UPROAR – This newly opened bar near 7th St & Florida Ave NW bills itself as “DC’s Newest Bear Bar.” UPROAR opened January 21st as the first flakes of Snowzilla started to fall. I’ve spoken with Chad, the owner, and he wants to work with other events and Bear groups in DC to compliment current events. A narrow bar and restaurant with two floors and outside patio, UPROAR is holding a Bear Happy Hour tonight  at 5:00 pm to continue to introduce themselves to the community.

woof-den-bar

Woof Den Sports Bar – The bar below the adult shop Bite the Fruit (formerly The Leather Rack) has been rebranded and opened as a new sports bar with pool. I haven’t found much information on what they have planned but they are reaching out to the Bear community.

Irish-Pub-Restaurant
