After a holiday season full of Fa-la-la, Georgetown will get some Rí Rá as the traditional Irish Pub chain sets to open in January in the old Mie N Yu space on M Street.
Like all Rí Rás, the new location — the 11th in the US — will be constructed from a pub meticulously restored in Ireland then shipped to Washington, DC. Georgetown venue guests will be transported to Summer Hill, Dublin as they eat and drink at a Victorian bar originating from Gerry Nangles Pub… and make “friends” with a notable statue of St. Patrick who recently left his home in Wicklow, Ireland, to begin his exciting journey to the nation’s capital.
The menu at Rí Rá Georgetown will showcase the best of modern Irish cuisine – a menu of comfort food dishes that combine fresh locally sourced ingredients with Irish cheeses, meats and seafood. House specialties include a 14-day house-brined corned beef brisket and a ‘proper’ Fish & Chips.
Rí Rá Georgetown also boasts an upstairs bar and Whiskey Room to highlight one of the most extensive selections of Irish whiskeys in America, including a number of rare bottles.
