What is Prequel?
At Prequel, you shape DC’s culinary future. You enjoy delicious, unique food and drink from the area’s most dynamic and promising chefs. You help open new restaurants and provide feedback about a new concept to chefs directly. If you are a foodie, there is no better place to be than Prequel.
Situated in the heart of the Penn Quarter neighborhood, Prequel is the first restaurant pop-up complex in the country. With an ever-changing variety of culinary talent, Prequel showcases new restaurant, bar, and bakery projects coming to the District and surrounding areas. Our guests can experience pop-ups each day we are open, throughout the day.
At Prequel, you enjoy:
- Daytime pop-ups such as bakeries, coffee shops, juice bars, and breakfast/lunch eateries in its two-story lobby;
- Evening pop-ups where guests can buy tickets for dinners in advance, and have access to a full beverage menu on-site;
- Our house bars, Brick & Mortar and 4th Floor Wine Bar, featuring classic and original cocktails, and old favorite and off-the-beaten-track wines.
Many of the concepts will also be fundraising for their new restaurants during their time at Prequel, with exclusive partnerships with DC-based equity crowdfunding platform EquityEats.com, which allows ALL District residents to invest in new businesses for as little as $100.See Prequel's Successful Crowdfunding Raise
