Owner: Bethesda's Box Bar Is Closed


Published:

The Box Bar & Grill is closed according to the restaurant's Facebook page, which blames the owner of the failed Dry Fried Wing Bar and Grille for its unsuccessful attempt at a comeback. Jason McCarther, who opened the original Box Bar & Grill (7525 Old Georgetown Rd.) in 2011, said in February that he had bought back the space from Dry Fried Wings. McCarther said then that George Farrell, who opened Dry Fried Wings in the space in January, defaulted on payments and came to him to buy back the bar. McCarther had planned to reopen the bar as Roc Bar Live, featuring local live music, in March. That never happened. Neither McCarther nor Farrell responded to requests for comment. McCarther's downtown D.C. Roc Bar Nightclub, which opened in September, appears to have also closed. "The box is closed, thanks to the negligence of George Farrell. i woulnt recomend doing business with him," reads the Facebook post, which includes links to Farrell's Facebook page and profile. "Jason and I apologize and thank all of our loyal customers that showed us so much love." The Hooters-themed Box Bar and Grill gained quite the reputation after it opened, with waitresses and bartenders in skimpy referee uniforms advertising "the sexiest wings in Bethesda."
