1801 L Street, the building housing at least five popular restaurants, is getting a facelift. Among the improvements, per the Sac Biz Journal, are:
- A parklet or a small outdoor gathering space with plants and benches will take the place of parallel parking spaces.
- A rooftop lounge accessible to residents or to patrons of restaurants that give them access.
- New paint and energy efficient windows.
I've also been told that The Rind is looking to add some patio seating after the facelift is complete.
But otherwise, the building management tells the Biz Journal, that it's normal seven to 10 years after a building opens. The construction is scheduled to be completed in the fall.
Whatever the reasons, I imagine that the business in that building are suffering with scaffolding covering their businesses. Capital Dime, though, is fighting back with a "Hard Hat" Happy Hour.
Everyday from 2 to 7 p.m., Rolling Rock drafts are $2, Moscow Mules and Well Drinks are $5 and all bottles of wine are half off.
Capital Dime is located at 1801 L Street, and can be found at CapitalDime.com.
