Long Shot partners ready restaurant openings in 2019, 2020
Sixth Engine, a historic restaurant in Mount Vernon Triangle, occupying a space once the oldest firehouse in the District, has been sold. Long Shot Hospitality sells the Sixth Engine location as they make moves for new restaurants in 2019 and 2020. Sixth Engine, in the up-and-coming Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhood of Washington, D.C., will change hands to the partners who operate The Pub and the People. The new owners are looking to convert the Sixth Engine space to a concept similar to their The Pub and the People restaurant and bar in Bloomingdale.
The sale by Long Shot Hospitality doesn’t include the restaurant’s name “Sixth Engine.” Long Shot appears focused on readying the opening of New Orleans-inspired Dauphine’s at Carr Properties’ beautifully-massive Midtown Center in D.C. this year, and unveiling the second restaurant location of The Salt Line concept at the 4040 Wilson Boulevard development in Arlington, Va.
“We feel so fortunate that our commitment to the greater D.C. area will continue with the development of new concepts—including the Fall 2019 opening of Dauphine’s in downtown D.C., as well as the Spring 2020 opening of a second The Salt Line location in Ballston, Va.,” said Long Shot partner Jeremy Carman through the company’s publicist.
Long Shot Hospitality operates Town Hall, The Dubliner and The Salt Line. The partners include award-winning Chef Kyle Bailey, Jeremy Carman, Gavin Coleman, and Paul Holder. The Pub and the People is owned by Nick Bemel, Matt Murphy, Brittany Ryan and Jeremy Gifford, according to Eater DC.
