Jonas Singer was born in Bethesda, grew up in Chevy Chase, and is now hunkered down in D.C. Together with Cullen Gilchrist, Jonas has opened Blind Dog Cafe, 2B Studios, and Union Kitchen. Each of these businesses has in common that they strive to build culture and community - and that there is cheap rent in each space. The other common thread is that Cullen does most of the work and Jonas does most of the talking. It works out well that way.
The end goal - beyond paying the mortgage - is to help create the city we all want to live in while also showing the many corporate landlords in the city that local businesses are the best business to invest in - with money, real estate, and opportunity.
