Farewell to Fruit Bat
Dear Fellow Drinkers, We opened Fruit Bat two years ago as a way to share my Colombian heritage through fresh South American cocktails and food. It was a fun experiment, a fusion of great drinks and complementary cuisine. H Street NE continues to evolve, and I'm eager to build a new idea. Saturday, June 9th, will be Fruit Bat's last night. We'd love for you to join us to celebrate and say goodbye to Fruit Bat. Beginning next Tuesday, June 5th, we're offering every drink in the bar for $5 from 5-7 p.m. and Summer Punch for $4 all night, every night until we close. Sincere thanks to all our patrons who have dined and drunk with us over the last two years.
We will close for renovation and reopen July 1st. To welcome the new concept, we will hold several private opening parties the first week. Please stop by Fruit Bat next week to add your name to the guest list! If you'd like to track our progress, we invite you to follow us on twitter @mysterybardc. Church & State, upstairs at 1236 H, will be open during renovation and will now be open Tuesday-Saturday. Follow @churchstatedc to get info about upcoming events and specials for the summer. We are humbled that Sir Richard Branson, entrepreneur extraordinaire and owner of Virgin Airlines, named Church & State his favorite place to get a drink in DC. Come try our new "Seven Deadly Sins" - the cocktail menu that satisfies even jet-setting billionaires!
