Another Capitol Hill Dive Takes a Dive: Pour House to Close

It’s about to get harder to find a grubby place for a beer on Capitol Hill. The Pour House at 319 Pennsylvania Ave. SE will close its doors on April 30, Tim Ebner of the Washington City Paper’s Young and Hungry blog reports.

The closure will make way for a new restaurant from the owners of Sonoma just up the block, the Washington Business Journal is reporting.

For those of who like their brews in dark corridors, this has not been a kind year. The Lil’ Pub closed up shop in January, giving way to more toilet paper storage for neighboring CVS. The closing of a Pour House, which itself displaced dive Poli-Tiki, is just another blow for lovers of quaint. Boo!
