Get a sneak peak of Black Whiskey on Friday

Black Whiskey is a new whiskey bar/street art gallery created by Kushi owner Darren Lee Norris at 1410 14th St. NW, just north of Logan Circle. The space, which formerly held the Mar del Plata restaurant, isn't quite ready to open yet, but curious music fans will be able to get a brief first look on Friday night.

Thanks to local music blog All Our Noise, the two-level building will host two screenings of "The Ghost of Piramida," a 2012 documentary about Danish indie-electronic band Efterklang's efforts to record material for its latest album in Piramida, an abandoned Russian mining town deep inside the Arctic Circle. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the 57-minute documentary will be shown at 7 and 9 p.m. There's room for 60 people at each screening, and there's no charge for admission.

Black Whiskey's kitchen isn't quite ready to go, so food and drinks will be provided by Kushi's Kushi-Moto food truck, which will be parked outside the front door.
