The Pleasure Place Closes, Posh New Condos Coming Across the Canal

1063 Wisconsin Ave, NW

Sad news for Pleasure Place fans – in 2010 Pleasure Place closed in Dupont and now the Georgetown location has closed as well.

Also, some interesting developments across the canal from the closed Pleasure Place:


1055 High’s website says:

“An all new exquisitely appointed boutique condominium building overlooking the C&O Canal in the heart of Georgetown. Seven exceptionally large residences above two unique stores.

Rooted in the architectural vernacular of the area, 1055 High’s historic-industrial aesthetic is balanced by a collection of modern finishes, features, and amenities. The property’s name is similarly contextual – High Street was the name of what is now Wisconsin Avenue until 1895, when Congress mandated that Georgetown’s street names be changed.

– 3,300-4,300 Square Feet in Size
– Expansive Private Terraces
– Separate service entrances in each residence
– Three to four bedroom residences
– Spa inspired bathrooms
– European chef-designed kitchens
– Walls of oversized windows with Lutron Mecho Shades
– Multiple exposures with canal, urban and garden views
Priced from $3MM to $5MM

  • Too bad. I had a pretty comical experience there one time.

  • There is literally no where in the district to buy penis straws. Know how I know? Because I’m a procrastinator that has hosted several bachelorette parties!!!

  • Interesting that the ultra luxury condos in Georgetown aren’t built with 4 stories of lumber like all the new buildings across town…

  • Oh no! Never got a chance to use my gift certificate!

  • Where am I going to buy my glass sculptures?

  • It was just a matter if time. RIP Pleasure Chest (original name!).

  • That was a cool little store, that sold just about every type of hard to find condom imaginable. The staff was also really knowledgeable about the products they carried. Now one less reason to go to Georgetown.
