A kitchen fire at the Tune Inn on Capitol Hill Wednesday set off a flurry of speculation and reflection among Hill staffers and reporters about the famous, storied Hill hangout and its fate. Luckily, the bar and its beloved memorabilia — including hanging deer posteriors instead of heads — survived most of the damage. The bar, opened in 1947, will reopen when its kitchen has been gutted and replaced.
Our video team took a trip to the Hill to talk to the Tune Inn’s owner and local fans of the bar about the fire and their memories at the eatery.
