Buddha Bar opening targeted for late April

The long awaited arrival of Buddha Bar at 455 Mass Ave NW is tentatively targeted for late April. I’ve been checking in with the URL of www.buddhabardc.com every now and again looking for activity. As recently as Monday the URL had no content. Tonight it has a landing page – see the screen cap below.

    Wow, I’d pretty much given up on this. Figured the ecomony tanked it, like everything else.

    i walked by there last night. looks like a pretty big mural graces a prominent street facing wall.
    whats going on with that place that was going to become a ledos?

    @sean – I’m assuming the mural you refer to is the Buddha Bar banner that appeared in January 2009.

    Regarding the Ledo building there was rumor that the bank sold it at auction in October. I have not yet heard who bought it or whether the sale transaction went through. The last time I checked the DC ROD database two weeks ago it still did not show a new owner for the property.

    no, not the banner. its a mural ( i guess its possibly a photomural, but it looks painted)
    its inside. and large. you can’t see the whole thing though.

    @sean – OK, I went over there and peeked. I see it. It’s a mural with a dragon over what appears likely to be a bar.
