Dear Friends and Neighbors,
We can’t believe it’s been over 5 months since we shut our doors. It was a difficult decision at the time and then only a few days later it seemed to make the most sense. Since then it’s been a long spring and summer for everyone but we can’t thank you enough for the love and support. The world hasn’t gotten any less wild, quite the opposite it seems, but we are at a point where we feel ready to safely open our patio and return to being a (distanced) gathering place.
We will be open Thursdays to Sundays starting this week. We are taking your safety and ours very seriously. The rules are the rules. Tables are socially distanced as per DC Reopening regulations. Parties can be no larger than 6 people. EVERYONE MUST wear a mask to be seated and at all times when away from their table or interacting with staff, we’ll also have our masks on at all times. Sanitizer will be plentiful. Use it. We will.
There will also be a few logistics to make this viable as a business and for the staff:
- Reservations are recommended but walk-ins are welcome if tables are available.
- Seatings will be booked in two-hour blocks and require a $25 minimum per person (more or less the equivalent of two cocktails and a snack).
- You can if you want to but no need to tip since an automatic 20% gratuity will be added to every check.
- If you need to cancel we understand, just give us the courtesy of at least 24 hrs notice. If you’re a no-show we will charge $25 per party to the card on file.
Please be patient with us and we will do the same for you. This is our first try at reopening a bar during a pandemic. Everything is subject to change if we feel we can create a better experience for all of us. The online shop is still open and pick-up is available during the patio hours or make other arrangements with us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work something out.
Thank you so much. We can’t wait to see you.
The All Souls Staff
