Jay's Saloon featured on WAMU DC Dives

Local favorite Jay's Saloon was recently noted on 88.5 FM WAMU's DC Dives feature. Jay's is getting ready to celebrate its 20th year in business in September, and WAMU interviewed its owners James and Kathi Moore and some regulars to investigate how it became the "last unpretentious place" in Arlington. Who knew Jay's had a trashy romance novel book exchange?

No news to anyone, but Jay's Saloon future is uncertain. The building owners have hinted at tearing down the old house and adjacent car dealerships and build four story condominiums. I'm hoping this won't be anytime soon, as this low key bar that is litterally steps away from my home is a nice contrast to the typical Clarendon venue.
