The Hamilton to add to Penn Quarter's music scene

Hamilton Square, built in 1929, will house The Hamilton, which will feature live music.

Hill Country has live music every day.  SAX will feature live performances and its own in-house dance troupe.

Penn Quarter is becoming the center of a live music and entertainment scene.

As we reported three months ago, there will also be a spot called The Hamilton at 14th and F from the Clyde's group that will feature live music and be open 24 hours a day.  It was originally rumored this space would be called Hamilton Square Grill.

The Hamilton is going to have a 15,000 square foot nightclub on the basement level with a 20,000 square foot restaurant on the ground level.  There will also be a 96 seat outside patio.
The space that The Hamilton will occupy is the older Borders Book Store.  The building is over 80 years old and originally housed Garfinckel's Department Store

According to The Hamilton website, which is now live, Penn Quarter "has been re-energized and re-invented as a major arts and entertainment district."

The restaurant has also already launched a twitter feed and a facebook page.  The space will be huge, holding more than 400 people.

As the owners put on the website, "The Hamilton will offer local, national and international musicians the unique opportunity to entertain a city that is never short on opinions, all within earshot of The White House."
