The Double D’s space resembles a living room you would find in the ’70s.

A new bar from This & That Hospitality debuts in the Design District.

Short for “Design District Bar,” Double D’s is This & That Hospitality’s (Sfuzzi, The Whippersnapper) latest concept. The intimate space resembles a living room you would find in the ’70s with cozy couches, wood paneling, a vintage pool table, and checkered flooring. There’s even a ceiling mirror above the bar.

Created by operating partners Jermey Elliott and Sung-Joon Koo, the cocktail menu includes specialty draft cocktails like a Cold Fashioned, Litty (Long Island Iced Tea), Miami Vice, and so many other twists on nostalgic classics. And most importantly, happy hour is Wednesday through Friday from 5 pm to 8 pm and features favorite cocktails for $7 each.
