Well this totally fell below my radar. Thanks a million to a reader for sending word about U Street’s newest bar. I was able to hit the opening and snap some photos. Dodge City is located right next door to Velvet Lounge at 917 U Street, NW.
This spot has four partners – Abdul Kayoumy and Haile Berhane (also owners of Velvet Lounge) plus Patrick Mucklow and Angie Hopson. I chatted a bit with Patrick and Angie who were super nice. Patrick previously had worked at Black Cat and Bar Pilar while Angie used to work at this space’s previous resident, Kingpin, among other spots in the city. Even though it was just a soft opening Tuesday evening, I can say the place had a great vibe. Dodge City has two comfortable floors. On the first floor there is a nice bar with about 8 or 9 seats and tables while the second floor has another bar plus a DJ booth.
I asked Patrick how they came up with the name Dodge City – he replied, it’s from a Go Go album where one of the songs has a line, “DC Don’t Stand For Dodge City”. That may be one of the cooler lines I’ve heard in a long time. And while it’s a bit premature, I feel like this spot has the potential to be the best new bar to open up on U Street since Solly’s.
