Buddha Bar Coming to DC

Buddha Bar DC Coming Soon to Penn Quarter DC

Buddha Bar DC - There are has been a certain buzz floating around the city in regards to the latest outpost for Buddha Bar. A few investors have decided to try and open a outpost for the hit restuarant/lounge venue.

According to the Washington Business Journal, an investment group called Little Buddha of Washington, D.C. LLC, has leased 9,400 square feet of space at 455 Massachusetts Avenue, NW. This location is close to Chinatown and the Verizon Center.
With a Little Buddha located in The Palms hotel in Vegas this outpost had beenvoted the best sushi bar in Vegas two years in a row. The Las Vegas branch is part of original world-famous Buddha Bar in Paris.

We hope Buddha Bar DC lives up to its reputation with exotic decor and atmosphere, amazing sushi and an excellent selection of cold sakes. The only full scale Buddha Bar's is located in NYC -Meat Packing District. This is a extenstion of the Paris based, Buddha Bar with was created by George V Eatertainment

George V Restauration has ten restaurants and three hotels around the world. The Buddha Bar has inspired a series of chill out albums was created by DJ Claude Calle who compiled and produced the first two albums. The albums were released under George V records.
This project is still in the early stages and will take a while before there is any visible signs of the venue. This will truly be a much needed addition to the DC restaurant lounge scene in the Penn Quarter district. With a brand like Buddha Bar known for its amber-coloured lighting, rich mahogany furniture, decorated wood panels, lush reds and gold, luxurious fabrics and Portuguese mosaics that all come together to create an opulent and refined décor. We hope the DC outpost will hold true to those standards.
What is truly interesting that the DC area beat out other hot areas in the country like Miami and LA for this outpost. This may be the fact the economy here is safeguarded somewhat by the heavy federal presence in the job market. Whatever the case, we truly hope this outpost is created and built with the same attention to detail as the locations in Paris and Dubai.
