–moved the concept to U Street last year. Now he’s bar-hopping again, but not far. Whitlow’s 4.0 will take over the longtime Brixton space in May.” [Washingtonian]
