The former home of Sehkraft Brewery was not left vacant for long, as The Board Room Game & Brewery opened in the empty space, in November 2017, and is the Board Room’s second location — it already has one in DC in the Dupont Circle. area. The Board Room will look to continue Sehkraft’s in-house brewing, and will partner with a local brewer to keep the microbrewery operating. It has space for around 140 people in the main bar area, as well as the adjoining “Ms. Peacock’s Champagne Lounge,” which was the butcher shop that now will offer a wide variety of champagnes and craft cocktails.
