Jackie Lee’s Lounge Applies for Liquor License

Jackie Lee’s Lounge is located at 116 Kennedy Street, NW. A recent liquor license says that it it a:

“Restaurant and nightclub serving American cuisine.”

I imagine the walls here could tell the most amazing stories we’ve ever heard. And I’ve now found one of my new favorite city signs:

  • I drive by this place all the time. Does this mean they currently do not see liquor? It never looks too busy there, but I assumed it has been around for a while by the signs.

  • Maybe it’s time to have a PoP meetup at Jackie Lee’s?

  • this place looks cool. kennedy street is going to be very cool someday. good bones.

  • Jackie Lee’s definitely does have potential. The food is good and the minimal wait staff that’s currently there is nice. While the inside is attractive (if not a little cheesy), the entry way and facade certainly need improvement. When we were there, they were not serving liquor. I understand this place does have a storied history. Back in the day it was fun and the place to be, in more recent years, they ran into trouble. Here’s hoping they find their former glory.

  • It was serving liquor as recently as 2007, but was only open on weekends and for special events. It does have a very storied history and was a semi-famous jazz joint back in the early 60’s. The interior is somewhat reminiscnet of the Player’s Lounge in Congress Heights (dark, dj booth, small bar with naugahide chairs).
