Childe Harold on the Move?

The Dupont Current is reporting that high rent may force the 40-year-old Childe Harold Restaurant and Saloon to move to a new location.

The article quotes owner Hossein Shirvani as saying that the rent and property taxes for the four-level space at 1610 20th St. NW. have gotten too high.

But fans of the old saloon shouldn't panic yet. The story also quotes Shirvani as saying, "The Childe Harold will stay in the area." He told The Current that he is considering several spaces nearby, including the building he owns next door at 1608 20th St. NW.
