There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
Georgetown institution and “the friendliest saloon in town” Mr. Smith’s will close its location of nearly 50 years around the end of the month. General manager Juan Andino says the Boston-based landlord wants to raise the rent, and “we can’t afford that.”
But that doesn’t necessarily mean this is the end of Mr. Smith’s. Andino tells Y&H the restaurant is looking to relocate, hopefully in Georgetown.
Mr. Smith’s is known for its sing-a-long piano bar, hidden garden patio, and worn-in decor of antique mirrors and Tiffany lamps. Stay tuned for the exact closing date and possible goodbye discounts.
