“The Eastern” – 7th Street’s New Wine Bar Near Eastern Market – is Open: Photos
by Larry Janezich
7th Street’s new wine bar – The Eastern – near Eastern Market holds its grand opening Tuesday, August 30. But tonight, principal partner Matthew Weiss told CHC, is the “secret soft opening.” Here’s a photo essay, including menus.
Owners Matt Weiss and Mike Schuster have a long history in the Capitol Hill hospitality industry, being owners or co-owners of a lot of local outlets: Barrel, Union Pub, 201, McClellan’s Retreat, Truxton Inn, Café Midar, Compass Rose, Trusty’s, and the Star and Shamrock.

Hope to stop by on some Sundays after I close my antique prints and contemporary pottery stand on the street nearby!
Of all the “names” a Wine Bar can and should decide on its business/market name and these entrepreneurs some how pick…EASTERN. Why name a wine bar after a high school that is several blocks east of its location. EASTERN is the name of prestigious high school that has a rich history and its academic achievement is legendary.
The name EASTERN must be associated with and deemed as a learning institution not a wine spot on Capitol Hill.
