PROJECTS: Temperance Hall

Robb LaKritz and Josh Adler's Temperance Hall Project

LaKritz Adler acquired, restored and expanded this boutique retail building near the Georgia Avenue Metro Station in order to answer community calls for the first "sit-down" restaurant on Georgia in decades. LaKritz Adler joined with D.C. restaurateur Joe Englert to open the Temperance Hall restaurant (now called Looking Glass Lounge), a 1920s-themed restaurant and bar, and recruited YogaHouse, Georgia Avenue’s first Yoga and meditation center, to occupy the upper floors of the building.
