Two new bars open on Ballard Ave

There are two new watering holes on Ballard Avenue – The Sexton and Macleod’s Scottish Pub.

The Sexton is in the former Madame K’s location.

The Sexton (5327 Ballard Ave NW) had its soft opening last week and is now in full swing.

The drink menu features a laundry list of booze, craft cocktails, a few wines and local beer. The food menu is full of small-plate Southern comfort food such as collard greens, mac and cheese and buttermilk fried chicken. The menu can be found here. They are open 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. everyday but Monday – although the sign on the door says they’ll be open seven days a week starting in 2012.
