You may have noticed the extensive renovations under way at the Jury’s Hotel in Dupont Cirle. Now simply called “The Dupont Hotel” (how very creative of them), it promises to be “the hotel the Circle has waited for.” I never did see what the old rooms looked like, but if their website is any indication, the new rooms will indeed be quite posh.
Going with that theme, the cheesy Biddy Mulligan’s is also to be replaced by, what else? “Bar Dupont”. I guess it’s better than naming it The Dupont Bar. I have to wonder if the new bar will still be a destination for bachelorette parties and St Patrick’s Day celebrations or will it be more upscale with $15 drinks and velvety booths? Hey, as long as they have a good wine list, some creative food offerings, and of course Blueberry Stoli, I’ll be there.
