Marion Street Tavern

Capitol Hill is changing quickly — or maybe not in the case of Marion Street Tavern, which took four years to open after the 2012 closing of the late, lamented Gabor's in the same location. But there's no doubt that those changes, slow though they were, are dramatic. The owners of Edgewater's Providence Tavern took their time with the remodel, opening in 2016 with a space as different from Gabor's as Hot Wheels are from Corvettes. There's sunlight streaming in through the front windows, for one thing, and no more PBR. In its place you'll find fifteen craft-beer taps, as well as a wide-ranging bar menu offering everything from poke to potstickers. Come early for happy hour, when nothing on the menu costs more than $3.
