And So Ends The Short Existence of Corporate Bar & Grill

He was no dragon. Fire cannot kill a dragon.

I sort of hope that they burned the sign before they had anything else to put up, as that would be par for the course with these people. Please tell me that's the case.

I was outside there last night and there was no sign, but there were a couple of pirate flags in the window and a handwritten sign saying it will be open Thursday. Good luck to them!

Piratz was by far the worst bar in SS- hopefully they added beers on tap, lowered prices, changed their menu, cleaned the place and hired new staff. Then it could maybe be a decent place. On a positive note, The Royal Mile reopened!

Angelina said...

I think staffing is a huge issue at the Piratz. If you are not dressed like a goth Peter Pan, I find the service to be abysmal. I wouldn't mind if the staff was just surly, and you could pass it off as the "pirate theme", but this place is not going to stay afloat (pun intended) if the staff doesn't care if you've been sat drinkless for too long--and god forbid you circumvent your waiter and go to the bar... I so wish they made this a bier garden.

Angelina, I've gotta say that your comment just made my night. I'm sitting working late at my office and busted out laughing when I came across the phrase "goth Peter Pan". Thank you! (What exactly does a goth Peter Pan look like?)

Off-topic, but did you catch this in today's WaPo?

Things are so bad, the CVS in downtown Silver Spring had to close its side entrance this weekend when someone stealing several bottles of Tide pulled a knife on a clerk, then slipped out the side door.

“It’s crazy,” said Jamal, one of the clerks at that store, which has almost no Tide or Dove soap left on its shelves. “Every day, they steal whatever they can carry and run.”

I love that photo. OWS should turn it into their flag.

Now that the weather is finally staying nice (what global warming?), I'm looking forward to hanging out in Piratz with the pirates.

Pete said...

I was wondering why the CVS side entrance was closed. Not sure that's a real solution to a theft problem.

"when someone stealing several bottles of Tide pulled a knife on a clerk"

It looks like criminals in SS are trying to clean up their act....ba dum...anyone...anyone...

Anonymous said...

Haha, nice one. Can't believe someone would shoplift something so obvious as Tide with a constant police presence within the block. All for $5 a jug? One has to have a real sad life for that to make any sense at all.

Sligo said...

I happened to read about this whole Tide-as-currency trend last week. Guess it really is nationwide.

im curiouse to know where all these people who express outrage at the closing of piratz tavern were when it actually existed. Seems like most of these people who are complainingt just like to complain and never actually went to Piratz.

Point being, they closed because they didnt do much business and what they had wasnt working. period. Im sure a few people will say "oh man i went there all the time it was great"...yea you and about 4 other people.

I really hope that place doesnt come back, a. it sucked and b. such an eye-sore too.

Boo, hiss!

Besides, they're probably part of a money laundering scheme...

Well if you get sick of watching the 3 ice skaters try to navigate the melting rink, or avoiding the quarter guy, you can always watch people run out of CVS with jugs of Tide. Who says we have no entertainment in DTSS?

Anonymous said...

Who wants to take an over/under on how long it takes that rat lair Piratz to go back under?

Hopefully something nice will open there eventually.

Anonymous said...

i give it about 3 weeks.

Danielle Meitiv said...

How cool would it be if Piratz actually got it's act together with good beer, good food AND good service PLUS the kitschy pirate stuff?

I would definitely go there - I'm a sucker for accuracy-challenged, anachronistic pirate schtick. And I'm only half joking: my family has all of the Pyrates Royale's albums and we catch them every year at the MD Renaissance Festival.

Alas, I don't see that happening. If it wasn't blatantly obvious to the owners that that was what this place needed all along, I doubt this will convince them.

"Down, down down down. Down among the dead men, (they will) lie..."

It'll last longer than 3 weeks I'd figure. Festering sores usually do.

dear annonymous..

Please take your tired rhetoric elsewhere.. if you don't like them don't go.. However if you like so many have been trying to figure out what to do one weekend.. why not give it a try again.. maybe you'll be surprised but if not then hey atleast you can say you tried.. but please spare us from your repeating unabashed bile.. which has a place only in the waste baskets of online journalism

Anonymous said...

Which anonymous?

Are you assuming anyone who has anything negative to say about this place is one person?

Anonymous said...

I don't understand why people complain about the service at Piratz.

I never dressed up like a pirate, and yet I always found the staff to be very friendly and chatty. I was far from a regular, but I went probably a dozen times over the past couple of years, and everyone was quite pleasant.

Also, my friends and I generally enjoyed the food as well. It wasn't gourmet, but it was decent bar food. Although I'd much prefer a QH burger for a real meal.

For a Pirate Tavern, why do people insist upon having beer? This is PIRATES, you go there to have RUM, beer is what you hydrate yourself on between different Rum based drinks. Sure it's a niche group, but it is quite fun and especially since they've changed up some things (menu, service, cook, decor, etc..) it's become a much better place to go. If you want beer, check out one of the dozens of other bars that would be happy to have your business, if you want an adventure Tavern is the place to go. You can "escape the ordinary" as the website states and become someone else for an evening, someone who is more daring than you and someone who will remember the experience far longer than the bottom of your next drink. Give them another try and you just might find yourself a place to hang up your suit jacket and don a pirate hat for an evening.

"if you want an adventure"....

really? At a theme bar? With Pirates?

Mr. Wang said...

That place is begging to be turned into a Beer Garden.

Ashley said...

Everyone else's arguments aside, I must say I appreciate the Daenerys reference! I am the blood of the dragon.

Anonymous said...

I've been there a half dozen times.

The theme stuff can wear a little thin, but I like the place.

The food's pretty good and I've never had bad service.

Weird service? Well... yes, but not actually BAD service.

Good luck to them.
