Just as I was driving home I passed by the former Uniontown Bar and Grill and saw a wonderful site! An "Open" sign! And people eating and drinking?!!!!!!
Faster than you can say, "Marion Barry" I made a u-turn and hustled myself into the NEW CEDAR HILL BAR & GRILL! New owner, Gabriel met me at the door and couldn't wait to take me on a tour of the new space -- that was already filled with new customers! Did I mention they have draft beer?! Yipee!!!!
Of course I had to get everyone together for a Southeast Love sign -- the very first picture announcing their new space!

As I sit here typing this post, sipping on my drink, appropriately named, "Cedar Hill" (and I got the very first one!) I realize that today is one of those really good days in Ward 8 that make me smile and give me hope for tomorrow.
Happy hour indeed!
Come on down to the BRAND NEW CEDAR HILL BAR AND GRILL IN HISTORIC ANACOSTIA!!!
P.S. I want to take a moment and thank Natasha Dasher and the old Uniontown team for their efforts and dream to make Uniontown possible. Without Uniontown there would not have been a Cedar Hill. Regardless of what happened later on they had a huge positive impact on economic development in Anacostia and in Ward 8. It was almost a year ago when I wrote this post about why Uniontown was important to Ward 8.
|Do you peep that?! There is DRAFT BEER!!!!!|
|Cedar Hill opened with little fanfare but the are already full of customers! I missed my drinking buddies!|
|The very first picture in the new space. |
I told everyone to show their excitement of Cedar Hill being open for business!
|This is how you build community economic development.|
|No more booths!|
|More TVs I think? Definetly cute bar tenders! :)|
|Making my very first drink at the new Cedar Hill Bar & Grill|
|Presenting the "Cedar Hill"! It's addictive!|
|Happy hour indeed!|
|Who says Anacostia can't support a sit-down restaurant?!|
|Southeast Love indeed!|
