Brass Tacks closed quietly over the weekend.

Brass Tacks, a divey Georgetown favorite for its weekend brunch, cool cocktails, and live jazz, closed last Saturday, according to a sign on the door spotted by a tipster. The website has been suspended too, although there’s no note about the shutter on Facebook.

A note on Yelp actually says the closure is temporary, with the restaurant scheduled to reopen May 1, 2019, but there’s no info to support that at the moment. Eater will update if more details become available.

Alex and Jonathan Parisi opened Brass Tacks (6105 13th Ave. S) in January 2013 with business partner Skylar Keith. The gastropub gained a following for its reliable cocktails, burgers, brisket mac and cheese, live jazz, and weekend brunch, which featured indulgent classics like chilaquiles, French toast, corned beef hash, and biscuits and gravy.

When it opened, Brass Tacks shared a kitchen with the Parisis’ cafe next door, Ground Control, which they replaced last year with popular taco shop Tu Cantinas. Maybe the owners want to expand that business?
