Ri Ra Heads Inside the District
As if we didn't have enough Georgetown coverage for you today: Miller Walker Retail Real Estate principals Bill Miller and Alex Walker announced last week they closed a 9,500 SF deal with Irish pub Ri Ra at 3123-3125 M Street. Bill tells us Ri Ra hopes to infuse the space with antiques from Ireland. The building (which we snapped yesterday) has been vacant since October, when Asian restaurant Mie N Yu moved out. The building is, of course, zoned "funny name."
Here's a rendering of the new spot, which is flanked on M Street by Johnny Rockets and Urban Outfitters. The Georgetown location joins other local Ri Ras in Clarendon and Bethesda, as well as 10 others nationwide.
