COMMODORE PUBLIC HOUSE & KITCHEN
About The Commodore
The term ‘Commodore’ has a long and storied past throughout the history of United States Naval history, dating back to the Continental Navy.
Commodore was a highly distinguished rank attained by only the finest the Navy had to offer. And believe it or not, this history has roots right here in Washington, DC. The first US Naval Officer to attain that rank was John Barry. Commodore Barry received his commission from President George Washington in 1797. This after the two had a history dating back to when General George Washington had dispatched Barry to Washington to establish ‘Military District No. 5’ which you know today as Buzzard’s Point. Of more recent DC history, the USS Barry (DDG 933) sat on display at the Washington Navy Yard until May of 2016. Today, ‘Commodore’ is no longer a rank, yet an honorary title for distinguished Naval Officers that is not used in any official capacity.
With ‘Public Houses’ also holding a long and storied history in the hospitality industry, we wanted to blend a distinguished look and feel befitting a ‘Commodore’ inside this great space and neighborhood. The Commodore Public House & Kitchen is here to be everyone’s safe haven, their place to unwind, enjoy a well-crafted cocktail, a glass of wine, a quality American Craft brew and a delicious meal while in the midst of friends and great conversation.
