BarredinDC reported:

“The cozy spot, officially known as Darnell’s at Manchester, shut down after 6+ years after the building housing it was sold at Florida and W NW.”

For many of us, things were never really the same after the Blind Dog Cafe pop up ended. Updates when we learn what becomes of the space near 9:30 Club.

And since I’m getting all nostalgic – anyone remember Mocha Lounge?
