G Spot Lounge opened up in Sept. 2010 at 5413 Georgia Ave, NW. In Sept. 2012 we learned the space was for rent/sale – $2,500/Mo to rent or a purchase price of $150,000. A liquor license application reveals it will become Cafe Midar:
“New Lounge serving American cuisine with live entertainment, dancing and cover charge. Seating Capacity is 200, total occupancy load is 210.”
Not sure if that is a typo but that seems like an ambitious capacity for such a small spot. Anyway, with the retirement of the G Spot Lounge – Climax Sports Bar now has the honors for the worst/best name in town…

Domku, Nathan Hill Design, and Petworth resident and community leader Carol Herwig will be presenting at this week’s ANC meeting to get funding for the Petworth Street Banner Project. We are attempting to raise funds through the city organizations, the ANC, and, if needed, through a crowdsourcing effort. Nathan will be proposing two design options at Wednesday’s meeting. The project’s goal is to give Petworth a visual sense of cohesiveness and show pride in our community. If you can make it to the meeting, your support would be much appreciated.

Thanks to a reader for sending on this great news from Culture Coffee:
Our motto is Coffee, Culture and Conversation…we want to get more people offline and in person and start forming that sense of community across all cultures. We plan to share our culture (African American) with others and look forward to having others share their culture with us…the guys at the Ethophian Deli two doors down have promised to host a Ethiopian Tea Ceremony (that should be fun).
Of course, we’ll be offering delicious coffee and espresso drinks, free Wi-Fi and LOTS of culture (spoken word/poetry slams, book readings, chess tournaments, panel discussions with various speakers, featured Cultures of the Month).
Sounds like an amazing addition to Kennedy Street. Updates as they get closer to opening.

In this morning’s post about Blue Banana closing, a reader mentions hearing a cigar bar could be going in just down the street at 3622 Georgia Ave. If true, think that would be a good addition to the block?
3632 Georgia Ave, NW
Blue Banana sports bar turned rock club opened up back in Dec. 2010. Thanks to all who sent word about their closing. I hear that a new management team is being brought in and they plan on reopening with a new concept. I also hear the patio will be expanded and a roof deck could be added. It is not clear how long renovations will take but I’ll be sure to update as more info becomes available.
It seems naming a sports bar, Blue Banana, from the film Pretty Woman wasn’t the best idea after all…
Looking forward to learning more about the new concept – and very excited about the potential for an expanded outdoor patio and roof deck!
