In November, a new sports bar will open on H Street in downtown DC. You’re going to love the name. The bar will be called the Sin Bin, and it will be devoted to the Washington Capitals.
This morning, the newly named general manager of the bar, Chris Conner, had a question for us.
@russianmachine what are ur thoughts on a new CAPS focused Sports Bar on H St called the Sin Bin? What would u as a fan like to see in it?

According to Dan Steinberg, the property will have a rooftop deck and a dozen TVs:
Of course, the business won’t rely solely on Caps or hockey fans. They’re aiming to have a strong English Premier League presence, and will also broadcast all the other American sports you’d expect to find at a sports bar. (There are also plans to broadcast international events like the Cricket World Cup.) There will be three bars, a rooftop deck and around a dozen TVs in the 2,400 square-foot space, which Ashraf owns.
But McQuaid said it will be clear that this is a Caps bar. They’re hoping to bring some players out to the grand opening. They’re getting a custom-designed version of the horse-racing boardwalk game you’ve seen at Rehoboth, complete with Caps players riding the horses. And there will likely be other Caps-themed decorations and memorabilia.
That I will need to see.
Sounds like a perfect place to throw an RMNB party, no? What else would you guys like to see in the bar?
