Justin Cara-Donna
Andrew Hurn

Andrew Hurn and Justin Cara-Donna met working at some of the city's best bars including, Columbia Room, Silver Lyan, and Green Zone. Starting from a friendship based in great food and music, they are now stoked to bring a cozy, late-night cocktail den with a touch of mischief to Navy Yard.

When talking about their favorite spaces, there was always the refrain of “that place is
trouble”, referring to how hard it could be to leave your favorite bar. This space starts with that aspiration, to live at the intersection of high energy and low-key comfort with good food and drinks; a place you just don’t want to leave that appeals to the trouble birds among us.


The drink menu revolves around a slate of rotating seasonal themes, large format offerings for the table, boilermakers, frozen drinks intended to be mixed & matched along with a list of riffs on familiar classics. The food menu follow with a blend of comforts, sandwiches, and snacks.
