Brass Rabbit Pub set to open next month in former Bracket Room location | ARLnow

Brass Rabbit Pub plans to open next month, in the Clarendon space formerly occupied by the Bracket Room.

In July, ARLnow reported that a new bar planning to have “elevated pub fare with a wholesome twist” is coming to 1210 N. Garfield Street. Now, owner Reese Gardner tells us he’s aiming for a mid-February opening for Brass Rabbit Public House barring delays in obtaining county permits and passing inspections.

Details are limited, however, on what exactly customers will see and experience. A Facebook from July notes that “to keep the place moving” there will be a selection of 14 draft beers, a craft cocktail menu, house-infused vodka and an “extensive” wine list.

On the menu will be burgers, wings and sandwiches as well as a “wide variety of lettuce wraps and unique salads” in keeping with the bunny theme. Plus, there will be happy hour specials, weekend brunch, and TV sports with NFL and NHL packages.

Interior photos provided to ARLnow also show plenty of bunny-themed decor.

Gardner is also the restaurateur behind Copperwood Tavern and Dudley’s Sport and Ale in Shirlington, Quinn’s on Corner in Rosslyn and Clarendon’s The Pinemoor, which is close to Brass Rabbit.

The pub replaces the Bracket Room, which closed in March. This restaurant and bar opened in 2013 and was co-founded by Chris Bukowski of “The Bachelor” franchise fame. It gained a reputation for being a place to watch sporting events, The Bachelor, and annoying some of its neighbors with what they described as excessive noise.
