Seven Corners Pub to have new owner



The Seven Corners Pub, one of the few gathering places in Mason District with live music, is in the process of being purchased by a company called Ezzat Trading, says Rouni Chiha, who will become the new manager if the deal is finalized. 

The downstairs area of the pub, at 6315 Leesburg Pike, will become a hookah bar, Chiha says. The upstairs area will be a bar and restaurant specializing in Middle Eastern food. It will have karaoke, a DJ, and an especially long happy hour, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. He hasn’t decided yet whether to have live music.

Chiha expects the new place to open, with a new name, around May 15. The new name hasn’t been determined. 

According to Chiha, Ezzat Trading is a Middle Eastern-based company involved with rental cars, wholesale tobacco, title loans, heavy equipment, and shopping centers. Chiha is the former food and beverage manager of a Sheraton Hotel in Abu Dhabi.

    1. Yep. Title loans, rental cars, heavy equipment and now a bar. Seems like they have all they need to run a bad operation. Hope I am wrong, but this does not sound like a good move.

    2. I admit to being saddened that a british pub - of which I don't know of any other in the vicinity - is being replaced by a bar to go smoke - of which there is another right down the road.

      It is really hard to imagine this in any way other than a downgrade.

  5. I still don't understand how you can't smoke a cigarette or e-cig in a bar (I don't smoke either) but as long as it's a hookah it's all good. Wonder why....

    1. There are plenty of bars you can smoke at in Virginia. They have separate areas.
