917 5th Street, NW

Finally a bit of info about the long vacant space at 917 5th Street, NW just south of K Street. A liquor license application says the space will become a restaurant called Success and it will be a:

“New full service restaurant focusing on local farm ingredients and organic and seasonal ingredients with full bar. Occasional live music. Occupancy load is 130.”

Looking north towards K Street

    Looks fantastic. This is great news, because the last restaurant in this space, Lease, was terrible!

      What are you talking about? “Lease” ?? It was a Peep-Booth Sex Shop before and had been for years and years.

    I sure hope this venture will be a “success.”….do you see what I did there?

  • Stupid name

    From the outward appearance of the building I can only imagine what kind of work was needed on the inside. Kudos to those involved in breathing some life back into that short block.

    Good news.
    Something is going on across the street from this place as well (where the old paint store is).

  • Such great news! I live across the street on 5th and have seen (and heard) all of the construction on this square block. It really looks like things are starting to pick up. Thanks for sharing PoP!
