Once the home of Engine Company 12, this firehouse was originally constructed in 1895 by architect, Snowden Ashford. It was commissioned by the North Capitol and Eckington Citizens Association to serve the Bloomingdale & Eckington neighborhoods and was noted for its “artistic architectural design.”
The Firehouse was officially commemorated on July 1, 1897 and went on to house generations of firemen for close to a century.
In 2013 we transformed this magnificent building into a first class contemporary American restaurant, coupled with spacious and lavish event spaces.
Stepping inside Old Engine 12, you’re instantly enveloped in the history and elegance of this historical neighborhood landmark.
From the original brass fireman’s pole to the third floor Captain’s Loft, we have preserved the legacy and character of the original firehouse that served its community with pride.
If you love food and love people, you’ve came to the right place. We’re always looking for outgoing, fun and team oriented individuals to join our team.
We have front of the house (experienced preferred) and back of the house positions available. Please send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org
