Good evening, neighbors.
Great news for the neighborhood! (and very likely a welcomed new neighbor!!)
Whitlow's (formerly "on Wilson") is moving into 2012-9th Street (a few doors past Brixton), replacing a bar (now closed) that I believe was owned by the Hilton Brothers, and changed names several times at this address. The location is nicely renovated -- from the exterior -- with blue-window/trimmed building.
I did not know that Witlow's was opened in 1946 by David Whitlow, off of 11th and E, NW, in downtown DC, and closed in 1989. Whitlow's on Wilson, in Arlington's Clarendon neighborhood, then opened in 1995 and enjoyed a steady stream of loyalists for its live music, rooftop tiki bar and inexpensive food.
