New Restaurant-Slash-Dog Park to Replace Flat Top Burger

Move over Mount Purrnon Cat Cafe, there’s a new pet-themed restaurant in town.

Brewski’s Barkhaus — at 529 E. Howell Avenue, along Richmond Highway near Del Ray — is envisioned as a restaurant and dog park. It will be replacing the Flat Top Burger restaurant that closed last year.

Brewski’s describes itself as the D.C. area’s “first dog bar and restaurant combined with a dog park and daycare.”

“Our goal is to provide an alternative to the typical adoption procedure by combining food, drinks, and dogs in a social environment,” the restaurant says on its website.

The venue will offer a bar and hors d’oeuvres with access to a leash-less dog play area, with supervision by staff. The full restaurant follows a pop-up last August at the Old Town Beer, Wine and Dog Festival.

Brewski’s is applying for an Administrative Special Use Permit to change ownership of the restaurant, increase the number of indoor and outdoor seats, and allow for additional hours of operation.

Among the expected menu items: hot dogs, of course.

“Items to be sold and consumed on property may include handhelds (sandwiches, sliders, burgers, specialty sausages, hot dogs, tacos etc.), fried foods (french fries, chicken, vegetables etc.), cold salads, wings, and flatbreads,” according to the permit application.
