More info on that possible Strip Club coming to Chinatown from the Washington Post:

“Burlesque shows may arrive in Washington by way of Royal Jelly, a club proposed in Chinatown…

For the Washington location he is eyeing, in the basement of the former offices of a charity for blind veterans at 477 H Street Northwest, Kane said he imagines a “jazz club and speakeasy kind of vibe.”

Think burlesque shows with jazz could work here?

918 F Street, NW

From a press release:

EquityEats, the DC-based equity crowdfunding platform for restaurants has signed a lease for 5 floors of historic National Union Building at 918 F Street NW, Washington, DC, for its forthcoming restaurant popup complex, pending landlord approval. The space will allow up to five concurrent month long pop-up restaurants, bars, and quick-service concepts in addition to cooking classes, short term popups, and other culinary events.

LivingSocial did an amazing job building out the most beautiful event space in downtown DC that people loved going to. We’re really excited to re-open it and create a 17,000 square foot restaurant popup complex that the DC community is excited about coming to on a regular basis.” EquityEats CEO Johann Moonesinghe said “Yesterday, Bluebird Bakery’s popup in Georgetown sold out all of their inventory in four hours and there was a line out the door, so we know here is demand for pop-ups. We wanted to create an experience where people can try the newest culinary concepts and interact with the chefs behind those concepts.”

The experience will cater to the most adventurous foodies and discerning investors. “We will encourage patrons to explore all the space has to offer,” EquityEats COO Chaminda WIjetilleke explains. “Unlike other pop-ups, which change locations and sometimes sell out before most can buy tickets, we will function more as a foodie’s equivalent of a movie theater. Diners will buy tickets for the different concepts in advance, and there will always be something new coming to the space on a consistent basis.” (more…)
