Sign installed at Quincy's in Bethesda (Photos)

Electricians installed the sign yesterday at the new, second Montgomery County location of Quincy's, at 4920 Del Ray Avenue in downtown Bethesda. It then lit up for the first time last night.

The new bar, which is expected to open in about two weeks, will offer 4 nights of live music a week. A brick pizza oven will be a major feature indoors, as well as a slew of televisions to create more than one "best seat in the house."

I am very curious to see the dirt-bags that this place will attract...

That looks like it's quite a bit more than "two weeks" away from opening.

They have been having a ton of trouble with permits I hear.

So, this is a night spot opening in a site that has been a pizzeria? Sounds like a gain in night spots for Bethesda.

Thank you, Hans Reimer! :)

5:20 nope..it was Hard Times.

What causes all the problems with permits? Is it the county just being slow? Some things need to be taken care of? Other?

+1 for Riemer and his nightlife initiative! Glad we as a County elected officials who are helping bring us out of this moribund economy!

It was their outdoor area and electrical permits as well as demolition from what I understand.

Oh they have decent bar food. It's funny because the North Bethesda location doesn't have a pizza oven.

Agreed! I'm buying Hans a drink at the grand opening. Right after I pick up his dry cleaning.

This place is terrible and how they've managed to expand if beyond me. Planning funeral now.

@ 5:21 AM - Oh, good. So no net loss from the closure of Hard Times.

And soon that place replacing United Jerks will open, too.

Just three more to go and we'll be completely caught up with the recent losses.

@ 5:21 AM - It's odd that Dyer doesn't mention that this used to be Hard Times. His readers are always interested in the history of these properties where new businesses are opening.

Oh sweet. Another plus for the MoCo nighttime economy initiative. A welcome addition to the bar scene in Moco. Can't wait for untappd too.

Kudos to Leggett and the council for helping to revitalize the county's "nighttime economy."

Hopefully this will be successful. The one in North Bethesda seems to be.

Why is that electrical cable in the last photo shaped like a noose? Is that meant as a warning to Dyer?

Oh boy I hope this is as filthy and disgusting as the Gaithersburg location!!

5:05 It will be the haven for the refugees from Steamers. Rats running from a downed ship.

Dyer error in the opening statement, there are three Quincy's in MoCo, you're mission is to find the original. It's still operating.

Little tough to tell from that photo but it looks awfully narrow across from the bar. Man, I'm missing HT.

great, just what we don't need, more pizza. leave that to the professionals guys. how does that fit into an irish bar chainlet? it doesn't.

Sounds great. Live music too.
Should do better than Villain & Saint.

@6:51 AM - That is how extra slack in wiring is normally stored.

More sign news: Suma (former Nest) put up their sign today.

Isn't this place supposed to have a roof top deck? Either I read it on here or other Bethesda blog websites but I clearly remember someone saying they will have rooftop eating...

Robert Dyer said...

5:28: Nope, you need a new calculator.

Robert Dyer said...

6:28: Wrong - the "nighttime economy" initiative was a complete failure, as I've documented every step of the way on this blog.

Robert Dyer said...

5:24: Wrong! Sorry, but Hans Riemer has absolutely nothing to do with this establishment opening. In fact, his policies and actual votes on the Council have made it more expensive for this and other businesses to operate.

I remember hearing about a roof deck too. What up with that?

1:22 but without linked supporting evidence despite numerous reasonable requests.

Your opinion and writing as stated in your article does not always equal facts and days.

To the best of my memory, of the night spots that existed in 2010, the only ones that have closed and not re-opened as new night spots, and are not currently under construction to transform them into new night spots are the following:

-Steamers (lost liquor license due to repeated violations)

-Relic (lost liquor license due to repeated violations)

-Ri Ra (Arlington location closed at the same time)

Hey Dyer, this is the THIRD Quincy's in MC. Gaithersburg, Rockville (don't call it North Bethesda) and now Bethesda.

"Every report laid out the indisputable facts and data"

Lol. I don't even think you seriously believe that.


"Stop lying"

It's funny the same words cross my mind when I read many of the 'op-eds' on this blog.

Dyer wouldn't know a legitimate "nightspot" if it sat on his face, he probably thinks they should all be like "The Peach Pit" Birdbrain

Anonymous said...

@2:13 I can think of more. Tommy Joe's old location (yeah they moved, but they took over a failing nightspot, so it's a net loss of 1 nightspot); Blackfinn; Hanaro (ok almost dead, not dead yet); Parva, Parker's, Nest, Hard Times.

Probably depends on how you classify nightlife. All those places had a decent bar and happy hour scene, though not all were nightclubs.

Anonymous said...

@ 6:52 PM - The site that was The Roof, later Urban Heights, and now the relocated Tommy Joe's, was an abandoned furniture repair shop in 2010, so it's not a net loss.

Parva was the Angeethi Indian restaurant in 2010. Also not a net loss.

Not to intrude on this little squabble, but what the heck does it matter what opened when. closed when...minor details.

Is there more nighttime economy in Bethesda now then there was 3 years ago? I don't see or hear of it. So the initiative isn't working or isn't working as well as planned. That's not a win in my book.

Please go back to your mindless bickering.
