Someone’s opening up a new bar named Bardo on Bladensburg Road, occupying the current location of the “Tire Base” tire shop at 1200 Bladensburg Road, as well as some adjoining buildings. It will feature “New Tavern, Brewpub with microwave nachos, outdoor BBQ grill for Summer Garden”.
UPDATE: This project appears somewhat related to the old Dr. Dremo’s in Arlington, which originally had the name Bardo and the owners were looking to open a brew pub using Bardo’s recipes. ABRA documents show “William Irwin Stewart” submitted the application, and he was the owner of Dr. Dremo’s.
