Opening this summer, we are looking for people who share our desire to develop genuine connections with our guests, making them feel welcome, relaxed, and at home.

Part of Spero LLC

Located between Union Station and Chinatown in D.C.’s East End, Bar Spero is the latest concept from Reverie chef Johnny Spero. Embodying the dynamic energy of the District’s downtown culture, the space is designed for chance encounters and lively conversation. From happy hour to last call, guests are drawn to the eye-catching centerpiece of the multi-story space: a sleek, architectural cocktail bar with modern neon accents. As the evening progresses, parties can settle into the restaurant’s subdued, warm wood dining spaces, from stylish four-tops to cozy, built-in booths.

The inviting, minimalist decor allows Spero’s award-winning cooking to shine: a seafood-forward spread focused on Mid-Atlantic fare. In turn, the cocktail program takes cues from the kitchen, with a focus on high-quality spirits that elevate classic recipes.
