Revolver Bar, the new Capitol Hill watering hole from Electrokitty Recording Studio owner Gary Reynolds, officially opens in the former Dinette space at 4 p.m. today. From Jimi Hendrix to Head Like A Kite, more than 2,500 albums sit on shelves inside the unabashedly retro space on Olive Way, and drinkers are encouraged to choose the soundtrack.
Round mirrors, swivel chairs, and hanging pendants are a nod to the 60s— and a welcome reminder of lazier days in a neighborhood filling up fast with new apartment buildings. Booze and house-made sodas are matched with a Creole-inspired menu, featuring muffaletta, ratatouille po' boys, and corn-crusted catfish sliders.
